Detroit’s Mo Pop Festival was Mo Poppin’ than Ever
30,000 festival goers in Detroit just got their jewels ran, peoples fostered, Tylers created, J’s alted, grams phantomed, and langes so-ed. (Three of those worked) Fun in the sun and shameless in the shade, Mo Pop Festival had a little somethin’ somethin’ for everyone in attendance. Whether it was Run the Jewels, “Burning this motherfucker down” and then giving a speech on how Killer Mike, “will punch you in the fucking face if you grope a girl” (which he should and would) or the lesser-known Canadian punk band PUP made things stranger in the best way possible (that’s also a reference to their ‘Sleep in the Heat’ music video) and provided the first of two dust storms. But hey, stop reading this and start looking at the pics, and okay I guess read the captions, but that’s the most reading you’re doing while on break because school’s out for summer. (Alice Cooper did not play at Mo Pop Festival.)
Author’s Note: All really nice photos were taken by the world’s coolest professional performance photographer Kristen Drum. The rest, well… I don’t see you taking photos now, do I?!
