Detroit Proud Playlist: Week of 1/20Music fans! Welcome back to this week’s edition of the Detroit Proud Playlist. As we continue to search for new music throughout Metro Detroit, it’s astonishing to find such talent hidden away within our city. They play local venues and bars – some you’ve probably never even heard of – yet they’re complete gems.
21 bands, 3 stages, and 1 great cause: S’Mittenfest – Detroit’s Newest Summer TraditionMittenfest 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.
