Launch Party for Metro Times Blowout Tomorrow

Detroit music-lovers are in for a big treat the next few days: the 2005 Metrotimes Blowout. Featuring over 200 acts at 20+ Detroit-area venues, the MT Blowout is sure to put some spring in the steps of this city's snowed-in residents. The musical extravaganza kicks off Wednesday night at Detroit's eclectic hot spot, The Majestic. The property - located along Woodward in downtown Detroit - is three-party-spots-in-one: it houses the Majestic Theater, the Magic Stick, and Garden Bowl. Tomorrow night, each will play host to a different type of musical genre. For those plan-ahead people out there, you've been reading the ads in MT every week and have already snagged your event-required wrist band, which only cost you $10. For the other 90% of you, the special is over, meaning you'll have to cough up the regular price of $20. With full access to the entire show, though, it'll be well worth it.
