Gig Alert: Vega, Ishi, Hoyotoho, Redsean, Select And More Tonight At The Cavern
Playing along with the three DOMA nominees are Ishi, Hoyotoho and DJ FakeBeat, Mudd says. Avenue Arts owner Edward Ruiz will handle visual projections and LCD lights, and painter Josh Judkins will have art on display. Despite what The Cavern's Web site says, however, The Burning Hotels will not play.
Mudd is hoping tonight's anniversary party will give the event a shot in the arm, attendance-wise. Otherwise, it may no longer be a viable weekly event.
When the event started last year, it averaged 40 to 70 people per night; now, attendance is down to 25 to 35, he estimates. Mudd hopes to get it consistently back up to at least 40 or 50 people.
Though Detour usually is free, tonight's talent comes at a price, especially for the fashionably late; cover is $6 before 11 p.m. and $8 after.
