Some friends of ours are involved in setting up “Seize the Week” (the event formerly known as “Punk Week” in Ann Arbor, MI. We played a show during Punk Week last year and though we aren’t going to be able to make it up this year, it still sounds really fun. Here’s the tentative schedule of events:

O.K. this is as curent as it’s gonna get please pass this around cuz i don’t have alot of e-mails. here’s our basic schedule so far, it’s subject to change at any time if we flake out or come up with any better ideas. If you want a compleat listing of events and where they are gonna be and the times and maps and stuff, you need to be at the first event which is the POTLUCK PICKNICK. Do not trust that there will be an event at the time and place writen below this is just to give you the basic idea.okay, O.K.

And an open “stage” fror acustic preformers to play. This is the day that we need the most help if you have stuff to sell/traid you should bring it, if you play music come play it will be open for anyone who shows up. the idea right now is that anyone who wants to play can play as many ten minet sets as they want. also if anyone wants to set up
a game to play, they should. Also bring food to share if you can.

TIME TBA-that night will be a free show at the Nutral Zone with “7 songs” and more bands TBA.

(mostly everyone spends the day geting their shopping cart ready for the race that night. so we don’t plan any events for the day.)

11:00 pm- meet at the Fleetwood with your shopping cart and your partner and get ready for the race down main street at midnight. awards will be givein for first plase in both modified and un-modified carts, as well as best cart and best costumes. there may bebe a party or an after show or something.

ALSO – we may have a wall in town and paint for anyone to work on a mural if they want to. we could use brushes and more paint.

AND -we will have a poster makeing workshop where we will learn how to make wheat paist and posters and then we’ll use them some night. we need contaners to put the paist in and brushes and bring any posters you have already that you’d like to see put up.

if there is an event you’d like to put on, pick and open slot and let us know. thanks, and hope to see you there.
