Detroit Klutch | Friday, February 1, 7pm
Genres: country rock, blues
Suggested donation $10
We had a great time with Detroit Klutch at the end of the summer and are excited to share their bluesy country rock music at this month’s Rent Party.
On the side, we met Detroit Klutch’s female vocalist Robin Renee at an Evan Abood gig. They are cousins and obviously share an important music gene.
WHAT IS A RENT PARTY? At the time of the Great Migration north (1910-1930), blacks emigrating from the south settled the problem of Harlem’s inflated rents by throwing parties. Furniture was moved to the outside walls, musicians and refreshments were brought in, card tables were set up out of the way of the dance floor, and the doors were opened in exchange for a few bucks.
In an effort to relieve stress on our monthly budget, the Pomerene Center has adopted/adapted the Rent Party to help meet our monthly gas bill. YES! We open our doors at 7:00pm on First Friday evenings, October-April and present great acoustic music– great times (especially if you bring your friends!) –and great food $3 per plate. Suggested donation $10 at the door.
