You Might See Some Pop-Up Music in Detroit this Weekend

Have you ever heard of the Detroit Party Marching Band? They are a small local party marching band that is known for popping up at events all over Metro Detroit. Sometimes their arrival is scheduled and other times you will randomly find yourself in the middle of a dance party that you never expected. Pop-up musical performances are one of the most amazing ways to bring people together to smile and dance, which is why Crash Detroit decided to start a popup musical festival in Detroit in 2014. The idea behind the event is that musicians will popup and have expected and unexpected performances all over Metro Detroit for three days this weekend.

This year's musical lineup includes Motor City Soul Street , Detroit Party Marching Band, Emperor Norton’s Stationary Marching Band, Second Line Social Aid, and Pleasure Society Brass Band, Bombici, Post Imperial Jazz Band, Jefferson Street Parade Band, The Party Band, Black Sheep Ensemble, Klezundheit, and Bitch, Thunder!
Friday, July 19th is the first night of the event. This night will feature various pop-up performances across the city that will not be announced until right before they are happening. You can follow them on Twitter to stay in the loop or hope to be pleasantly surprised wherever you're hanging out this Friday.

Saturday, July 20th will feature a day time party at Clark Park and a nighttime party at The Old Miami. This is your chance to see some of the musical acts do activities with the family and pop-up parades that everyone can participate in. The night time party will feature music, dancing, drinks, and fun.

The final day of this year's Crash Detroit event will take place during the day at The Dequindre Cut Freight Yard. Come hang out in the freight yard, have some drinks and see what kind of music comes through, if you like it you can get up dance!
