Steampunk Picnic at Gallup Park 2021

We have all been waiting such a long time to get together. Let’s not wait any longer. Let’s have a picnic in July! We have reserved the Fast Shelter at Gallup Park in Ann Arbor, just off Geddes Rd. on Sunday, July 11th.
It is a beautiful location with walking paths, a marvelous playground for the kids, and even a canoe livery for the daring. We have a large sheltered area with grills and restrooms near by.
So come out to Ann Arbor in your Steampunk picnic finery (not required).

Ann Arbor Michigan Pinball Show 2020

2020 pinball showcase Saturday April 25th and Sunday April 26th with 425+ machines on free play. Our facility is the one of the largest dedicated pinball venues (by unique game count) in North America and has games from the 1950s “woodrails” to the latest games from Stern pinball. Every decade, manufacturer and game type is represented at the museum. There are many rare and hard to find games set up and ready to play. All machines are free play, so one entrance ticket allows unlimited play for the day. There’s something for every pinball fan here (we are the one of the largest dedicated pinball facility in North America.) But unlike other pinball museum type facilities, we are here every day working on our machines, making sure they play perfect! Arguably this makes us the best working/restored pinball collection in North America.

MC Lars at the Blind Pig 2020

I’m joining forces with my friends The Doubleclicks and Schaffer the Darklord to bring you the most epic tour of the new decade (so far)! Come help us as we spread the word about Baby Yoda’s candidacy… as we search for his birth certificate. In a world of division… this is one thing we can all agree on!

MC Lars is the creator of post punk laptop rap and lit hop, which he has extended and powered into a fusion of rap, punk, rock, ska, pop, and other genres. He is post-modern — combining his music with powerful and present lyrics, and packing concert venues with raps about everything from the iGeneration to Guitar Hero to Edgar Allen Poe to Game of Thrones, the Simpsons and Cyberbullying. He speaks to and for people of all ages, lifestyles, and perspectives, and is a story-teller, covering love, life, loss, confusion, and hope. He does so with energy and wit, joined with a strong sense of humor and perspective.
