This past weekend was the first Trip Metal Fest in Detroit, and I hope it becomes an annual thing because it was truly incredible. It was a free event but I donated anyway because it was totally worth it. The highlight was definitely Hieroglyphic Being with Marshall Allen and Danny Ray Thompson of the Sun Ra Arkestra, which might be the best show I've seen all year. Other favorites included Morton Subotnick (!!!), MV Carbon, Panicsville, Cotton Museum/Ape Technology, Pod Blotz, Viki/Magas, Shades, Andrew WK/Nate Young/Twig Harper, etc. 
There's a ton of other shows coming up soon that I'm looking forward to this and next week: The Orb, Jandek, Ultra Mega Awesome Extreme 9, Matchess...

First and foremost: R.I.P. ISAO TOMITA. Truly a visionary, and one of the most brilliant electronic musicians ever. I've been listening to his music since around the time I started college (early 2000s) and I still have no clue how he created most of those sounds. 
Also, today it was announced that Other Music will be closing. I seriously thought that would never happen. I spent way too much money at that store when I lived in NJ and NY.
