Hijacking a local karaoke night, the reclusive Patrick Elkins announces his intention to take Totally Awesome Fest international this year

Every year, at about this time, Patrick Elkins, the director of Ypsilanti’s Totally Awesome Fest (TAF), calls a big press conference to formally announce the coming festivities.

The gay agenda, the Huron River, and the Dirty Mooney… on episode 21 of The Saturday Six Pack

I knew going in that this show could be a mess. In addition to the requisite six pack, I’d asked our friend Brigid Mooney to come in and show us how to make her signature cocktail, the Dirty Mooney, which, as it turns out, is pretty much just straight gin with a hint of Sprite. […]

Patrick Elkins & the Rainbow Vomit Family Band sing to Ann Arborites about their yoga pants

I never really thought of Patrick Elkins & the Rainbow Vomit Family Band as a kids’ band, but there they were, playing the Ann Arbor Summer Festival today, on the same bill as The Boogers, so I guess it’s official. And I think that’s a good thing. As far as I can tell, there’s a […]
