Headliners for the evening will be The Infatuations on the library steps. A "Detroit Block Party," the second the band's first note hits, the Motor City sound will fill the air. The Infatuations celebrate every sonic movement that is "Detroit" by combining the pop-suss of Motown soul, the sheer in-your-face bravado of Parliament Funkadelic, and the raw, untamed energy of Detroit rock 'n' roll.
