Alright, team, we’ve made it. It’s May. And while we’re still waiting for the leaves and flowers to pop, we can take comfort in knowing we’re clear of winter’s icy grip.

With that in mind, we’ve decided to welcome the warmth by helping you get ready for Movement 2015 with our second list of Detroit artists you need to see this year. If you missed our first list of artists, be sure to check that out as well.
