Ferndale Area District Library

222 E. Nine Mile Road

Saturday, January 9@ 7 PM / Free


FERNDALE, MI – After a few months of holiday hustles, from preparation, to gift giving and party planning, it’d be an optimal time to let someone else handle the entertainment! Let Ferndale Library get your Saturday night off to a fabulous start with a free concert featuring local acts, Kriss Gaynes and Soft White. The two bands will play in the library on Sat. Jan 9 at 7pm.  Genuine live, loud music inside a library is no longer a novel concept thanks to Start HERE Saturdays!

Kriss Gaynes is a self-described video band, with music just one part of their unique live performances. They project avant-garde film and other images during their sets, which brings a moodiness to their fun, electronic sets.  Soft White is a synthy, shoegazy quartet whose buzzy guitars and spare percussion leave plenty of space for singer Jennifer Bowen’s ethereal vocals. Catch both bands for free on Sat, Jan 9 starting at 7pm.RustBeltAd01

This live showcase started in 2010, an initiative to engage the myriad musicians and bands of SE Michigan’s vibrant music scene and invite them into the library’s space to plug-in and perform their songs as loudly as they like and to then invite the community in, for free, and build their fan base.

It’s always an intriguing experience to watch rock bands react to our unique performance space after they’d gotten used to dimly-lit bar and beer-splashed PA’s. Start HERE Saturdays is the live performance aspect of FADL’s long running Local Music Program, preserving sonic bits of local history with a curated collection of more than 300 albums by Michigan musicians.
