Remember the first time you saw Nirvana Unplugged? You could feel Kurt Cobain's piercing voice cut through your body. Somehow it made his music mean even more, if that was possible. I often wonder what it would have been like to be one of the lucky people in that room while it was recorded. Unplugged is about as up close and personal as you can get with a band.
Hip In Detroit has teamed up with InkAddict to invite one of Detroit's best bands, The HandGrenades, to get up close and personal with their fans. We asked them to completely unplug and perform inside the InkAddict Flagship Space in Ferndale. We are going to dim the lights, light some candles, and set the mood with some lovely flowers from Blumz by JRDesigns. Then, the boys will take over and perform.
Doors for the show will open at 8 p.m. on Thursday, October 22nd. The music will start shortly after. This is the first of many events that hipindetroit.com and InkAddict plan to team up and throw together. We are looking forward to having all of our fans visit the new location. We hope to have to have some of Detroit's most talented artists perform in the space in the coming months. We chose The Handgrenades because we know that they will make this night more than memorable. We can only imagine how amazing this set will sound.
It's $2 to get in the door and you are welcome to bring your own beverages to drink. 100% of the proceeds go to the band for putting on the performance. We are looking forward to revisiting one of the best parts of the '90s with all of you!
