The Detroit Jazz Festival headliners were announced today. Dave Brubeck (!!!), Medeski Martin & Wood, and Poncho Sanchez are all playing on the same day. Even though this festival is FREE, I would pay $50 for MMW tickets, and I have paid close to that to see Dave Brubeck. Seeing them in Detroit for free on the same day would be simply astounding.
Unfortunately, that one day just happens to be the opener for the Michigan football season. Depending on what time kickoff happens, it may be possible to attend both, but that hasn't been announced yet. Until then I shake my fist at the cruel fates who tease me so!
