Celebrate Small's 20 Year Anniversary this Weekend

A lot of bars have come and gone in Hamtramck over the years, but through it all, there has always been one staple. Small's has sit at the corner of Caniff and Conant since 1999. A few years after opening its doors, the bar was taken over by Mike & Natalie Mouyianis along with Melody & Dave Malosh. That's when Small's became the bar that we all love and know today. Over the years, this bar has become the home to the Detroit music scene. There's a reason that bands hold their release shows here, their tour kickoffs, and their homecomings. It doesn't matter what the genre is, metal, punk, indie. If you're in a band, you know that if you have a show at Small's it's going to be awesome.

This weekend Small's is celebrating their 20th Anniversary! To commemorate this monumental event, the bar will be hosting two nights of fun, with something appealing for all of their customers. First up, on Friday night they will be hosting an awesome rock show featuring the reunion of Grande Nationals. This is the first time that this band has played since 2013, and we are super excited to see them back on the stage. Joining them for the night are The Strains, The Black List, and The Detroit Dives. Tickets for the show are $15 and 21+ are welcome.

Then, on Saturday night, Small's will be hosting a special 20th Anniversary edition of Thirst Wave and Industrial Is Not Dead. For those that don't know, these two events are dance parties that rotate at Small's weekly. On some special occasions, the two team up for the ultimate night of dancing. This time around, Resident DJs Pleasure Kitten, Elektrosonik and Aaron Hingst will be joined by special guests DJ Jon Noble, DJ Raev and DJ Greg Gnyp. You can expect to hear Dark '80s and '90s Retro Alternative, Post-Punk, Industrial, Goth, Coldwave tunes throughout the night. Doors open at 8:30 p.m. Admission is free for 21+ until 10 p.m. and $5 after. 18-20 cost $5 all night. There will also be giveaways, drink specials, and free snacks throughout the night!

So whether you make it to Small's on Friday, Saturday, or both, make sure you stop by and wish the crew a happy 20th! Thanks for giving all of us in the Detroit music scene a home for so many years!
