29 Baltimore acts breezed into the MOCAD a couple of weeks ago and blew minds. The Baltimore Round Robin, a weirdo carnival of noise, punk and performance art, was by far one of the coolest, most unique events to hit Detroit in some time. We’re still having night terrors that feature Blue Leader driving us to school on that tour bus ala Freddy in Nightmare on Elm Street 2. Here’s a video snippet of the event complete with some background on the history of the tour from Wham City Godfather Dan Deacon. Check out those jam burgers whipped up by the hands of Ms. Jana Hunter. Yumsville.

Special thanks to Demonbabies for our badass intro and Beard of Bees for the use of “D.B. Cooper.”

The two-day Baltimore Round Robin event kicks off tonight at the MOCAD gallery. Here’s the concept: 29 Baltimore-bred bands and performance artists set up shop simultaneously “in the round.” Band A plays a few songs then Band B plays their set… you get the picture. Wednesday’s lineup, entitled “Eyes Night” features “a mixture of folk, noise, theatrics, improvisation– music that is spiritual, dreamy etc.,” Thursday’s festivities feature the Godfather of Round Robin himself, Dan Deacon along with The Death Set and 12 other artists presenting “Feet Night” – “music that you dance, thrash, or otherwise move around to.” We’re hoping this just turns into one big dirrrty ‘shroom-drenched key party.
