Wild live shows, including vomit, chickens, fire and some decidedly distasteful nudity have given the Black Lips a reputation for being a must-see band. While they maintain the rawness that has always been present in their sound, their new album has a greasier sheen to it that gives the band even more flamboyance. Natural Child and Duane: The Brand New Dog will open the show.

                                                                                              Take a nine-piece band from Brooklyn, a raspy lead-singer from Ghana and the sounds of punk, jazz and swing, and you get a hybrid of sounds that can only be described as a cohesive mess. The formula works for Osekre & the Lucky Bastards, a band that has been described by New York radio station WBAI as “the new Fela.” This band is unlike anything that has come before it and might just be the start of a musical revolution that you surely don’t want to miss. What’s more, they’re stopping in Detroit for a free show.

With roots embedded in jazz, soul, rock, and traditional Greek music, the ASQ has formed a unique, soulful sound. Individual members have performed with local and world renown bands/artists.

                                                                                              The first DMAs were held in 1992, and since their inception, they’ve featured some of Detroit’s most notable artists onstage, including such national acts as Eminem, Kid Rock, Martha Reeves, Ted Nugent, Smokey Robinson and Insane Clown Posse. However, regional performers make up the majority of talented nominees, and the 2014 award season looks exciting with a promising list of performers in categories that range from industrial to R&B.

Call it art rock, call it no wave, call it indie prog, call it whatever — with every release the band attempts to sound completely different, and in that inconsistency they are nothing if not consistent (hell, the band is notorious for sounding completely different at the end of a song than they did at the begining). It’s fun, yet difficult stuff — right at home in an art museum.

The event starts by teasing the palate with a firkin happy hour, which will include three 4-ounce servings of custom brews made exclusively for the event. Following that will be an optional tour of the Joe and a five-course gourmet meal with beer pairings. In addition, MotorCity Casino Hotel is offering a special rate with complimentary transportation to and from the event.

This year’s Stars on Ice performance will feature Davis and White, alongside the inaugural Olympic figure skating team, in a star-studded show of spectacular, world-class figure skating.

Wild live shows, including vomit, chickens, fire and some decidedly distasteful nudity have given the Black Lips a reputation for being a must-see band. While they maintain the rawness that has always been present in their sound, their new album has a greasier sheen to it that gives the band even more flamboyance. Natural Child and Duane: The Brand New Dog will open the show.

The formula works for Osekre & the Lucky Bastards, a band that has been described by New York radio station WBAI as “the new Fela.” This band is unlike anything that has come before it and might just be the start of a musical revolution that you surely don’t want to miss. What’s more, they’re stopping in Detroit for a free show.

However, regional performers make up the majority of talented nominees, and the 2014 award season looks exciting with a promising list of performers in categories that range from industrial to R&B.

Call it art rock, call it no wave, call it indie prog, call it whatever — with every release the band attempts to sound completely different, and in that inconsistency they are nothing if not consistent (hell, the band is notorious for sounding completely different at the end of a song than they did at the begining). It’s fun, yet difficult stuff — right at home in an art museum.
