Piebald

Fri., July 28, 6:30 p.m.

Emocore rock band Piebald isn’t finished just yet. The band first called it quits in 2008, but came out swinging in 2016 with a reunion tour and one more album, aptly named Best of What’s Left. Their punchy sound feels as timely as ever. The Shelter date is the band’s first Detroit performance in a decade. $10

John Sinclair

Fri., July 28, 7-10 p.m.

The late John Lennon was so awe-inspired by John Sinclair that he named a song after him. Lucky for us, the poet and activist (and one-time Metro Times contributor) is coming back to his roots for a performance of the music from his recording John Sinclair Mobile Homeland. Free with museum admission

Negative Approach

Fri., July 28, 8 p.m.

Would any other venue be as fitting for Detroit’s hardcore pioneers? With influences like the Stooges, Negative Approach is the city’s punk rock prodigal child that inspired generations of hardcore bands across the Midwest and globe with their minimalist 30-second tracks. Bloodclot, a supergroup made up of former members of Queens of the Stone Age, Danzig, and Cro-Mags, will warm up the pit. $18

Deadbeat Beat

Fri., July 28, 9 p.m.

It’s a record re-release show! This local trio dropped their debut record When I Talk to You back in 2011, but that was a limited run on cassette tape. Now, some six years later, When I Talk to You is now making its vinyl debut on indie label Glad Fact. And you know what? These tracks still sound as good as they did in 2011, an expert mix of 1970s pop and punk influences (but don’t call it pop-punk). Fellow Detroit rock ’n’ roll acts Kickstand Band and Double Winter round out the bill. $8

They released one ten song 7" and a full length (both on Touch and Go) before disbanding in 1985. John Brannon went on to form Laughing Hyenas.
