Every other Sunday this summer, music lovers can amble down The Belt (a refurbished alley and mini commercial district located downtown near Library Park), and find a lineup of bands at The Skip, a bar that’s partnered with Fanic Music to feature a curated schedule of local artists on display in the open air for matinee performances.
Detroit-based Fanic Music is a digital app and desktop platform dedicated to supporting the independent music community by connecting artists with other artists, talent buyers, concert promoters and music fans in order to assist in artist scalability and increase the potential of exposure. But their collaboration with The Belt is special because it creates an opportunity for residents to better acquaint themselves with the burgeoning talents that have taken root and really started to blossom right here in the city.
“All we’re aiming to do, and will continue to do, is create a platform that allows us to support, interact, and engage with that audience," said Waref Hawasli, co-founder and CEO of Fanic Music. "We wanted to provide artists an opportunity to perform and create in this unique space.”
Live & Raw’s second season kicks-off Sunday, with Fanic Music Radio streaming in The Belt seven-days a week from 10am-10pm, playing only
Michiganbased independent artists.
