Kiss won't be around, but "Detroit Rock City" will be the star of the afternoon on Saturday, Aug. 17, at UHF Records in Royal Oak.

Michigan music journalist Steve Miller, former editor of the Touch and Go punk fanzine, will be in town to sign copies of his new book "Detroit Rock City: The Uncensored History of Rock 'n' Roll in America's Loudest City." The oral history features interviews with musicians, promoters, scenesters, club owners and other figures in the Motor City music scene from the mid-60s through the 2000s, offering a compact look at five decades of notable events and achievements. The 312-page paperback also features 16 pages of rarely seen archival photos.

Miller will be joined by Tesco Vee, another Michigan writer, who's compiled "Touch and Go: The Complete Hardcore Punk 'Zine '79083." The event begins at 2 p.m. UHF is located at 512 S. Washington Ave. Call 248-545-5955. or visit www.uhfmusic.com.
