This week on MI Local, I feature punk rock coming out of Detroit, and we take a look around the region for upcoming shows by Eliza Thorp, The High Strung, and the brand-new band The Starlings.

I’ll also dip into summer vibes early with catchy tracks by local artists that could easily become your song of the summer.

See the playlist below and listen to the episode for two weeks after it airs using the media player above.
