    Northern Soul Night at MOCAD - Sat. Nite March 26

    Hi all, just spotted this event. Hadn't heard the term "Northern Soul" in quite a while. For those not from Detroit MOCAD = Museum of Contemporary Arts Detroit, located on Woodward a few blocks south of Wayne State and The Detroit Institute of Arts.

    Northern Soul Night with Brad Hales + Mr. Fine Wine
    Saturday, March 26, 2016 at 9pm
    Admission: $5 [[free for members)

    Dance 'til you drop at MOCAD's sensational soul stomp! Brad Hales, a Detroit–raised legend of the American funk and soul 45 scene meets up with hometown hero and host of WFMU’s Downtown Soulville Mr. Fine Wine to play Northern Soul obscurities all night. Northern Soul is a music and dance movement that emerged in Northern England, the English Midlands, Scotland and Wales in the late 1960s independent from the British mod scene. Northern Soul mainly consists of a particular style based on the heavy beat and fast tempo of Black American Soul music and the mid-1960s Tamla Motown sound. The Northern Soul movement, however, generally eschews Motown or Motown-influenced music that has had significant mainstream commercial success. The recordings most prized by enthusiasts of the genre are usually by lesser-known artists, released only in limited numbers, often by small regional American labels such as Detroit’s own Ric-Tic and Golden World Records.
