Review:Squirt Attack, The Works.

Man, I fell like i keep going to the same 3 venues in Detroit every weekend. Not bucking the trend, Friday night was another ride through the typical debauchery that is The Works. Being that there were other events around town, the crowd was not exactly wall to wall, but grew as the night went on, and other venues closed up shop, it seemed to grow. One thing that was interesting was all the Marines in uniform, not a typical sight for The Works, but it just adds to the overall sideshow aesthetic that makes it such a special place. I got to see sets from Seoul and Terrence Parker, there were DJs in the front room, but the music was not great, so I did not follow up on who was playing. Seoul’s always got great track selection, so his mixes are always eclectic. I get annoyed whenever set time’s get all fucked up, so I was getting a bit perturbed by the time TP took the decks around 3:00. He threw down a great set, dude never disappoints, and it always gets the crowd moving. On another tip, not to sound like a broken record, but when the hell are we gonna push our bar hours to 4AM. I mean crowds don’t get really good until 1:00AM, and if you show up much later than that, all you got is last call, and your stuck carrying around like 5 beers. Get it straight Detroit, everything else in the state sucks right now, we at least are entitled to an excellent nightlife!
