This weekend is looking to be a great one!  Head down to The Works on Friday and check out Underground Resistance’s James Pennington(aka. Suburban Knight) and Jammin John Collins.  This charity event, Backpacking for Success, is free before 12 and $5 after.  They are excepting donations of school supplies, so please support the youth and make it out for this event.  Bring an extra backpack you have around and donate it to support the cause.  (The Works 1846 Michigan Ave, Detroit, MI 48216)

Motor, a classic Detroit venue, is holding a reunion party at the famous location in Hamtramck, MI on Saturday.  This used to be the best spot to see DJ’s from around the world and from the D rock it out on a weekly basis.  When I turned 18 I was literally there almost every weekend and sometimes 3 times a week.  Terrence Parker used to spin on Tuesday nights free before 11 o’clock.  It was an awesome venue that remains in many Detroiter’s memories.  So come out this Saturday and experience Motor for the last time.  Kevin Saunderson will be rocking the decks alongside Chuck Flask, Dennis Cox, Gabe Real, Mike Clarke, DJ Minx, Greg Mudge, and Brian Gillespie.  (Motor Lounge 3515 Caniff, Hamtramck, MI)

Also this Saturday is Record Store Day.  Head down to Detroit Threads before the show and check out some local Detroit DJ’s tearin it up and buy some records while your there.  Definitely sounds like Hamtramck is the place to be on Saturday hmmm.  Check out this video of Record Store Day last year and have a great weekend.  (Detroit Threads 10238 Joseph Campau, Hamtramck, MI)
