This is history in the making. Ladies and gents, this, the inaugural Motor City Punk Rock Swap Meat, has all the makings of a Detroit mainstay: Coney dogs, a Richard Bowser DJ set, a bevy of local artists, an acoustic set by Break Anchor — I mean, come on, what else do you want?

Gwar

phone 734-787-2157

Gwar fans are expected to flock to Harpos to pay homage to late frontman Dave Brockie (“Oderus Urungus”), who died earlier this year of a heroin overdose. The ol’ scumdog will be there in spirit, so it’s OK to mosh — just make sure you mosh responsibly (if there is such a thing). $20

Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr.

Sat., Nov. 22, 7 p.m.
phone 248-858-9333

Under any other circumstances, we wouldn’t condone such a name. But since their band makes some of the most gloriously awesome indie/alternative pop and they’re a couple of our fellow Detroiters, we’ll give them a pass. Catch them on the tail end of their fall tour as they hit the Crofoot on both Saturday and Sunday. Their concerts are energetic, full of good vibes, and just plain fun. $18.50 ADV - $20 DOS

New Politics

Sat., Nov. 22, 7 p.m.
phone 313-961-8961

Europeans know how to make feel-good, club-friendly music, and we hate to make generalizations like this, but come on, it’s true! Nevertheless, European or not, this alt-rock trio knows how to make good music, as evidenced by their hit single “Harlem,” which begs for some booty-shaking. Last time the band was here, they performed inside the Shelter, so they’re clearly moving up in the world. Check them out at St. Andrew’s on Saturday. It’ll be a great time, we promise! $29

Chris Tucker

Sat., Nov. 22, 8 p.m.
phone 800-745-3000

Honestly, we’re partial to dramatic-role Chris Tucker, but we like the comedic-relief Chris Tucker from Rush Hour, Friday, and The Fifth Element. Saturday at the Fox, we’re sure that it’s going to be more of the Chris Tucker that we’ve come to love. And you know this, maaan! $45.50 - $75.50

Detroit, the time has come to once again support your own. Miss Kelly Campos, the former front-runner of Jelly’s Pierced Tattoo) has come home for a concert at Small’s, and though she gave up the Motor City for the Windy City, we still love her nonetheless. There’s definitely no love lost, so show her that when she performs at Small’s. (21+) $8

We’re not above riffing on an artist’s name, but come on, this is just too easy. We’ll let them do it: “Like their celestial namesake, Stars only come out at night.” In any event, our neighbors from the Even Greater White North (i.e. Montreal) make some pretty cool synth-pop music, and we definitely recommend catching them at the Majestic. $20
