Bringing Back The Fifties

Two good things about the 1950′s bobby-socks era — drive-in movie theatres and independent radio stations. It’s time to bring it back.

Park your T-Bird and your steady at the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit on Wednesday evening for an evening of live-radio, Detroit-style, in the museum’s Woodward Ave. parking lot.

Instead of mooning over the voice of your favorite DJ with the lights down low, watch and listen as some of the Motor City’s most creative musical maniacs recreate the aural sensation of the radio hour. Performance art group The Hinterlands will deliver a spooky re-creation of the 1930s sci-fi horror broadcast. Shadow puppets, boomin’ hip-hop, freestyle break-dancing, Duane & the Teenage Jinks … just a few reasons to roll down your windows and enjoy the first flirtation of summertime.

What: Drive-in Radio Theater hosted and curated by The Hinterland Ensemble. Admission is $5 a car.
Where: Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit at 4454 Woodward in Midtown Detroit.
When: Wednesday, March 28, 7 to 9 p.m. Shows begin ever 20 minutes. Come for one or stay for all.
