This Saturday, April 22nd is the seventh annual Detroit x Detroit show at The Loving Touch in Ferndale! At 8PM, 15 bands on two stages will be rockin’ out the best tunes in Detroit from past and present. This one-of-a-kind show allows Detroit artists to pick an iconic Detroit band and play a 3-song set in full, cover fashion (outfits and antics included).

You won’t want to miss this year’s line-up! So, in honor of one of our favorite Detroit music events, we’ve crafted a playlist featuring a handful of the artists performing this weekend.

Tickets are $10 at the door and all proceeds are donated to The School of Rock to keep Detroit music alive throughout the generations.
