While Detroit recently found itself in national bankruptcy, one cannot deny the city’s great influence in music and the automotive world. Celebrating the Motor City’s rich heritage, Levi’s Vintage Clothing presents Boom Town: Detroit in the ’60s, a documentary made by Aaron Rose. Iconic genres like Motown and garage rock first found its footing in Detroit during the ’60s, an evolutionary time when the auto industry was booming. Here, Rose and LVC delve into memorabilia, stringing together archival footage of club nights, live performances and factory visits, while exclusive voice-overs from the likes of Russ Gibb — the owner of garage club Grande Ballroom — and Motown musician Dennis Coffey share their fascinating stories on the legendary era. An insightful short worth your while, check out the video above and share your thoughts below.
