Hip in Detroit's Picks for the Weekend: April 12-14, 2024

Friday, April 12th - Swampdog Motel Fundraiser @ Small's: This Friday night, Small's is the place to be, for a great show for a good cause! The show is a benefit for Swampdog Motel, donation based lodging for touring musicians. The house offers a place for artists to stay while their on tour, with a kitchen, shower, and laundry, which all can be hard to come by while on the road. Plus, since it's donation based, bands don't need to dish out a bunch of their hard earned cash for a place to stay for the night. In addition to housing touring artists, the folks behind Swampdog Motel also run Swampdog Rescue, rescuing and rehoming dogs in Detroit. To support these causes, Dr. Haj & Bill Kozy, Busby's Death Chair, and Colossus are playing. Cover is a suggested donation of $10 which will go towards the motel, plus they will also be collecting blankets and dog food donations for the dog rescue. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the bands start at 9:30. Come hungry because Mike will be firing up the grill and selling BBQ at the show!
