City Slang: IPO at Paychecks

From Thursday to Saturday, the Detroit leg of the International Pop Overthrow festival takes place at Paychecks in Hamtramck, celebrating the best in (mostly local) pop music.

According to the website, “International Pop Overthrow (or IPO, as it has affectionately become known) is a pop music festival which has been held for the past fourteen years in Los Angeles. We have also held IPO for various years in Chicago, New York, Boston, San Diego, Phoenix, Detroit, Milwaukee, Portland, Seattle, Austin, Dallas, Vancouver, and Toronto, as well as in Liverpool (at the world famous Cavern Club), and London, UK! We are greatly looking forward to all of the IPO shows in 2012!”

Artists appearing at the event include the Outer Vibe, Mumble and Maria Rose & the Swiss Kicks (Thursday), the Romeo Flynns and the Wall Clocks (Friday), the Pounders and the Joint Chiefs of Detroit (Saturday).
