GARAGE: A ROCK SAGA

Friday, December 9 at Planet Ant Hall
$2 suggested donation.


Brew & View cinema is coming to Planet Ant Hall! Come see some classic movies while enjoying a few cold brews. First off, it's the Planet Ant produced musical comedy GARAGE: A Rock Saga.

The Ghost Light Hamtramck (our adjoining bar) will be open at 7pm and serving drinks all night. The movie will start in Ant Hall at 9pm.

GARAGE: A Rock Saga

Based on the stage play of the same name, GARAGE follows a four-member rock band formed following the death of Frank's (Joshua Funk) father. Catching up with the band every five years--as they assume a different musical trend from 70s disco to 90s grunge--the band goes through highs and lows as members come and go, each struggling to find their individual identity and their identity as a rock band.

Mikey Brown

Duende Record Release Party

 

Saturday, December 10th  at Planet Ant Hall
Doors 8pm | Show 9:30pm

$10 cover gets you in, plus the 45 in your hand along with 5 bands

This 45 single release with Hold Fast commemorates DUENDE!’s tenth anniversary performing live rock-n-roll to and fro the four points of the compass; the West (Austin), the South (New Orleans), the East (New York City), and the Great White North (Canada) while keeping their footing firmly in Detroit.

“Dance Party” was one of the first songs written by the band and has been a staple of the live set over their decade reign on the killing floor. Originally recorded in basement sessions, released CD only in 2007, you’ve never heard it until now on this limited vinyl only release. The band re-recorded the track along with its exclusive B-Side, “Keep It Cool”, in January 2016 with legendary sound engineer Jim Diamond at The Tempermill in Ferndale, MI.

The band invited some very special guests for the get down.
