Static Presents...DETROIT ROCKS FOR D.D. BENEFIT


The Zotz

Five Detroit rock bands will perform to help out one of their most ardent fans D.d. Kethman on Friday, July 28 at 8 pm at PJ's Lager House in Detroit.

Join local music scene advocate, dedicated fan, and Motor City Rah Rah, D.d. Kethman in her fight against cancer! D.d. has been a scene supporter and has had an active role in the music scene for many years starting with organizing the original grassroots Fourth Street Fair and volunteering at many cultural events including Concert of Colors, Theatre Bizarre, etc. She was diagnosed with cancer in May and has been undergoing treatment since then. Everyone can use a little help with their finances during this trying time, so the funds raised from this event will help her get back on her feet.

The show will feature performances by the unstoppable rock band White Shag who recently won the award for “Outstanding Alt/Punk Indie Group” at the 2017 Detroit Music Awards. Punk trio The Zotz will perform, along with dark wave rockers Panic or Pain, punk rock by The Dregs and a new band Rocket to Rehab will open the show. The Motor City Rah Rahs will also be there to cheer her on!
