First off, there will be a "Free Stuff" table where anyone can put stickers, pins, CDs, or anything else to promote their band or music related project. You can giveaway whatever you want here and you can take what you want too! Other tables will be set up throughout the venue featuring several different music related businesses. The list includes, Dangerfox Recordings, Detroit Amp Lab, Doc Colony, Gold House Media, Hell Yeah Detroit, Lovepedal Custom Effects, MOTORCITYBLOG, MOTOR CITY GAS - Whiskey, Motor City Guitar, Norse Existentialist, Sunshine Vapor Effects, Rocket-Tone Guitars, The Soundscape Recording Studio and our friend Zachary Hooligan Photography, amongst others. However the coolest part of this event is probably the gear swap and trade. If you have some pedals, guitars, amps, or any other gear that you are sick of, bring it over to The LT and maybe it's exactly what someone else has been looking for. This is a great way to get some new to you equipment without breaking the bank. The organizers of the swap do ask that you try to bring your gear by 3 p.m., but if you can't make it that early in the day, no worries! The swap will be going on all day long.
This sounds like a great idea and a fun way to meet others in the music scene. Whether you are going for the gear swap or just to check out some Detroit area businesses, we're sure it will be worth your time. There will even be some recording time raffled off at the event. So that is reason enough to head out! Following the Meet & Greet, Shadow & Honey will continue to take over The Loving Touch for a great show at night too! The lineup is Buffalo Coven Party, 3FT, The Philter and Jon from the Moon. Entry to that is free as well and you can get more info here. So, it sounds like The Loving Touch is the place to be for some good ol' free Saturday fun! For more details on the Meet & Greet, head over to the Facebook event page here. The Loving Touch is located at 22634 Woodward Ave. in Ferndale.
