From the current issue of Metro Times, the annual Best of Detroit issue. I've never seen mention of this on the Forum. Anybody know anything about it? Or am I just losing what's left of my sight and mind?

Best place to be soulfully Northern
The Comet Bar
128 Henry St., Detroit
313-964-1508

Every Saturday night the musical scholars of The Golden Worm 45 Club transport the already time-warped Comet Bar back to the Soul Era. This rotating group of DJs eschews obvious hits, opting instead to focus on Detroit’s rich history of smaller labels that tried to compete with Motown. The local angle isn’t exclusive, with each DJ adding varying degrees of Northern Soul, Funk, and raw ’60s R&B. But the heart of the night is always in Detroit. Dancing is encouraged and, well, how could you not? Fittingly, the Comet Bar is located right up the street from Motown Records’ old headquarters on Woodward Avenue, and on a good night you can stand outside the abandoned building and hear The Golden Worm 45 Club echoing memories to it.
