The celebrated venue on the outskirts of Detroit will host May, Konrad Black and a collection of local talent next weekend.
After reopening for one night earlier in the year, Motor will host another one-off event—dubbed Motor Revisited—next Saturday, with headlining honors going to Derrick May.
Motor first opened just outside the Detroit city borders in Hamtramck in 1996, and over the next six years it became a clubbing institution. Richie Hawtin, Frankie Bones, Carl Cox and many others graced the decks of the venue, hailed by some as the best in the country, before it was closed in 2002. Apparently, Motor is set to be converted into a grocery store, but construction delays created an opening for a Motor Reunion headlined by Kevin Saunderson back in April, and its current state of limbo has led to another brief re-opening of the club.
May, who played at Motor in its late-'90s heyday, will take over the main room decks, and Berlin-based techno artist Konrad Black will also DJ. Other than Black it's an all-local lineup that includes Gabe Real, John Johr, and Means And Ends, among many others.
