Over the last two years or so, a Rap Renaissance has been rumbling in the heart of Detroit. 

Next weekend, the Renaissance comes to Ann Arbor. The #CoOwnaz collective features a range of emcees, each blessed and blemished with their own blue-collar weirdness and disarmingly erudite penmanship. The group’s membership is slightly amorphous and their headquarters are only loosely identified as a loft in Eastern Market, but nevertheless, some of its most talented clientele are roadtripping together, like a traveling revue ala Motown’s caravan of recording artists back in the 60’s, over to the Blind Pig, to help send off on a European tour one of their most industrious comrades, Dante LaSalle.

That said… Let’s have a sampling of songs:
Dante LaSalle: “Mr. Merriweather Hustle Anthem”

Doc Waffles: “Hockey Fights”

Sleepless Inn: “Escalators”

#CoOwnaz at The Blind Pig – September 18th – 9:30 pm

Featuring:
Charles Trees
Eddie Logix
Jaws That Bite
Dante LaSalle
Doc Waffles 
Sleepless Inn

Grove Studios Update

Local musician Rick Coughlin founded Grove Studios in late 2016 with the goal of establishing it as a community space for musicians—by musicians! The Grove team’s idea, with an architectural vision of Breck Crandell, was for a compound of individual artists’ rehearsal spaces comprised of a fleet of shipping containers. Coughlin’s efforts have been aided by the
