The 29th Annual Detroit Music Awards will continue, coronavirus be damned, this year switching to a livestream-only event.

Other video performances include those from MC50, the Velvelettes, the Muggs, Gangster Fun, Audio:Birds, Dude, James Simonson Realities, and Audra Kubat.

The awards ceremony will be held at 8 p.m. on Sunday, April 19. It was originally supposed to be held at the Fillmore but switched to an online-only format due to the coronavirus pandemic.
