Vanessa Carlton

Thu., Feb. 23, 7:30 p.m.

Don’t lie — you’d walk a thousand miles to see Vanessa Carlton live. The former 2000s teen staple and pretty great pianist returns to Detroit. Every woman who went through her awkward teenage years in a certain span of time had Carlton’s Be Not Nobody, and certainly sang along to hits like “Ordinary Day,” “A Thousand Miles,” “Wanted,” and “White Houses” into their glittery Conair hairbrushes. If you somehow skated through the early years of the new millennium without encountering her, she’s heavy on the piano sound. $30-$37

Shwayze

Thu., Feb. 23, 8 p.m.

You might remember Shwayze from MTV’s mid-2000s flop reality TV show (but really, how many of MTV’s mid-2000s reality shows weren’t flops?) Buzzin. Odds are that you’re more familiar with his 2011 album, Island in the Sun, which earned its fair share of praise and featured Kendrick Lamar. Before that, Snoop Dogg took interest in him, working with him on some of his first post-Buzzin’ tracks. At 31 years old, he’s still an up-and-comer in the rap world. His sound is still very “Buzzin’” and “Corona and Lime,” both of which hit it pretty big on the Billboard top 20 back in 2008. $15

Geoff Tate - The Whole "Ryche" Story Tour

Thu., Feb. 23, 6 p.m.-1 a.m.
phone 248-797-6931
john@thetokenlounge.com

GEOFF TATE When most musicians record solo albums, it’s because they need an outlet for material that doesn’t fit the scope of their band. That wasn’t the case with Geoff Tate. While there’s very little on his solo debut that couldn’t fit within the ever-evolving musical scope of Queensrÿche, the difference for the vocalist lies in the expression of those songs, and how they actually came to fruition. $25
