Prince. Madonna. Meatloaf. Among these single-named music legends is Stirling — Detroit’s veteran promoter, club and band manager, record shop owner, and collector of some of the wildest, most rock ’n’ roll stories you’ll ever hear. There’s the time he drove Lou Reed to a methadone clinic, or that other time he befriended Robert Plant, or when he hung with Iggy Pop in Berlin, where he would then get cozy with the Kinks. To celebrate another unbelievable year around the sun, Stirling has once again curated a birthday bash, this time at Northern Lights Lounge with performances by garage rockers the Stomp Rockets, Audra Kubat, Eddie Baranek, and more.
