Back for its third year, the Metro Times Pig & Whiskey festival is kicking off their weekend of fun, food, drinks, games, and local music, tonight in downtown Ferndale. Once again, Metro Times is partnering with Woodward Avenue Brewers to close off East Troy Street for this 2.5 day-long festival.
Welcome back to our second playlist in the new DETROIT PROUD running tradition. This week we have quite an eclectic set. We’ve combined our local talented bands and artists, and we’ve thrown in a few of the big names too.
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.
