Speedy Ortiz Returns to Detroit with Destroy This Place!

Attention Detroit! Speedy Ortiz is coming back to town for a last minute show at Jumbo's this Wednesday, June 18th. Their recently released EP, Real Hair, has been tearing up the indie charts on satellite radio. Their last full length album, Major Arcana, was reviewed by Pitchfork when it was released in 2013. They have been touring with everyone from the Breeders to Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks. Plus, their lead singer is named Sadie and she has the sexiest little voice. Check out their music here.

Destroy this Place will be opening this show. If you haven't heard of this band, they are one of my favorite local Detroit acts. Not only are they extremely talented musicians, but they have just enough of that grunge rock feel that I yearn for to make the music seem classic and fresh at the same time. If you haven't heard DTP, check out their latest full length album here.

You can pre-order tickets online for $8 ($9.27 with service fees) here or try your chances at the door the night of the show. Speedy Ortiz is one of those bands that has been really picking up steam, so we expect a pretty big turnout for the show. Make sure, if you don't have a ticket, you get there early and do not miss a note. 

Jumbo's is located at 3736 3rd Street in Detroit and doors open at 9 p.m. sharp.
