Saturday, September 20th - It was the fall of 1999 in Detroit. The final game would soon be played at Tiger Stadium. Orbit magazine ceased to print. C-Pop gallery celebrated the grand opening of its new home next to the Majestic Theater complex. Bands like Speedball, Hemigod, sweatysuedelips and deathgirl.com were the kings of a local music scene that was on the verge of experiencing a garage rock explosion. And in September of 1999 a dark little bar on the corner of Conant and Caniff in Hamtramck turned on its red lights and opened the doors...

Come celebrate 15 years of rock and roll with the Small's crew and SPEEDBALL, Against the Grain and Her Dark Host!
