This project started when I was invited to the first show of a new venue
that was opening in Detroit, right across the street from the Opera House.
The place wasn't officially open yet and the stage was in construction
but the owners wanted to get things started. The line up was peculiar.
The first band was an acoustic drum circle called Orizaba,
followed by the DJ Egghead who created electronic beats by spinning records.
An ambient band called Cerebus-Shoal
closed the show. They used everything from guitars to accordions. Struck
by witnessing so many genres being displayed in one night, I decided to
document this space. I wanted to watch this place evolve.
