The Punk Rock Winter Formal

When: Fri., Feb. 13, 8 p.m. 2015

It’s been a Detroit punk tradition, a night for crust-punks and the spiky set to put on the dog in a royal manner and enjoy performances from some of the city’s loudest, which this year includes Timmy’s Organism, the Bill Bondsmen, Mexican Knives, and more. This, of course, is the final hurrah for the formal, before the Magic Stick finds its new identity as a venue for electronic music, but don’t let that keep you away. If the Punk Rock Winter Formal has taught us anything, punk isn’t in the clothes that you wear, and maybe isn’t even in the music you listen to. Punk rock is in your mind.
