Road Trip! Out-of-town shows worth seeing


Dec. 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11 and 12, 2014



The Riviera Theatre

Ok, this listing is printed here basically just to taunt you. Every show of Wilco’s Winterlude 2014, a six-night stand at The Riv, is currently sold out. However, it’s still worth noting that the iconic band will be switching up their set list every night to take fans on a tour through their two-decade’s thick catalog.

Bottom Lounge

Everyone’s favorite tatted up rapper hits The Bottom Lounge for the Slumerican Made Tour, also featuring like-minded artists in Rittz, Big Henry and DJ Klever. He’ll be skipping over Grand Rapids to hit Detroit the next night.

The Fillmore

For 90s rock fans, Christmas will come early. The annual The Night 89X Stole Christmas show this year will feature both Bush and Our Lady of Peace. You Me At Six and Smashing Satellites will also be along for the right. It’s all going down at The Fillmore. Tickets begin at $30.

The Crofoot (Pontiac)

The Fusion Shows crew is a good bunch. It’s a group of buddies that are making a living out of booking pretty rad shows throughout the Mitten. With this show booking prowess, their seventh birthday party promises to be a hit. The show will feature Four Year Strong, Comeback Kid, Handguns, Expire, Narco Debut, Heart to Heart and Lake Effect. Happy Birthday, friends.

The one and only Billy Idol takes over The Fillmore in Detroit on Feb. 6. Wielding his new album Kings & Queens of the Underground, the iconic toe head will look to prove that he hasn’t skipped a beat, even at the age of 58.

Mac’s Bar

Mike Mains & The Branches always seemed like a band destined for the big time. Perhaps still considered a local gem, theses indie rockers have toured with the likes of Relient K and are favorites on the home front. They’ll be hitting the illustrious Mac’s Bar for a holiday-themed show.
