Win Tickets to See Zilched and Handgrenades at UFO Factory

For just over 15 months, UFO Factory in Corktown was closed. A construction crew cracked the foundation of the building and the city condemned it. But, after over $400,000 of renovations, the bar officially reopened its doors this past October. The space is better than ever before and there are a ton of reasons to make sure that you stop in to see it. You can see a full list of shows that they have planned here

You can also enter to win tickets to see two of Detroit's best bands in the newly re-opened, out of this world bar. Zilched and Handgrenades will co-headline a very early show at the bar the day after Valentine's Day, Friday February 15th. This early night on the town will feature Zilched hitting the stage at 7 p.m. with the HG's following up with a full set at 9 p.m. Then, the bar will host an after party that will feature DJ sets from Tropical Storm Prins and Eastside Jon. Pre-sale tickets to attend the sure to sell out show are only $10 in advance and $15 the day of the show, You can purchase your pre-sale tickets here. Even with a service fee, it is cheaper to buy your tickets in advance so there really ins't a reason not to do so. But we know that a lot of you won't listen and you'll be posting about how bummed you are when the show sells out. So we secured two guest list spots for a Hip in Detroit reader and a guest.

If you would like to be on the guest list for this one, please email your full name to with the subject line #HG. We will draw one lucky person the morning of the event and they will get to attend the show and see the re-opened space for free. You can check out some of the HG's music here and hear some Zilched here. We highly recommend catching both of these bands live, they are worth it!
