Metro Times Blowout 16 “Hangin’ with Navdo” Showcase
curated by Navdo with Blaring Division and Strike Team Agency
Friday May 3rd 2013
Navdo Presents brings boutique, high-caliber production values to May 3rd’s “Hangin’ With Navdo” Metro Times Blowout Showcase at the Rustbelt Market in Ferndale (8pm showtime). “Hangin’ With Navdo“‘s celebration and elevation of fresh, “new” Detroit is headlined by Jessica Hernandez and The Deltas, with their signature of gothic, funky, soulful, confident rock and roll woven around Hernandez’ steamy powerhouse voice. J. Walker & The Crossguards salute the most storied Motor City Rock guitar legacy sounds while weaving together smoky, bluesy riffs that are all 2013. For those who can’t get enough of Sigur Ros and Spiritualized’s resurgence this summer, there is Electric Lion Soundwave Experiment’s shoegazing space rock. Almost Free blaze proudly through prog-alt rock hooks, new wave grungy guitar sounds that give way to positively bright summer anthems. New wave and space rock lead effortlessly into the electronic rock production of Manic Moves and Ex American (think Tanlines, Deerhoof, Chairlift, Tame Impala).
“Hangin’ With Navdo” is what Detroit is today; a commitment to our star local artists; recognition that young Detroit has the talent, passion, energy, and rainbow of flavors to set fire on a platform right alongside the best of Brooklyn, California, Atlanta, Nashville, and all our music city counterparts. May 3 defines Navdo’s mantra that brilliant Detroit artists should always be presented with the highest of technical production values, community support and involvement, and respect to each unique artistic style. Come hang with these 6 artists. The next time you see any of them, the stage will be that much bigger.
