Cityfest headliner and Detroit native, George Clinton will release his new album George Clinton and Some Gangsters of Love on September 16th.

Kid Rock added a forth show at DTE on July 25th – what’s the chance of Rock adding a fifth show, I say the odds are 50/50.
This weekend, Detroit legends Bootsey X & Lovemasters are scheduled to play live with the Noir Leather Girls in the back of a flatbed truck on July 4th at the Clawson parade. Only in America!
In none music related news, Detroit has seen it’s first casualty due to the pending actors strike. What crappy luck we have; we finally get our act together and due something to diversify our economy and we go ahead and pick the year that no one in Hollywood can get along.
