Black Wine (NJ), Brick Mower (NJ), Butt Babies @ Jumbo’s

Armed with some solid 90s-nostalgia-inducing punk, Black Wine and Brick Mower are playing tomorrow (July 26th) at Jumbos. They’re both from New Jersey, which along with Michigan is one of the dirtiest most run-down states. So what better venue than Jumbos, which fits this description picture perfect, with its location in the area once known as the “Cass Corridor.” You might have driven past this bar and not even have known, because there is nothing around it but some empty lots and run down buildings, but hey they have horse shoes in side lawn! But seriously, this should be a good show, and there is too little music like this in Detroit, so come out and support.

New Venue: “El Club”

The center of gravity in the Detroit music scene is moving closer to Southwest Detroit with the opening of a new venue called “El Club” and otherwise known as the Mexicantown Fiesta Center. It’s only a block from the Bakery Loft, which has been hosting shows for almost a year now, as well as the monthly Detroit Soup. Donovan’s Pub is up the street which also has shows, and a few blocks past there is the new Scrummage venue on Bagley at 14th St.


as you can see, there appears to be a outdoor patio too!

The first show is July 30th at 9pm with Druid Perfume, Mentira Mentira (Mexico) and Protomartyr and its $7, and there will be Pizza. The second show is August 5th with Call of the Wild (NYC), K-Holes (NYC), Moon Pool & Dead Band and Mounds. El Club is located at 4114 Vernor Hwy in Southwest Detroit. In the mean time, check out this video of Mentira Mentira.

Welcome

This site strives to be an online home for the DIY community in Detroit. Eventually I hope to open it up to more writers and have an online bulletin board to post show updates and other discussions. I am also working on a detailed venue list for Detroit. Check out the google calendar too!
