    ​When it comes to Detroit Bar's ever-impressive acquisitions of national acts, local faves and surprise guests, September was far from a dry spell.

    OC Music Fest: Did We Miss Something?

    ​We first learned of the OC Music Fest 13 months ago, when then-music editor Dave Segal blogged about its "Be The Shirt band/artist T-shirt design contest." No word on if a winner for that was ever announced, since the festival, once scheduled for May 8-10, clearly never happened.

Even as we speak, a cadre of bookie oracles gathers in an underground bunker beneath the Las Vegas strip to call the spread), but regardless of the outcome, Leviathan Brother (and committed basketba ...
