Dally In The Alley 2012 Music Lineup Offers Audiences An Eclectic Soundscape (PHOTOS, VIDEO)

Want to get a pulse on Detroit's music scene? Look no further than the 35th annual Dally in the Alley, which takes place in Detroit's Cass Corridor neighborhood this coming Saturday.

The Dally is a grassroots street fair that has given local musicians a chance to introduce their sounds to Detroit-area audiences since 1982.


Visitors to this year's festival will have the chance to experience nearly 50 artists on four stages (including one dedicated to electronic music). Saturday's set will take the form of an eclectic musical collage, juxtaposing sounds as diverse as funk (Third Coast Kings) and zydeco (Zydeco Hepcats) to electronic (DJ Erno the Inferno), Jazz (El Dee) and "tiki" music (Roland Remington). The lineup will bring together seasoned artists like the world-travelling Tunde Olaniran alongside lesser known, even virtually unknown local acts.
