That being said, it seems fitting to have a show in Detroit that features Detroit artists and bands playing as other Detroit artists as a tribute. Every year musicians come together for the annual Detroit by Detroit show and do just that. Oh Snap! PR presents DET X DET for it's third year, and it's just a month away!
This year's show boasts 16 bands performing as 16 other Detroit acts. The bands can play as any other Detroit musician they choose, current or from the last few years, and they each play 3-4 song sets. All the proceeds for the show will fund a special scholarship at the School of Rock for the second year in a row. The School of Rock students will also be opening the show for the first time this year. To top it off, all three ladies at Hip in Detroit will be emceeing all night long!
I am pretty excited about most of the performances, but there are a couple I am particularly eager to see. For instance, Flint Eastwood as Eminem, and James Linck and Chris Jarvis as Passalacqua. I recently saw Flint Eastwood and I have full faith that they can pull Eminem off, but I really want to see that live. James Linck and Chris Jarvis are playing as Passalacqua and it just seems to fit perfectly so we have no doubt it will be interesting. Check out the full lineup below.
