Detroit: A Band’s Perspective

“Grimy”, “Off The Radar”, “Bankrupt”.  These may be some of the first words that pop into your head when you think of Detroit. What’s the appeal to playing there?

However, when it comes to music venues and the surrounding scenes, It’s simply hard to beat.  There is a specific charm and aesthetic appeal to the music scene here that is Detroit’s own.

Things To Consider When Planning Your Concert
