Now in its 17th year, Metro Times Blowout continues its run as one of the most legendary music events in metro Detroit. Thousands of bands from every genre imaginable have played everything from large music venues to the back rooms of dive bars. It's in these places that music fans have unknowingly stumbled upon their favorite new bands. This year will be no different, as the event will feature more performers than ever before.
