Thank you for considering a career at Five15 Media, Mojo, and More, the new independent book, record, and gift store with a Left Bank feel. Five15 disproves the much parroted line that indie bookstores are DOA in the 21st century. The address might say Washington Ave., but the vibe is more Greenwich Village or Haight‐Ashbury wired for today’s generation.
This store, the brainchild of Gary Baglio, will saturate itself in the liberating impulses of the ‘60s yet surround patrons with the innovations of our generation. Interesting things are happening in the arts and popular culture and the store will be a real counterculture of what’s happening in Detroit right now. Indeed, the store’s aesthetic reflects the owner’s sensibilities while its state of the art technologies are geared for today’s pulse.
“We will have the most eye‐popping, thought‐provoking, funny‐bone ticklin’ merchandise around‐ literature, music, and gifts that people don’t see at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon.com,” Baglio said. “I personally feel that Detroit has needed a place like this for a long time.”
The Detroit underground scene will be galvanized by this new indie store with avant‐garde roots. Does this store reflect your thinking? If so, please fill out the attached application because we want to show you Five15’s potential in becoming the most exciting commercial space in Metro Detroit – where a real scene can emerge and come together. With your help, Five15 will work as a hub for artists; a creative clubhouse where people can see and feel our aesthetic. Please join us.
