Staff Infection: Live and Local

It's time to reveal my true identity, dear readers. I am a local music lover stationed in Detroit, MI. I also work at a library, where I fill the shelves with music of all kinds, including local bands. I love seeing bands live, and in a town like the Motor City, there's local music to be heard every night of the week. Here's a sampling of D-Town bands I love. Give them a listen and maybe they'll be the new White Stripes, Bob Seger or Iggy Pop in your life.

Marco Polio and the New Vaccines - "The Supernatural" - Video

Big Mess - "Favors"

Drunken Barn Dance - "The Last Desperate Stand Of The Last Fair Man" from Grey Buried

I'd actually like to suggest that you buy this whole album because it's amazing.

Friendly Foes - "Batteries and Magazines" from Liz, Ryan & Sean - click that link for the whole EP for FREE

Fur - "Pretty Thoughts" from Self-Titled EP

Each Monday a different Green Light Go staff member will let you in on what songs have infected their ears for the week, while giving you the opportunity to share in the experience yourself.

This week: Kelly Bennett, Publicity Assistant
