Concert Preview: Secret Friends Fest 2016January 4, 2016
Way back when UBL was just getting its start, we attended a show that kind of gave us our first glimpse into the budding Detroit music scene. The first annual Secret Friends Fest’s roster was filled with many up and coming bands mostly from right here in the mitten state. In just...
Jessica’s Favorite Performances of 2015December 28, 2015
2015 was not an easy year which means that UBL took a backseat. I reviewed a lot less albums and attended half as many shows as last year. While I missed some concerts that I would have loved to see, I did get to see a lot of bands that have been on my concert bucket...
Concert Review: Young Rival and Born RuffiansDecember 7, 2015
December 2, 2015: The Loving Touch, Ferndale
I’ve been a Born Ruffian since I first heard “Little Garçon” off their album Red, Yellow & Blue back around 2008 but it wasn’t until the release of their 2013 album, Birthmarks, that Born Ruffians really sank their hooks into me. I listened to the album non-stop and still find myself revisiting...
Album Review: Flint Eastwood – Small Victories EPNovember 2, 2015
If you’ve been following us here at UBL at all, you know that one of our favorite bands out there right now is Detroit’s own Flint Eastwood. The band will always have a special place in our hearts as one of the first bands we reviewed and still continues to be one of the...
Concert Review: Tanner Merritt, Andy Hull, and Dustin KensrueApril 27, 2015

Single Review: Tart – Rabid DogsNovember 17, 2014
Back when we were first starting out here at Under Bright Lights, we hit the Secret Friends Fest where we got to discover so many talented Michigan bands. The first band on that night was Tart, a two-piece out of Detroit...
Metro Times Blowout 17 Review Part III: Motion City SoundtrackMay 20, 2014
While my desire to be there for every band that played on my second MTB night was strong, I still couldn’t get myself out before Motion City Soundtrack took the stage at The Loving Touch in Ferndale. It was part exhaustion from the night before, part getting over a cold, and just...
Concert Review: DL Rossi, Mike Mains & the Branches, The Hounds Below, and Flint EastwoodJanuary 20, 2014
January 18, 2014: The Loving Touch, Ferndale, Michigan
Another fantastic evening spent with great local music at The Loving Touch.
First up was DL Rossi, which was the only act I didn’t get a chance to check out before the show. His Guitar driven anthems about breakups, religion,...
