With the addition of Ann Delisi's Essential Music to the radio landscape of Detroit I've really been enjoying getting to know more of the Detroit area bands/musicians. Our musical heritage really runs deep, and its nice to see that reflected in NPR stories and the like.
What I'm wondering from you is: What is your favorite local or Detroit-related music? Are you a "Wish Jack White actually was from Detroit still" person? Do you know of a great hip-hop club around town somewhere?
On Friday I attended the Echoverse Poetry Slam finals and watched my friend Jeff Nelson make the team. It was a great evening filled with the rhymes of talented local poets. I hope you have the chance to find just as cool settings for music in the D!
