Welcome to the first edition of Detroit Proud: Around Town! Each week, we’re dedicated to bringing you the inside scoop for local music and film events happening around town! Need something to do this weekend? […]
Detroit Proud was hard pressed to find a local band that was more primed to shine on the national stage than Detroit-based Kaleido. Check out our interview with lead singer Christina Chriss!
MO POP boasts an impressive line-up – and among big names like Young The Giant, Cold War Kids, and Tokyo Police Club, we spotted Detroit’s own Flint Eastwood. We were lucky enough to chat with front-gal Jax Anderson in advance of their MO POP appearance this weekend. Check it out!
As a Detroit artist, I’ve always looked for a place to call home: a place to develop my skills, create, rehearse, and perform. There was no single place in the city that offered all of these things until Detroit Institute of Music Education (DIME) opened its doors this spring.
He’s one of 32 rappers in the world to be selected for the BBC Radio’s 1Xtra 2014 World Cup Freestyle competition.
Live music, hot dogs, and vinyl – sounds like a pretty dreamy Sunday, right? That’s exactly what locals will find at the first-ever New Fortune Fest, coming to Hamtramck’s New Dodge Lounge this Sunday, May 25th.
With driving guitar melodies, touches of Americana, and flashes of power pop, The Paper Sound have cultivated a sound that is uniquely their own….and it’s lighting up Detroit. CBS 62 has an exclusive first-listen to a new track!
Forty musicians, broken into ten groups…tasked with writing ten original songs…in three months. Crazy? Maybe a little. Awesome? YES. CBS 62 had the chance to catch up with Derek John – a local gallery owner, familiar face in the Detroit music scene, and oh yeah…the mastermind behind DETROIT the Album. Check it out!
This will be my second year participating in DETROIT by DETROIT, and I couldn’t be happier. Last year, I teamed up with my good friend Omar Aragones to cover Mayer Hawthorne. Omar and I decided to do something a bit different this year; we plan on covering Detroit artist Sixto Rodriguez.
Covered acts range from the nationally‐acclaimed Grand Funk Railroad and The Supremes, to local favorites like The Hard Lessons and Phantasmagoria.
