The State Street District is hosting its second annual Rock the District music festival. Building off of the success of the of 2016’s inaugural show, the District is once again providing a completely free concert on the corner of Maynard and East William. A jam-packed line up of live performances, curated by hosted by Sonic Lunch’s Matthew Altruda, includes Theo Katzman, The Go Rounds, Misty Lyn & The Big Beautiful, Chris Dupont and Girls Who Care.
Theo Katzman, of the band Vulfpeck, headlines this night of artists, all of whom have roots in the state of Michigan. As Katzman has appeared in multiple funk shows with his band, he is eager to perform in front of his native Ann Arbor as a solo act to showcase his Rock and Roll sound.
The Kalamazoo quartet, The Go Rounds, have also been a constant in the Michigan music scene over the past 5 years. Their powerful and dynamic live shows have earned them a reputation as one of the best live bands in the Midwest.
In partnership with Ashley’s Downtown, this 5pm-10pm event will feature a beer garden providing cold beverages throughout the night. This Maynard block party serves as the perfect Ann Arbor venue featuring multiple access points and its surrounding of fabulous places to step away and grab a bite to eat.
This amazingly free event, open to all ages, could not be possible without the support of Ann Arbor’s 107one, Bank of Ann Arbor and Nutshell. Ann Arbor’s State Street District is inviting families, students and everyone in between to come out and experience this exciting Saturday night.
