Detroit Show Tracker Showstopper

Apr. 2014 Detroit Show Tracker: St. Vincent, DEJJ, The Hold Steady & more

1957780_10152228612270661_716020917_oShows on, shows on, on shows are coming through Metro Detroit this month. Unfortunately, some of the best acts stopping by SE Michigan are SOLD OUT. I’d suggest you find other avenues and join me at St. Vincent and Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr.

There are plenty of other great options though. The Hold Steady get back to business at The Crofoot with great opener Deer Tick, ATL’s Black Lips are sure to bring a ruckus at the Magic Stick and M.I.A. and A$AP Ferg turn up The Jack White Theater at Masonic Temple. I’m actually surprised M.I.A. is returning so soon after hitting Royal Oak Music Theatre last Summer, but I’m not complaining. Saturday’s London Grammar show at the Shelter might be your last opportunity to see the buzzworthy band behind “Hey Now” at such an intimate venue.
