Local and national enthusiasm for Detroit’s hip-hop scene has never been higher. It seems like every week a new Motor City artist has an album that climbs the Apple Music Top 100 chart or appears on a track with a mainstream artist.

Step into “The Tied In 313 Day Concert,” a celebration featuring Detroit’s hip-hop artists. The concert is scheduled for March 13 (313, included?) at the Garden Theater.

Concert organizer, producer and curator Chanel Domonique said the show “was born out of a desire to truly showcase and showcase our most beloved and decorated performers.” While past 313 Day celebrations focused on Detroit businesses, Domonique says she wanted to showcase her artists. “Given the current climate of Detroit’s entertainment industry, its undeniable excitement and national recognition, it was almost impossible not to focus on the talented individuals in Detroit, all of whom have worked day and night to be properly recognized in the music industry,” she says.

Comedian Ha Ha Davis and Detroit influencer Justin Floyd will host an evening that will see performances from Kash Doll, Peezy, Baby Money, Tay B, Payroll Giovanni, Babyface Ray, Front Paije, Skilla Baby, Pretty Brayah, Jugg Harden and more artists yet to be named.

“313 day is important to me because it shows the growth of Detroit’s music scene,” says Payroll Giovanni, who rose to prominence through underground rap group Doughboyz Cashout. “We used to pay artists to let us open to them and our sound wasn’t accepted by the masses. Now we do our own shows and we have different fanbases who come from all over the world to see us.

Domonique says she also carefully selected Detroit-based businesses that she felt positively represented the community to be part of the event. Active Minds, AFLN Clothing and cannabis grower Viola Brands are all sponsors and help make this concert happen, and Shell Shock’d Tacos will be on hand to serve food.

“Since 2019, we have really tried to integrate ourselves into the community,” says Al Harrington, former NBA player and CEO of Viola Brands. “We’ve had turkey drives and coat drives, but this is the first real event we’ve been able to hold due to COVID.”

Dominique adds, “Everyone involved in this show from east to west is connected to the city of Detroit and represents 313.”

The Tied in 313 Day concert is at 7 p.m. on Sunday, March 13 at the Garden Theater; 3929 Woodward Avenue, Detroit; 313-832-0888; thegardendetroit.com. Tickets start at $55.
