The Many Derivations of punk will erupt this weekend as Orion Music + More descends onto Belle Isle. The Metallica-created music festival boasts a wide range of raucous acts, including The Red Hot Chili Peppers and the Detroit band Battlecross. Happenstance being what it is, Detroit will also witness dueling Black Flags: Flag, fronted by original member Keith Morris, performing at Orion, and a reunion of Black Flag, sans Henry Rollins, at the Majestic Theater Good Times, good times.
