Maci Delaghetto

Fri., Aug. 29, 9:30 p.m.
phone 248-599-2212

MT had a chance to interview Maci Delaghetto a few weeks back, and the young DJ was quick to say that she’s received a lot of criticism since stepping on the techno scene for being an up-and-comer and a working model. Her first performance was at Elektricity three years ago, and she’s had a residency there ever since, adding that she likes to showcase music her audience has never heard before. See this DJ do her thing with after catching show openers Dopeadelic, Trill Clinton, and Cameron Oakley. Fun Fakt, Food Fight, and Ruxxpin will spin on the patio. Get in free with RSVP before 11. (18+) $7.50
