Midwest Fest 2011 Countdown: Phantasmagoria and Empty Orchestra
Phantasmagoria are a indie/electronic band from Detroit that The Metro Times of Detroit says are “hard to pin down”. In preparation for Midwest Fest 2011, the band will be playing Rubble’s Bar in Mt. Pleasant on Aug. 25. They are making their first appearance at Midwest Fest.
Empty Orchestra, from Flint, are making their third appearance at Midwest Fest. Meaning (literally) “karaoke” in Japanese, the band brings a raw, Tom Waits-esque blues/indie mix to the Mt. Pleasant festival. The band recently completed a new 7″ record. Be on the lookout for these guys. They’ll impress you.
