Four Years and Beyond

Last Saturday night we celebrated our fourth anniversary by hosting a party at Zeke's Rock and Roll BBQ in Ferndale. The killer lineup included Cheapshow, Young Hunger, Dirtwolf, Tart, and Ancient Language. For five dollars attendees got in the door and were entered to win one of 25 prize packs full of assorted items form some of the local companies that we love. The night was filled with great bands, cold beer, the faint smell of BBQ and a room full of amazing people. Some people say that you can judge someone on the company that they keep. If that's true, Saturday night reminded us that we are in some very good company.
Detroit has changed A LOT over the last four years. Bands have come  and gone, a booming gourmet restaurant scene has been birthed, and an amazing art scene has taken over and inspired more creatives to migrate here. There is always something new to write about every single week. We look forward to seeing what lays ahead!
For the next year we plan to dig deeper, expand our reach, and see what kinds of new adventures we can take you on. We also promise to get back to the basics. We will be making more videos, doing more interviews and conducting even more ticket giveaways. We will keep our ears to the ground and continue to bring you all things Detroit.
We would also like to take a second to thank all the companies that were part of this years bash:

Nektar Meadery, AE Heating & Cooling, Suck It Suicide, Saffron, Incognito Inc, Brightlytwisted, Biker Bob's Harley-Davidson, Live Nation Detroit, Alley & Eye, Party Store Productions, 1592,J.

The swag that they donate makes the evening a lot more fun for everyone. We love giving out the gifts and it seems like all of you enjoyed winning them. We would also like to thank all of the bands who played, we encourage you to check them out and follow them. They rule. We would like to give a quick shout out to Zeke's for letting us pack the place and handling it so gracefully. And finally, we would like to thank Acronym for capturing some great shots of the night so that we could kick back and relax and enjoy the show!
