Detroit Proud music fans! One of our favorite Detroit blogs, (or as they call themselves, the “anti-blog”) MOTORCITYBLOG, is celebrating their 10 year anniversary! For 10 years, MOTORCITYBLOG has been documenting Detroit – from local music updates, concert coverage, and more!
Their special 10 year anniversary bash is also a great way to help generate donations for the Michigan Humane Society. The “Perfect 10” anniversary celebration will feature 10 of Detroit’s talented acts in a fundraiser for the Michigan Humane Society, at The Jazz Café inside the Music Hall Detroit.READ MORE: Michigan State Police Announce Freeway Closures Ahead Of Ford Fireworks Show In Detroit
Mark your calendars for THIS Saturday, January 17th, from 5pm to 2am. “Once again, our goal is to celebrate the longevity of MCB with a fun event which highlights the diversity of music on the rise here in Detroit while raising money for a great charity such as the Michigan Humane Society,” said Chris Vertigo, managing editor of MOTORCITYBLOG.
To get the party started early – we dedicated this week’s playlist to the “Perfect 10” Detroit acts that will take the stage this Saturday…check them out!

YUM is a garage rock band that considers themselves as “Two Michiganders who enjoy being loud and sweaty. We create music for ourselves and for everyone around us.” Check them out here!
The Ill Itches – “Michigan Ave Meltdown”
The Ill Itches are traditional rock and roll and they’re not afraid to show it. Raucous rock, with garage and punk rock elements make them a sight to see live. Check them out here!
Warhorses – “Rumble Seat”
Warhorses are heavy trance-like rock that grooves into a fluid and melodic landscape. They’re redefining what a rock band can be. Check them out here!
Pewter Cub – “If You Can Hold Your Breath”
An alternative Detroit indie-rock band that magically blends pop-rock and shoegaze, Pewter Cub is a triumvirate of sound, matter and sometimes sight. Check them out here!

The Amino Acids are a group of goofball rockers who play a jam of surf-rock music – which is a genre we don’t often see here in Detroit. The Amino Acids definitely push the boundaries on in Detroit and they’re quickly drawing large attention. Check them out here!
Electric Lion Sound Wave Experiment – “Autumn Statues”
Electric Lion Sound Wave Experiment don’t only have the longest name in the Detroit music scene (don’t worry, we kid!) but also are well ahead of their game in the dream-pop, experimental psychedelic electronic scene. They’re also a sight to see live with their colorful light shows. Check them out here!
J. Walker & The Crossguards – “Driftin Around”
J. Walker & The Crossguards are old time Detroit soul, wrapped up in a rock and roll outfit. They’re everything great about the Detroit music scene, with garage, punk, blues, and indie musicians all coming together to make beautifully soulful music. Check them out here!
Ted Nagy – “12 Noon Til 2”
A songwriter his whole life, Ted Nagy studied jazz music at Wayne State University and now plays around town. He’s played Woody Guthrie Festival, Double Door, Ford Detroit International Jazz Festival, Detroit Festival of the Arts, Dally In The Alley, Arts, Beats, and Eats, Hill Auditorium, and many more.
