Shifting Gears: Detroit Music Heritage Tour says
DBCxDSC have teamed up to bring you the untold tales in local tunes! Dive deep into Detroit’s music heritage on this 4 hour, mission-driven tour. From Paradise Valley to United Sound Systems, you'll visit historic districts, listen to in-person music storytellers, and reflect on the challenges and opportunities to music preservation in today’s Detroit. We will break out of Detroit’s immediate downtown area and explore music-related spaces in Detroit’s West Side, East Side, Woodward Corridor, North End, New Center, Cass Corridor, and Midtown neighborhoods. plus Highland Park and Hamtramck. It's a whirlwind adventure. After this tour you will not just know more about the bebop history of the Blue Bird Inn and the queer house parties of Detroit’s North End, but we also hope to shift your gears from musical observation to sonic activism, making this tour an essential experience both for savvy visitors and Metro-Detroit cultural allies. Let's rock.

It's the big, orange coffee shop. Stop in, say hi to the owner, Josh, and grab yourself a coffee and a snack. It's delicious.
