First Stop Friday Coming up July 8th!

First Stop Friday
Please note that July's First Stop Friday is not actually on the first Friday this month. Let's face it, no one is coming to a library show on the Friday before the Fourth of July. So join us for a show on July 8th. Sisters of Your Sunshine Vapor and Phantom Cats will be rocking the library. SOYSV will be doing a special stripped down set.

Summer Concert Series

We're broadening our musical horizons this summer with a summer concert series. We're gonna get some jazz and music for kids in here in addition to our FSF shows. Join us in our (hopefully) sunny courtyard for more free music!

July 11th - The Bridge Project - 16 piece jazz band performing music by contemporary Michigan composers

July 25 - Jeffrey Zook and Bret Hoag - Music for flute and guitar

August 8 - The Candy Band - Four Detroit Moms perform Punk-inspired music for kids

First Stop Friday Recap: Shithouse Yonder and Electric Firebabies

It was another great Friday at the Ferndale Library. Shithouse Yonder played down and dirty punk-inspired rock and Electric Firebabies funked it up with sweet riffs, bombastic percussion and effects-laden vocals. Audiences for both were good especially considering the fact there was about a thousand things to do in town for Pride weekend. The addition of lights made me realize that it's only a matter of time before I start begging the library for funding toward our own set! Enjoy these videos and check out the photos that follow.
