Detroit Punk - Friday Night!

And lest we be accused of being NY-centric, here's short notice of a great looking event happening in Detroit tomorrow evening (Friday 30th).

Celebrating three recent books that look at the Detroit scene and including readings, live music, and a photography exhibit, Detroit Punk Fest is curated by Carey Loren and takes place at Book Beat in Oak Park.

The books in question are:

Touch and Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk Scene, 79-83

Punk Rock Saved My Ass

and our very own

Cultural Dictionary of Punk, 1974-82, by Nick Rombes

The Detroit Free Press has a nice piece about the event, which you can read here.
