The west side of Ferndale is shut down for a variety of vendors that sell an eclectic mix of mix of things, including painting, photography, jewelry and other handmade items and wares. Basically, it is more crafts and more art that you should be looking at while you're in town. Many of the businesses have also teamed up with the fair to run specials throughout the weekend. So if you have the time stop in some of the cool shops that are located in Ferndale and ask them if they are running any specials because a lot of them are!

The second event that you should check out is The Ferndale Vintage Fashion Market at The Rust Belt Market. The pop-up market will feature a wide collection of vintage goods (mostly clothing) from a ton of different vendors, you can see a full list of companies that are in the show here. The market runs from 2 p.m. until 9 p.m. on Friday, 11 a.m. until 7 p.m. on Saturday, and 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday. Don't forget, you can grab a drink at Revel Bar inside the market and say hi to our friends over at Mitten Crate while you're checking out the vintage fashion show.

During this festival each evening will feature two films, one popular flick and one that you may not have heard of before. The lineup is as follows:
Friday, September 22Out of the Past and Nightfall
Saturday, September 23Gun Crazy and Try and Get Me!
Sunday, September 24The Asphalt Jungle and Cry Danger

Noir City Detroit will be hosted by Turner Classic Movies host Eddie Muller, who will also be doing a Q&A at the event. VIP tickets to attend all three nights of films as well as a meet and greet and the Q&A session with Muller are only $25! Single night tickets to see the double features are $10 a night. You can purchase either type of ticket in advance here.

Hip Gets the Right Stuff from The Right Brothers!

This Sunday, September 24th Hip in Detroit will be sitting down for our next M-1 Studios sponsored podcast to talk all things Detroit with Andrew Miller, Al Casinelli and Jamin Townsley, better known as The Right Brothers. This indie video production company has filmed some of our favorite music videos for acts like Flint Eastwood, Passalaqua, Bevlove, James Linck, Jamician Queens, Tunde Olaniran and more. Lately, they have even branched out and started to make commercials for some of Detroit's coolest companies, including Brooklyn Outdoor, Detroit is the New Black and Third Wave Music. They even documented Nick Cave's recent residency in the city and did some work for High Times! If you know these guys you know that they are fun, friendly, and behind the rebirth of Detroit in so many ways. Plus, these dudes are at every show and event in town. It's easy to spot Andrew shooting stills at all of the shows and there is a good chance that Al might have brought the lights that you see on stage for the night to make it a real party.


These movers and shakers have been making magic happen all over Detroit and it's time to sit them down to talk about it. So, tune in live this Sunday at 6 p.m. to hear the Hip in Detroit,  M-1 Studios sponsored broadcast live on podcastdetroit.com. Make sure you follow us on Facebook or Instagram so you can see what studio we are in that night (it changes almost every month!). You can also listen to all of our past shows here

Win Tickets to See Big Boi at The Majestic Theatre

Outkast is one of the best hip-hop duos of all time. Their double album Speaker Boxxx and The Love Below is still one of my favorites. The duo has only performed together a handful of times since 2007, but they are still creating music out on their own. In fact, Big Boi just released his third solo album Boomiverse and is currently on tour in support of it.

He will be making a stop at The Majestic Theatre to play this Wednesday, September 20th. He will be performing tracks from the new album as well as stuff from his earlier days. This is your chance to catch a legend up close and personal in one of our favorite Detroit venues. Tickets are $30 in advance and $40 the night of the show, you can purchase advance tickets here.
