SingleBarrelDetroit - Launch Party - Friday - 6/26 - Park Bar, Detroit

For the last year or so, creative energies have coalesced north of M-59 - around the vortex of Saginaw and Huron streets in Pontiac - bouncing between the Crofoot, the AC Rich Building, Phonotropic Phridaze - and the ARC. Singlebarreldetroit.com is the brainchild of producers Andy Martin and Jared Groth (ARC Pontiac) - filmmakers, designers, and strong proponents of the metro area arts scene. They bring you: SingleBarrelDetroit(.com)

An ..."homage to Detroit's Music, Architecture and Arts," this Web site is "part urban explorer" and "part filmmaker" - and entirely forger of (artist) community. "The site itself will feature videos of live musical performances by local and national artists in unique locations all around our fair city," so far capturing the following:

The Codgers in Corktown the day of the St. Patrick's Day Parade
Charlene Kaye in the Lee Plaza Hotel
Prussia in the Russell Industrial Center
Aran Ruth in the Detroit Opera House
Rodriguez in the DIA surrounded by the frescoes of Diego Rivera
Daniel Zott in Woodbridge in front of Carl Oxley's murals
Alan Scheurman in the 4th Street neighborhood
Ohtis in the Church of Whispering Byzantium

Official Launch Party and Sneak PreviewFriday June 26, 7PM, FREE at the Park Bar. "Also featured will be photos and journalistic pieces that invite the viewer to interact with the band and the locations indifferent ways. The launch party will take place at the Park Bar, a cornerstone of Detroit's ever growing art community.

The event is free. It will feature musical performances by Alan Scheurman and Daniel Zott, along with a sneak preview of the film work soon to be available on (the site)." SingleBarrelDetroit
