Welcome to “Milo Minute,” the 60 seconds (or thereabouts) you need to find a local show or fest to attend this weekend. And we mean ‘local.’

Longtime Detroit music journalist Jeff Milo has been plugging ears into the Detroit scene for years with his prolific Deep Cutz blog and his YouTube series, “The Milo Show.” Here, he gives us his rundown for what music to catch this weekend that isn’t… uh… playing Little Caesars Arena if you catch our vibe.

Patrice Scott and Tammy Lakkis at TV Lounge

What: TV Lounge consistently showcases some of the best in local hip-hop, electronica, house and techno. Patrice Scott headlines this night produced by the labels Detroit Vinyl Room and My Baby Records. Scott is an esteemed Detroit-based producer of techno and deep house, an innovative and dynamic club DJ who drew inspiration from legends like the Belleville Three and the Electrifying Mojo. Scott released his debut in 2015, called Euphonium, and has his own imprint, which is Sistrum Recordings. Joining Patrice Scott is the young, up-and-coming DJ and electronic music artist Tammy Lakkis, who put out one of my favorite songs of last year, something I spun constantly, a track called “This Is How It Goes.”

Sounds like: Tammy Lakkis “This Is How It Goes
