What kind of a music scene does Downtown Detroit have at nighttime?

The next time I visit Downtown Detroit, I would like to check out the music scene. What kind of a music scene does Downtown Detroit have and where are the best places to see good music. I am interested in seeing contemporary new age music, classical music, and jazz music. Also, are the places to see good music safe to travel to at nighttime?

There are good hip-hop shows & I’ve been to a rave or 2. I wouldn’t say it’s necessarilly super safe but I do fine there everytime I go. There is a huge free event that lasts for an entire weekend. It’s called D.E.M.F. (Detroit Electronic Music Festival). It’s has a variety of artists (not only electronica) & is fun & safe. You should Google it. It has to be coming up soon.

Where does Blues Music come from?

Blues came out of the cotton fields of the antebellum plantations. The African-American slaves would pass the time in field chants.  Sometimes these chants were also used to pass along information in a type of code that their overseers could not understand.  One person would call or sing out a line and the others would sing or call it back.  Then both would would call out a third different line that would serve to complete the verse. As far as can be told, this was the earliest used of the call and response style know as AAB.  The first caller would call out a line(A).  The line would be repeated or the “response” and and the all would conclude with the last line (B).  The AAB sturcture is the basis of much of the early 23-bqr5 blues.

W. C. Handy is said to be responsible for Blues as we know it today..  It has been reported that one day he heard a man playing and singing some music that was unlike anything he had ever heard before..  He was impressed by the music and copied the style and went on to write the Memphis Blues, The St. Loiuis Blues and many others.
