This Weekend in Royal Oak, Michigan

Tuesday, March 25th, 2008

stage1210heftonesclose10.jpgI just got a promotional email from Ellen Doster of the Motor City Sidestrokers. She handles a few performance spots in the Detroit suburb of Royal Oak.

This is a fun, funky area which has changed a lot since I first visited there… a few years ago, I found a decades-old bakery with truly homemade pies, a block from a funky coffee shop, Mongolian Barbecue and a resale shop with bowling shirts for $75. I hope the bakery is still around…

Anyway, Brian and I (The Fabulous Heftones) are playing the Royal Oak Flea Market (in the Farmers’ Market building) this upcoming Sunday. The folks we know who have played here say it is wonderful, so we are really looking forward to it.

And what Ellen wrote? I have enough ego to love it:

Sunday, March 30 The Royal Oak Farmers Market 11:00am-1:00pm

The Fabulous Heftones make their debut performance at the Market. This duo harkens back to a much simpler time when couples wooed, spooned, fawned and fretted over each other. Their Tin Pan Alley music is happily old-fashioned…

…Brian’s ukelele prowess is unbeatable; Lynn drives the music forward with her bass and sweet harmonies. They “sell” it with their mutual moon-eyes and you can’t help but smile.

Join the treasure-hunting marketeers at the Market Cafe for a stroll down memory lane. www.myspace.com/fabulousheftones
