Protomartyr.

Post-punk outfit Protomartyr is one of a handful of indie Detroit bands that has surpassed indie-dom by becoming one of the most high-profile Motor City rock acts this side of the White Stripes. After the band’s big record release blowout on the Detroit Princess Riverboat last year (from which we are still recovering), 2018 found Protomartyr teaming up with the Breeders’ Kelley Deal for the Consolation EP. Protomartyr has kept up momentum by headlining the re-opening party for UFO Factory and selling out multiple shows on its joint winter tour with Canada’s Preoccupations.

Protomartyr will perform at 8 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 4 Doors open at 8 p.m.; 208 S. First St., Ann Arbor; 734-996-8555; blindpigmusic.com; Tickets are $15-$18.
