Traveling to the familiar metro sprawl of downtown Hamtramck, we caught two exciting local bands — Dryvel and The Finer Things doing their thing at the Belmont…
Seeing Stars is the kind of wonderful experience you hope for every time you see a live show. This is a rock band that seems truly committed to their craft (pun partially intended as they are on the label Arts&Crafts, hardy har har!). The show cemented in my mind their status as one of the most powerful and creative forces in independent rock today. If you haven’t heard Stars, you should listen to them.

Hey all, A friend of Detroit Chic sent us this info about a big rock show that’s going down at the Crofoot in Pontiac on Sept. 17.

The bands each showcased unique talent and promise and did not disappoint.
As we reach the depressing apex of winter, many of our minds drift past the frost and frigidity and into dreams of months that don't end in "-uary".
