About Metro Times 

For more than 30 years Metro Times has been Detroit’s premier alternative source for news, arts, culture, music, film, food, fashion and more.

Over 523,000 loyal print and 400,000 digital readers look to us every month to find out what to do, where to go and who to see in and around the Motor City.

Hard-hitting journalism, in-depth profiles of local artists, musicians, and cultural icons — and the area’s most comprehensive club and concert listings — have made MT the most sought after news and entertainment resource for metro Detroiters, ex-pats and other carpetbaggers keen on being plugged in to what drives the city that drives the world.
