It usually takes me a day to process the madness and joy of throwing events. This one was no different. Huge thanks to the great crowd of people who came to support Wednesday at Asher Perkins show. From top to bottom the night was awesome. I got to warm up the rig with some Techno (which is rare) and I really enjoyed it. Lauren Vellucci then brought serious heat, she is really an amazing talent. Ernie Guerra then kept the crowd enthralled and vibrant with a great mixture of House and Techno that really had the dance floor popping. Aside from being a really nice dude, he’s a great artist too. Asher Perkins closed with a straight-up fire set of live Techno (reminiscent of the legendary live sets by another one of his label-mates, if you know what I mean). We even discussed after the show how rare it is to hear Techno at The Grasshopper, and to see people respond so well is truly a testament to Asher’s skill, and to this area’s dedication to real artistry.

Our Wednesday night monthly has been a true labor of love these past few month’s. Detroit Techno House started doing first Wednesday’s with Jared WilsonDustin Alexander and Jerry Downey Jr. …And then last month was the amazing Tadd Mullinix + Todd Osborn and Erika show. Now that the Asher show is in the books I’m reflecting and looking to the future, while still trying to embrace the continually changing present moment, which has been fueling this wonderful fire. What doing these events has taught me is that good music pervades stigma, and that the Detroit community will support something strongly if it is done with genuine passion. Thanks to everyone who does what they love and supports what they believe in. There’s much more to come.
