Wayne State students, Detroit residents and lovers of the city celebrated, what we would like to call, the official end to summer with Dally in the Alley. Michigan Movement host, and General Manager at WAYN Radio Angelina Czarnecki got the chance to talk to some artist, vendors, and some first time “dalliers” as well as dancing the night away in the alleys of north Cass Corridor.
Dally in the Alley celebrated their 35th year and welcomed many new artist like Detroit rapper SelfSays. Performing at Dally for the first time, concerts in Paris and his musical style were all topics of discussion.
“The vibes (for Dally performance) were good, very positive, more and more people starting filling up the space. I was fortunate enough to play the Forest Stage, I guess that’s the big boy stage, and it was good, people got in to it nice response, and people had fun” shared SelfSays after his performance at Dally in the Alley.
So, we all know that Dally is the place to check out new music and local artist but it is also the hot spot to get some shopping done. Local vendors filled the streets and we got the chance to speak with Steven Bock from the Detroit Bicycle Company. Detroit Bicycle Company vended for the first time this year and appreciated the crowd vibe. Over at Dally they had a great display of bikes, leaving the crowd to take pictures and admire the style all night.
“Dally is a more independent, young crowd, and a good mix of people” Steven Bock Detroit Bicycle Company .
Another year has past but Dally will return and relive the crazy night in the alley.
