People tend to sometimes have the opinion that “nothing is going on in Detroit.” This, of course, is wrong. Remember Rock City? Yeah…that was fun. Anyway, here’s a couple of worthy, Detroit-centric news bits that we found while poking around the Internets.
Stereogum has posted an interview with Pas/Cal‘s Casmier Pascal, talking about a new song from their upcoming album that we already reviewed called “Glorious Ballad of the Ignored.” It’s about nerds getting beat up.
Pitchfork has a little blurb up about Comerica Cityfest — the one where the Zombies, Broken Social Scene, and a bunch of great locals, ranging from the Dead Bodies to Zoos of Berlin are playing; the one where you can eat fish ‘n chips for 11 dollars, er, we mean, eight tickets.
Webvomit points out that there is a benefit show for Slow’s BBQ employee Nancy Naperala — who, sadly, suffered a stroke a few weeks ago — happening TONIGHT at the Bohemian National Home, featuring Magic Shop, Dark Red, Shadiamond La Freedom, Sweet Bird, and the Readies. Doors are at 9:00 pm, and it’s a mere 10 bucks to get in.

Pas/Cal, I Was Raised On Matthew, Mark, Luke & Laura (Le Grand Magistery, 2008)
Listen: “You Were Too Old For Me”
Five fucking years. That’s how long we’ve had to wait for an official full-length album from Detroit’s foppishly fantastic Pas/Cal. And if you’re addicted to the same kind of romantic, literate pop that these guys produce, a five year wait for their magnum opus seems more like five hundred. Read more

VHS or Beta? Apparently it’s Beta, because that shit doesn’t fit in Rock City‘s VCR. Yep, VHS or Beta have dropped off the Rock City lineup (sorry Cure fans). The good (no, great!) news is that we somehow convinced the classy gents in Pas/Cal to take their place, and make a rare local appearance at our little shin-dig. Catch them Friday, June 13, at 11:15 pm inside the Majestic Read more
