Every blowout has an aftermath. Last weekend’s Hamtramck Blowout is certainly no exception. More than 4,000 folks turned out over the course of the weekend (braving the requisite freakish snowstorm on Saturday) to make this the most successful fest thus far. Here, then, is a mere sampling of a pictorial recap of the fun. By the way, shortest set of the fest award goes to the Devil’s Robot: Four minutes of stumbling, noisy chaos!
