We’re off to LA to spend time with Detroiters who’ve left for sunnier climes. But still Detroiters, because, c’mon, no one ever actually leaves Detroit. And what a journey. With trips to Third Man Records, Graceland, and a charmed conversation in Austin with Philip Bator of Lunch Reads, if this is a start, then we’re off to a great one! That speeding ticket in Texas? Well, we’ll pretend that never happened. 

We present to you here a few songs that sound as good driving down 40 West as they do down I-75 South. 

As for adventure stories, hold tight. They’re coming.
