PHOTO GALLERY – CHURCH: REVIVAL

After more than two years of work, Detroit hip-hop duo Passalacqua and genre-defying electro duo SYBLYNG (Seth and Jax Anderson of Flint Eastwood) are releasing their collaborative album, entitled “CHURCH”. CHURCH is Passalacqua’s first album release in three years, and it was produced entirely by SYBLYNG. Revival is the album release show, which highlighted their independent and collaborative work, as well as a collection of other prominent local and national musicians who influence them.

PHOTO GALLERY: Temples @ Magic Stick

It was a great Sunday evening in Detroit.  We were invited to check out the band Temples, and they really knew how to draw a crowd.  For a Sunday night the Magic Stick had a very nice crowd.
While we were there, we of course snapped some great photos.  Check them out below!

PHOTO GALLERY: BIG FISH DISCO wsg JARED WILSON – Jerry Downey’s Birthday Party

It”s 2014 now and we’re reelin’ in the big fish in celebration of Sexual Tension Detroit owner, Jerry Downey’s birthday – Detroit style.

with DJ set by Acid & Techno legend…

JARED WILSON (7777, Dixon Avenue Basement Jams, Skudge)
“Jared Wilson is of a new Detroit lilt. He has not been eclipsed by the gravitas that comes with the Motor City, instead he uses it as a bedrock from which to bring forth his own take on techno. Wilson, armed with his analogue arsenal, forces a new rawness; an unashamed baring of teeth to those who think that Detroit has had its day.”
