Dorkwave 2 Death: Detroit Nightlife Lineage

Haute to Death is one of the hottest monthly parties in Detroit. After seven years, it’s basically a nightlife institution. But it wouldn’t exist had it not been for the massively popular Dorkwave parties, led by a collective of friends and DJs, who rules the scene for over a decade.

This weekend, they combine forces to create Dorkwave to Death.

Haute to Death is the team of Ash Nowak and Jon Dones. They talk about their inspiration to start a monthy party with Mark Lazar, co-founder of Dorkwave.  We listen to music from The Juan Maclean, New Order, and Adult.
