A Local Music Festival and Documentary Film Night...
I just spent a wonderful weekend in Detroit that reaffirmed my love for the city. The events that took place this weekend twice compelled me to think “This is the reason I live in Detroit. I pay $400 rent a month (a lot by Detroit standards), I pay for food, for alcohol, for household supplies when I could be living with my parents and spending that money on paying back student loans and...

Less Talk, More Play Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. is one of those Detroit bands getting big outside their hometown. And if it wasn’t official already, it became official yesterday when the band performed on Conan.
My glimpse into my first Dally in the Alley was the ultimate teaser. The weather was warm, the crowd was peppered with those cool cats you so seldom see at house parties or Fourth St. bonfires. Beer was plentiful and food vendors were delicious (still over-priced and available only after a long wait in line). I had to work at 8 pm that fateful Saturday that my friends and I went to the...
