- Gorillaz play Detroit’s Fox Theatre (Sept. 18): Your jaw will drop for three reasons: the gorgeous backdrop art, the live renditions of international favorites, and the soul-shaking finale.
- Gogol Bordello at Royal Oak Theater (Sept. 26) and Grand Rapids’ The Intersection (Sept. 27): A show that promises to leave you smiling and possibly dancing some blend of jig-line dance-mosh pit.
- Moon Hooch at The Stache (Sept. 27): If you love brass instruments and live re-mixings of songs, don’t miss this jam band’s stop in Grand Rapids. Tickets are cheap!
- Glass Animals at Royal Oak Music Theatre (Sept. 29): Their focus on the personal in their album “How to Be a Human Being” promises a profoundly intimate experience with the crowd at this show.
