Sponge Headline Metro 37’s Christmas Party at The Ritz on Dec. 12
Public Invited to Enjoy live Rock; Recording Studio Time Giveaways
Metro 37 Recording Studios host their 8th annual Christmas Party
at The Ritz (24300 Hoover Rd, Warren, MI) on Saturday December 12 at 7 p.m.
Hometown hit-makers Sponge headline the show, which is open to the public, ages 18 and over.
Tickets are $12 in advance, and $15 on the day of the show, and now available via etix.com or at the venue.
In addition to Sponge, the party includes a rare reunion by Ann Arbor based melodic alternative rockers Solid Frog (featuring Sponge’s Kyle Neely and Andy Patalan) in addition to live music by area bands One Block South, Most Wanted and Sixe.
Hailing from Detroit, Sponge gained widespread notoriety with their debut album "Rotting Piñata,” released in August 1994. Hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)" fueled massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV in the late 90's. After "Rotting Piñata" went Gold, the band toured internationally, and followed up with the critically lauded CD “Wax Ecstatic,” garnering additional hits "Wax Ecstatic" and "Have You Seen Mary?” Sponge will have copies of their latest CDs “Rotting Alive,” and “Deep Cuts Live,” plus limited edition T-shirts for sale at the show.
It’s an honor to have Sponge perform at our party. They were one of the bands that inspired me to do what I do,” says Metro 37 co-owner Kevin Sharpe. Sharpe, along with co-owner Matt Dalton will be on hand giving away $100 recording studio gift certificates throughout the night to partygoers.
Opening in 2006, Metro 37 has recorded thousands of local and national acts at their Rochester Hills based, full service sound engineering, mixing and mastering facility. Metro 37 combines modern recording techniques with the best vintage gear and state of the art equipment.
2015 has been a particularly a stellar year for Metro 37 - with rapper Big Sean, U.K. rock duo Royal Blood, Metal heads Miss May I and Born of Osiris, seminal ska-punks The Suicide Machines, members of Fall Out Boy, and chart busting country artist Alan Turner among the many high profile artists dropping in to record tracks.
Don’t miss what’s sure to be a great party celebrating live music in Metro Detroit!
