BLOODYMINDED recently played two shows with the Boston noise artist, Karlheinz, in Detroit and in Milwaukee. "Thanks!" go out to Karlheinz for adding us to the shows; as well as to Grey and Ryan of Cleanse; Aaron and Wolf Eyes; The Detroit Art Space; Alex at Thee Crooked Haus - and Shane Tappa – who helped with "Moonwalker"; Juiceboxxx; Chris Mack - for driving up to Milwaukee with us, and Olivia - for lending us the comfortable truck; Ariel of Sine qua Noise, Risque at Bob Evans – where we clearly did not respond to the call for "Help!" --- and to the multitude of other bands, from Detroit, Milwaukee, and Madison, that also played: Dead Machines, Will Soderberg, IfIHadAHiFi, Mumber Toes, Piratecock!, Right Arm Severed, and Loop Retard (…sorry if we missed anyone). Both shows had small but enthusiastic audiences, and we are looking forward to the opportunity to return to these venues in the future.
