SCORE! Fat Cat Flanders/ Record Graveyard (7/09/08)

SCORE!-FlintDetroit.jpg

For a few years I have been dreaming of a trip to my boy Doc Beezy's old turf of Flint and Detroit to do some record shopping and eating. In July I finally got my chance. I found some seriously good records and toured the tastes of his youth.

Now I know why Beezy is so blah about every record store I go to with him. Detroit and Flint are the shit for records. Even if certain stores in Flint have gotten a little uppity (Price books? No portables??).

Here's the Score!
