Emily Wells — Passenger
So fortunate to meet and hang out with this amazing woman(and Oly, the cutest pitbull tour buddy) after her show yesterday. An entire table of gear, the stage sprinkled with instruments and a crowd not afraid to dance. She killed it AND covered Juicy.

Welcome to the work week
It’s all about access, right? Thrift for Detroit certainly believes so. I checked out their open house this weekend and was met with the most refreshing sight: young black Detroiters supporting our community.
Founded by the wordsmith, Isaiah Spriggs,Thrift for Detroit collects new and gently used clothing and household items, then plans to host events directly with other nonprofits in the area who support residents in need. Donation bins can be found at Aired Out Customs in Northland Mall, Norah’s Loft Downtown, and The Taco Spot in the African Bead Museum.
As a Howard grad, I’m no stranger to thrifting or nonprofits. But to see them combined for the growth of my hometown and being fueled by talented people of color made my love for this city burn even brighter.
“Yes, there are already thrift stores, but we want to bring a unique thrift experience right to the organizations who need us,” Chantel explained. Student activist, non profit professional , and Thrift for Detroit’s Social Media Manager, Chantel is ready to start a movement.

“Fortune telling on the eve of St. Andrew’s feast day, Detroit, Michigan.
It is believed that on November 30th young girls can use divination to learn about their future husbands by pouring wax or placing pieces of paper in a bowl of water.”
