Ypsilanti Social & Organizing Center Benefit

. February 29, 2020.

The General Defense Committee (GDC), along with other community organizations, is working towards converting a restaurant on Ecorse Rd. in Ypsilanti into a multi-purpose, Community Center and Union Hall with a plan to engage members of the community and to create a place where people can come together. The group’s mission — “Anything that fosters strong community involvement and projects to defend and promote the world we want to see.”

The GDC benefit concert, to raise funds and awareness about the project, will be held at Ziggy’s in Ypsilanti, with the progressive punk vibes of Trux Valux followed by the thrash hardcore sounds of Homunculus. MC Kadence will also lay down some fresh rhymes. Scissor Now will end the night with their eclectic jazz, funk, punk insanity.
