What’s red, fed and punk all over?

The Fourth Annual Punk Rock BBQ, baby, who’ll paint Core City red with a barbecue, attitude, and tunes from Detroit’s top raucous subway rocker and angsty weirdos.

Hosted by Stacey McLeod of Dear Darkness, the annual Punk Rock BBQ, previously held at Hamtramck Kelly’s Dive Bar (RIP), will feature performances by Midas, the Cult of SpaceSkull, Timmy’s Organism, Mach, Caveman & Bam Bam, Hail Alien, and more. There will also be 20 vendors, covering a variety of needs, including Remove Records, which does tape compilations of all the PRBBQ groups, then returns the proceeds from the tapes to the groups and Stron Survivorg, which supports survivors of gender-based violence through community and advocacy. Thin. Being a punk has never been so good.

Oh, and also the Cold Truth Ice Cream Truck will be serving up artist-inspired treats. We’ll take a Strawberry Blood Forever from SpaceSkull and a little Lime Slime à la Timmy’s Organism. Participants are encouraged to bring their own grills, chairs, tents, water guns, coolers and anything that will make you feel wet, wild, and ready to shred.

The event will take place from noon to midnight on Saturday August 14 at Core City Park, 4848 Grand River., Detroit; eventbrite.com. Tickets cost $ 20.
