Bob Seger

Thu., March 26, 6 p.m.
phone 248-377-0100

Whether you’re a fan of his earliest garage-rock recordings, an absolute fan of his anthemic ‘70s good-time ballads, or are just going along to this show with friends because it’s a thing to do, there is much to enjoy from a Bob Seger show. From the subtle and bluesy interplay between band members to the shirtless blotto dude right in front of you who keeps yelling “Like a roooooooooock!” long after the song has actually played, this is a true Michigander rite of passage. Unlike our other local rock star greats from the ‘60s and ‘70s, Seger still calls this area his home, plus, he’s neither dead nor an absolute nutjob! Like a rock, indeed. $75 - $95

Andrew Jackson Jihad

Thu., March 26, 6:30 p.m.
phone 313-833-9700

Nowadays folks are afraid to even whisper the word, “Jihad,” let alone include it in their band name. Of course, back in 2004 when Andrew Jackson Jihad was just forming, the term was just as buzzy. Like most punk bands, however, these Phoenix natives do things for the pure shock value of it. What’s more shocking than including the word, “Jihad‚” in your band name? How about mixing a folks sound in with your punk rock music sensibilities? Those who follow the band will know their lyrics usually cover topics like poverty, anxiety, depression, humanity, and religion, expect a politically charged night! $16.50 ADV - $18 DOS

Paradise Fears

Thu., March 26, 6:30 p.m.
phone 248-858-9333

Paradise Fears got started back in 2011, in a way that’s so indicative of the musical era we’re living in. The group skipped college to word full-time jobs to raise enough dough to record and self-release their first album. They then followed around touring bands and sold their CD to fans waiting in line. Four years later, they’re still releasing their own music, but that hasn’t stopped them from climbing the charts. Their most recent EP, Battle Scars, hit number two on the iTunes Alternative chart. $20 ADV - $22 DOS
