On Young & Pretty — the 2017 debut record from Brother Son — the Detroit foursome channeled the foot-stomping retro-rock of bands like the Sam Roberts Band and the vocal affectation of Alabama Shakes. Where Young & Pretty tackled everything from rock ’n’ roll, daddy issues, and the friend zone, sophomore record Goodies grapples with loneliness you can dance to (while sounding a wee bit like the Strokes). To help celebrate the new tunes, Brother Son has enlisted Austin-based Irons and Detroit’s Mark Whalen & the Buttermilk Boys.

Brother Son will perform on Thursday, June 13; Doors open at 7 p.m.; 4114 W. Vernor Hwy., Detroit; 313-279-7382; elclubdetroit.com. Tickets are $10-$15.
