Get your pen and paper ready for this week’s edition of the DETROIT PROUD: Playlist, because you’ll definitely want to take note of the bands and artists we have this week! From alternative country to electronic-pop, to folk-noir to 1920s inspired acoustic blues, there’s a little something for every music lover out there.
Mittenfest fans, listen up: this year, the annual tradition that celebrates music, culture, and generates money for good cause has a new edition to the festivities: S’Mittenfest. The kickoff for the newest Detroit summer tradition will be headlined with 21 bands – 20 of which are from Michigan and 1 from Ohio – and all proceeds will go to help fund the non-profit organization 826 Michigan. Mittenfest, 826 Michigan’s winter festival, has been a successful 7-year running tradition in Detroit and has managed to raise over $75,000 in support of its free programs for school aged children.
