We’d like to think that you don’t believe anything everything you hear on the news. Detroit – as it’s painted in the media – is nothing but ruin porn (interviewees words, not ours). But just like the whole Jeff Goldblum thing, we were lied to… kind of. Sure, Detroit is filled with abandoned buildings, lacking in people, and a bunch of other bad shit – but that’s not all that’s going on. People from our generation are redefining the city in much the same way that the city was built in the first place. Artists, DJs, producers, and other entrepreneurs are rebuilding Detroit from the ground up and Palladium Boots got a sneak peek with help from everyone’s favorite jackass Johnny Knoxville. Detroit Lives (click here to watch the flick in its entirety) is Palladium’s exploration into the current state of things in Detroit.
