Hip In Detroit Hosts Det X Det VI, Plus a Ticket Giveaway!

Detroit by Detroit is one of my favorite events of the year for one simple reason, it's an all out celebration of Detroit music. It mixes together some of Detroit's best artists to cover some of Detroit's best artists. The lineup is always jam packed with talent of all ages and the lineup showcases a variety of music styles from different decades. Sometimes, I love the band that is performing the cover and sometimes I love the band that is being covered.

This is the 6th year that Oh Snap! has brought DET X DET to the stage and they are switching a few things up this year. The show is moving from the Magic Stick to The Loving Touch in Ferndale. There will be two stages inside the venue and music will be played non stop from 8 p.m. until 2 a.m. this Saturday, February 20th. They have also given us the honor of reprising our role as hostesses for the night. Christie and I will be introducing each of the acts and telling you a little but about each performer. We have had the honor of hosting the show in the past and we can't wait to return to play MC's again!

(Headlining Main Stage) ESCAPING PAVEMENT as Madonna
(Side Stage) STEVIE SOUL & OMAR ARAGONES as The Temptations
