Join Golf Clap This Weekend for Some Outdoor Shows

As the quarantine starts to loosen up a little, venues chomp at the bit to reopen their doors, and I'm sure most of us are eager to walk through them again. This Friday and Saturday, Tangent Gallery and the Aretha Lake Lounge, along with Golf Clap, will be hosting a pair of mask-mandatory outdoor shows, and putting a portion of their profits towards Detroit Heals Detroit. Capacity, and therefore tickets, will be limited, so don't miss the chance to grab yours.

Golf Clap Weekender: July 17-18th, 2020

Support Tangent Gallery

With everything that's going on lately, bills can seem like a looming problem for a lot of us. Unfortunately, the same can be said for some of our favorite venues. All of us who are able should try to pitch in a bit and do our best to support our community.

The Lost Art of Deep Listening

One of my favorite things to do when I've got some time to myself is to sit back and lose myself in some music. As this LA Times article suggests, taking the time to really take a look at that new album from your favorite lyricist, or maybe an old jam, could be a good way to kill time while you're stuck at home.

Choose an album. Lose the phone. Close your eyes.

12 Hours of Spiritual Jazz

If you're stuck inside this week, check out this 12 hour spiritual jazz mix from NTS Radio to help put a little swing back into your step.
