Fri. Oct. 16 and Sat. Oct. 17: PJs Halloween Cover Show #7!

Share on Nextdoor
It's that time of the year, when many Detroit musicians put massive amounts of energy into briefly dressing up and playing songs by one of their favorite bands. Sure, they also do this in other cities, but in my personal experience they do not do it with quite the perfect amount of caring/ not caring as they do in Detroit. You've been to one of these things, so you know what I'm talking about. The PJs event wins for best flyer this year, and the show itself looks super rad; check the lineup in the below text lifted from PJs site — more info on the event here, OK!

DETROIT'S premier Halloweeny Cover Band show is back! Now in its seventh year, the event continues the tradition—local musicians getting together last minute to dress up and perform as their favorite acts with surprising precision—with two big nights of music. As always, expect a wild, uproareous time when you join in on the fun and madness. Topped off with a haunted-house basement record store clerance sale and a spooky dance party!
