We all know that Danny and the Darleans at their best just might be the finest bump-and-grind garage-soul act. To celebrate their brand-new LP, Bug Out on in the Red, your dollars to see them tonight will go to a worthwhile cause. A group of local musicians and activists (led by Matt Ziolkowski of Mountains and Rainbows) are in the midst of a fundraising effort to support the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and their compatriots as they protest the construction of the Dakota access pipeline through their reservation’s sacred water source. This is of course a key time for all human rights causes in general, and a crucial one for Standing Rock resisters as they enter the start of harsh winter months. And beyond the Darleans, you have the finest in Detroit’s wide-ranging underground of sound, with Double Winter, 696 Blues Band, Shells, and the Drinkard Sisters running the gamut from meditative and loud solo guitar music to wonderful weird pop and absolutely beautiful country-rock. No matter how tryptophan-impaired you might be, definitely head to this, and check out waterislifedetroit.com for more information. Attendees are encouraged to bring warm clothing and blankets in new or like-new condition.
