This show is special for a number of reasons, the most significant of which is the return to Ann Arbor of my good friend and Great Lakes Myth Society bandmate J. Scott McClintock. After relocating out East in 2010, Scott joined cosmic Americana gang the Royal Wigs who will be making their Michigan debut with us on May 13th at the Blind Pig. In an ironic twist, the Wigs' drum throne will be manned that night by GLMS's other rhythmic half, the mighty Fido Kennington who also pulled off a successful guest appearnce with State Park back in March. Also joining us that nice are newcomers Caviar Gold.
As many of you are aware, the Blind Pig is up for sale and musical community is keeping its fingers crossed that its doors will remain open so it can maintain its vital link in the chain of regional and touring rock bands. My own musical history with the Pig spans nearly a quarter century and Great Lakes Myth Society (and the Original Brothers and Sisters of Love before that) played some of our most ferocious, sweatiest, and epic rock shows on its stage. We are sincerly hoping this will not be a swan song for one of the great Midwestern rock venues.
Whatever future befalls our beloved venue, there's no time like the present to come out and champion great music!
