PJ is Officially Leaving his Lager House

Photo Credit: MLive

PJ is officially stepping down as the patron saint of his Lager House in Corktown. After 15 years of live music, food, and fun he is saying goodbye to the special space that he helped curate and build during some of Detroit's hardest times. In honor of the end of an era, PJ is hosting some end-of-the-road shows to say thank you to the people who spent their nights with him in Corktown.  

The first farewell show will take place on August 26, 2022. The night will feature free performances by The Vibrations, The Firewalkers, The Chris Casselo Trio, The Cheetahs, and Timmy's Organism. The music starts at 7 p.m.

The second farewell show will take place on August 28, 2022, and it will feature free performances by Melvin Davis: Detroit Soul Ambassador, and The Gabriel Brass Band

We are sad to see PJ go but so happy to have had so many amazing nights with him and in his space.

The Hamtramck Music Fest is one of our favorite annual events. We get to watch some bands we love, we discover a few new projects to get into, and we get to see a lot of friends. This year's triumphant return to Hamtramck promises to be one of the best years yet with great venues and a solid musical lineup. More importantly, August 10th is your last day to get a weekend wristband for $20, they will be going up to $25 on August 11th. Then, the Hamtramck Music Festival will kick off this Thursday, August 11th at Ant Hall/Ghost Light Lounge. Most people come out on Thursday to pick up their weekend passes. If you can't make it to the kick-off celebration, you can pick up your wristbands at Ant Hall's headquarters throughout the weekend. Please note that you can only buy wristbands at Planet Ant throughout the entire weekend. So, if you need to get your tickets before you come out Friday or Saturday, make time to visit The Ant first.

We can't wait to see Tart, Audra Kubat, The Bruised Reed, Rough Patch, Strange Heart, The Idiot Kids, Gold Crayon, Milk Bath, Dear Darkness, Handgrenades, Citizen Smile, Amino Acids, Bend, Hell Dollars, and more!
