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 presents Boom Town: Detroit in the 60s, a documentary made by Aaron Rose. Iconic genres like Motown and garage rock first found their footing in Detroit during the ’60s, an evolutionary time when the auto industry was booming. Here, Rose and Levi’s 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 in our comment section. Enjoy.
