Friday, July 11 and Saturday, July 12 / Historic Depot Town

The Chicago Tribune calls it “one of the best music festivals in the Midwest,” so you’d better believe it will be an old-school rockabilly party. This annual event will bring over ten national Elvis tribute acts, as well as house band The Change of Habit (from Chicago, no less) to Depot Town for one weekend to remind us all of the power of the pelvis. Elvis’s music remains an important cornerstone in the history of pop and rock—this fest will mark a great opportunity to explore his work. Hail to the king!  Sets throughout the day both days.

$13 Friday, $22 Saturday, $30 both days. Depot Town, Ypsilanti.
