Your week-long party starts in style tonight at Menjo's


You might say that "Detroit has 2 much techno 4 one weekend," or something like that, thanks to Movement and its myriad attendant after-parties. But come on, now — why wait for the weekend?

Tonight is the second annual Welcome to Detroit International Vinyl party, hosted by T. Carlita. The lineup features other Detroit and international artists such as Peter Croce, DJ Cent, Alexander Robotnick(!), and Tunis Diaspora 216.

This event not only features a live painting by Al Depree and a book signing for German photographer Marie Staggat's stellar and beautifully produced book of photos of the Detroit electronic scene, but also a live radio show, and numerous other creative individuals on hand, showcasing their talents. 

It's rare to see such a multi-disciplinary, expansive creative vision accompanied by actually great curating. Bravo.

For the price of a mere $5 suggested donation, this is truly the best way to warm up for Movement with some of the hottest artists connected to the Detroit techno scene.

Here's all the details:

When? Wednesday, May 25, 9 p.m.-2 a.m.
Where? Menjo’s, 928 West McNichols, Detroit
Why? Because it’s too good to pass up. If anything, come for the FREE FOOD and stay for the good tunes.
