Detroit Music Brings the Community Together to Celebrate the Life of One of Our Own

When you grow up going to shows every day of the week you form a bond with a bunch of strangers that don't necessarily live in the same area, go to the same schools or have the same background as you. You find the freaks that love music as much as you do and you bond over the fact that you would just generally rather be at a show. The musical community of Detroit is a close-knit group of people who look out for each other and support each other whenever they get the chance, even if sometimes that chance comes in the wake of a tragedy.

This week we were all shocked to learn that Michael Krygier who played with bands like Jessica Hernandez and the Deltas and Gold Crayon had passed away.  But,  we were proud when we learned that Ancient Language, Earth Engine, The Imaginatron and his former bandmates in Gold Crayon would come together to play a show in his honor this Saturday.  

Ghost Light Bar in Hamtramck will be opening its doors at 8 p.m. this Saturday to celebrate the life of Michael the best way we know how. The bands are charging $5 at the door and 100% of the proceeds will be going to Michael's family to help with funeral costs.  More importantly, this will be a great chance for everyone who is affected by loss to be together and look out for each other.  We all need someone to lean on and there is no one like the friends you made at a show.  

We would like to send our condolences to anyone who knew and loved Michael.  We are truly sorry for your loss.
