(FPL Press Release, April 28, 2013)

The Ferndale Public Library has joined forces with Metro Times for this year’s revamped Metro Times Blowout. The library, which hosts a monthly rock concert series, will serve as one of ten Ferndale venues featuring music by local artists May 2-4. The Friends of the Ferndale Library will be selling beverages, including beer, as a fund-raiser for the library’s programs, materials and special events. Attendees will need to purchase wristbands in order to enter the library for the event.  Attendees can purchase a wristband for the Ferndale weekend for $20 or pay $35 for entry into both the Hamtramck weekend (Apr. 25 -27) and the Ferndale weekend.

“When my co-worker, Jeff Milo proposed that we get involved with Blowout this year,” said Kelly Bennett, who runs the library’s First Stop Friday concert series, “I knew we had to do it. Blowout is an institution of the Detroit music scene and to expose the library to that kind of traffic and attention will be great for us.”
