Negative Approach + Tesco Vee's Hate Police + Pissed Jeans + Hellmouth and more

The Michigan punk tradition receives a handsome tribute at this packed bill celebrating the release of two new books: Touch and Go (a compilation of the zine that launched the legendary label) and Why Be Something That You're Not (an oral history of the Detroit scene). At tonight's event, heavyweights from that community—including Negative Approach and Meatmen frontman Tesco Vee—mingle with modern acolytes such as the brilliantly perverse Pissed Jeans.
