1 Bring your band to the U.P.? on Mon Jul 16, 2012 10:19 pm

So I've been trying to book more bands from downstate to play Houghton, which is about as far north as you can get in Michigan. Slaves To The Pavement came up for a 3 day U.P. tour in early June. They loved it. This month Dredd is coming to Marquette on the 27th and then (two hours north) Houghton on the 28th.

I'd love to start throwing more shows more often up here. Hoping to start booking a lot more for what's left of the summer and the fall. Email me if you wanna talk shows and stuff, or just drop a line here. Thanks.

Yeah, Marquette is great! Nick works his ass of at Merlot to get bands in the yoop. Lately we've been able to coordinate mini tours by having bands come through Marquette and Houghton, sometimes Escananaba too. Sekoitus was amazing last weekend.

We might be able to do that sometime. Think we planned on Minnesota sometime this year. Going through Wisconsin after Houghton might work.

How are shows up there?

I've been wanting to have my band play up there for the longest time. Do you have any available slots on some shows this summer/fall?

Yeah, if you can come up with some potential dates I can find out what's open. I've been booking shows at The Orpheum Theatre, In Hancock, which neighbors Houghton. it's a super cool old movie theatre turned venue. What band do you play with?

Before this year, there hadn't been much going on with punk/hardcore/metal or anything like that in Houghton for 4 or 5 years. There's been quite a few bands in the Houghton/Marquette area now that are playing pretty frequently. Shows in Marquette are great. More and more kids are starting to come out in Houghton, too.

I do vocals for a band called Traitor. Here's one of the newest songs we've posted from our upcoming EP.

I was thinking maybe sometime in the fall. Weekends are best for us, primarily Saturdays and Sundays.

I LOVE traitor! I posted about Lanterns on the Mostly Midwest Facebook page when you guys first put it up a couple weeks ago. I'd love to get you guys up here. Show's would pretty much have to be on a weekend anyway, just to get as many people to come out as possible. Send me an email if you're serious about it and have a potential date or even month in mind and I can find out what's open.

Adam talked about a get-together with all us downstate & formerly downstate guys in Houghton this summer, but it doesn't seem likely.

Does the Merlot Mansion have an online presence? Facebook profile, blogspot, tumblr etc? Also aside from individual facebook events is there an online resource for shows in any of the Up cities mentioned above, Marquette, Houghton, Hancock?

I run the Michigan Hardcore Show Calendar along with Dave Franklin and we would love to have updated info on all shows going on in those cities at any given time.

The skatepark shut down a few years ago. Shows used to be insane there. When it shutdown everything really slowed down here. Who did you play with?
