Micheline Maynard, who usually covers about auto industry and other biz, today tells Final Four visitors and others where "live music endures in the Motor City."
St. Andrew’s Hall, New Dodge Lounge, Magic Bag, Baker's and Cliff Bell's ("As close to a Manhattan jazz spot as anything in the city") all get shout-outs here.
But before noting that "Detroit's music scene stretches beyond downtown" -- and includes The Ark, in her geographically broad definition -- Micheline dangles this red meat sure to feed DY debate:
quote:So there you go . . .
The Stick is the center of the Detroit club universe.
. . . have at it!

I assume she means the Magic Stick, which is definitely my favorite place to see a show.

Yes, the Magic Stick does seem to be the current center of what's happening.

Good article, and she's not off-base regarding the Stick.

that was a good article. usually bands i want to see play at other venues that weren't mentioned, but you can't list everything in an article and it covers a nice variety.
the stick is in some ways a center and i do like to go there sometimes, but it seems like since greg stopped booking the shows a year or two ago the quality has gone down a bit.

I'd like to also add Small's in Hamtramck. That place has great prices and good sound. Great venue for small punk/indie shows.
