BRUNCH + PARTY IN CAFÉ 78
THIS MORNING A DJ SAVED MY LIFE: POINT OF INFLUENCE
DELANO SMITH + BANDHU GARDENS
Sunday, September 29, 11am–5pm
Of the original crop of Detroit DJs, Delano Smith is one of the few still dedicated to the craft. Reflecting on house and techno without his influence would reveal a very different musical landscape today. Coming up when the world was just discovering the impact a DJ could have, Delano traversed his way to the top in a tough scene full of talent. Bandhu Gardens celebrates the existing gardening and culinary talents of Bangladeshi women living in Detroit while working together to amplify and expand economic opportunities.
These daytime parties feature great music, food, cocktails, art, and coffee all in one place. A changing roster of DJs perform sets that take us from their point of influence through a musical trajectory that leads to their current musical outlook while some of Detroit’s most deliciously interesting culinary pop-ups provide breakfast worth getting out of bed for.
