Detroit’s Electronic Community Comes Together For Flint

Posted in Events, Features

Detroit’s House and Techno community is coming together in an unprecedented show of solidarity to raise funds and provide water for the neighboring city of Flint, MI.

The event, aptly titled “Detroit House & Techno All Stars In Support of Flint: Something In The Water (Does Not Compute),” takes place this Friday at Detroit hotspot TV Lounge.

The lineup is stacked with some of Detroit’s (and electronic music’s) finest, including Moodymann, Minx, Detroit Techno Militia, D. Wynn, Kevin Reynolds and a host of other equally stunning artists. Famed poet Jessica Care Moore will perform and Kevin Saunderson, one of the originators of Techno will guest bartend(!). Detroit event producer and cultural ambassador Adriel Fantastique! serves as the host/mc for the night.

The amazing coalition of promoters, DJs and others (Minimal Detroit’s Terrence Dixon designed the flyer images) came together at the request of Buzz Goree (Submerge/Mixworks) who was moved to do something to support the people of Flint after seeing the news reports in… Berlin. For the past two years, the people have been effectively poisoned by lead leeching into the water supply. This happened under the supervision of a state-appointed “Emergency Manager,” which many in the state view as direct negligence by the state government.


Proceeds from the event will go to the Flint Child Health and Development Fund (www.flintkids.org) and the purchase of bottled water. Resale tickets are available at https://www.wantickets.com/Events/201011/Something-In-The-Water-Does-Not-compute/
