Hola Martians! Three interesting shows coming up next week featuring American Mars.
First, the Bohemian National Home in Detroit is hosting The Tangential Festival across six nights, from April 18-24. According to the organizers, “folk music doesn’t mean what it used to so here’s six nights of acts from around the country and right here in Detroit that defy easy categorization.” The festival starts this Friday, April 18 with The Volebeats, Misty Lyn and The Big Beautiful. On Tuesday, April 22, American Mars will be playing with Detroit friends Birdgang. The fellas will take the stage around 9pm and then AM will play about 10. Should be fun.
Next up, Friday, April 25, AM will be a playing a three song set at the Detroit Music Awards at the Filmore Detroit (formerly The State Theater). We’re nominated for an award in the Outstanding Pop/Rock category, while David is nominated in the oustanding instrumentalist, outstanding producer, and outstanding studio categories. Feeny has the potential to walk away with four awards and we understand he’s hoping for a sweep by preparing four separate acceptance speeches. Cut to commercial!
The next night, Saturday, April 26, we head to Schubas in Chicago to open up for our good friend Chris Mills. We’re thilled to get back to the windy city and to play such a great venue with such a fine artist. Should be an excellent evening.
Summer dates continue to get added to the calendar and more regional shows are on the way.
Up with flowers.
