unfortunately it probably won't both city and festival officials

are hoping that the current pro-
ducer Paxahau, a Ferndale record
label, will be able to assuage the
DEMF's woes.
And judging by the line-up for
this year's festival, there's a good
chance this will happen.
Headlining the show will be
Detroit's own Model 500, Moody-
mann and Jeff Mills. Model 500,
also known as Juan Atkins, is
considered one of the founding
fathers of techno. Atkins began
making electronic music when
he was a student at Washtenaw
Community College in the early

Around the same time, DJ Jeff
Mills, then known as The Wizard,
was exposing Detroit techno like
Model 500 to the masses on radio
station WJLB. Also known for
his work with the Underground
Resistance, Mills has recently
launched into a few epic techno
projects, one of which includes
collaboration with the Montpel-
lier Philharmonic.
But even if there isn't a live
orchestra at Hart Plaza this
weekend, downtown Detroit will
still be pulsing with both local
and international techno, ambi-
ent and drum & bass musicians.

From page 9
The princesses have a bad side,
Snow White is an absolute pill, and
Shrek can vibe with a high schooler
like a nerd who memorizes all of
Gazoogle, but what does it all mean?
It has nothing whatsoever to do
with the central tension of the fai-
rytale villains looking for their own
"happily ever after."
Thanks to a complete lack of
effort in the writing and neglect of
the details that made the first film a
classic, "Shrek the Third" is a dis-
appointment to all but the youngest
of fans - for whom the potty humor
at least is a saving grace. But even
in this tired dud there was a story
worth following. And with more
sequels on the way, that at least is
an indication that this series has
some promise yet.
