The Detroit Proud Playlist is back again – this week we’re dropping a few new names to the scene. What a better way to celebrate Detroit (and keep yourself on the up-and-up with what’s hot) than to jam away to a set list of the best of the best our city has to offer?
Welcome to the first of many Detroit-inspired playlists. Each week, we are digging through all of the talent in local and well-known Detroit musicians to put together a mix of Detroit style, Detroit groove, and Detroit rock – with everything from the beloved classic hits to the local numbers you hear at our own Metro Detroit venues.
Don’t let the name fool you, ladies and gentlemen, The Pathetic Sounds of Detroit is anything but, well…pathetic. Instead, The Pathetic Sounds of Detroit, created by Joshua Woodcock and Lee Majors, is intended to be a follow-up to Jack White’s The Sympathetic Sounds of Detroit, the 2001 compilation album that achieved great acclaim and featured many of the biggest up and coming bands of Detroit at the time, including The White Stripes, The Von Bondies, and The Detroit Cobras.
