Milky Chance Blossoms With Their “Blossom” Tour

The German duo of Milky Chance brought their Harmonic and ambient pop sound to a full house at The Fillmore on Friday October 13th.  Usually going out on Friday the 13th would ensue in a night of oddities that would encounter bad luck in one form or another. That is if you believe in such things. But walking into the Fillmore none of that was present, and instead the historic venue was filled with smiling faces and feel good vibes.

    The duo consisting of Clemens Rehbein, and Philip Dausch brought their Blossom tour to Detroit and did not disappoint. Starting the show off with clouds, one of their more up beat groovy tunes off their new album.  As Clemens belted out lyrics from the chorus “I just wanna take care of you my love”. As if it was a proclamation to the crowd for what they had in store for the night. The folk/rock ensemble continued on from there. Bringing the loud and joyous crowd along with them on their musical journey of folktronica sound filled with a simple but elegant light show the mirrored the bands energy. Highlights of the evening included a good mix of songs both old and new. Playing hits from their debut EP “sad necessary” including Down By The River, Flashed Junk Mind, and my personal favorite Sad Necessary. Mixing in well with their older tracks was songs off their latest effort “Blossom” including Ego, Blossom, Firebird, and Doing Well. But not to be outdone the group came out for an encore to play the first single off “blossom” titled Cocoon, and the uber popular and crowd favorite Stolen Dance.  

    The group didn’t hold anything back. Lead by Clemens raspy yet powerful vocals that illuminated throughout The Fillmore and the fans within.  Lingering in my head well after the concert was over. Like a pop song you cant get out of your head.  I for one look forward to seeing where this duo is headed musically in the future as they continue to mesh their indie-folk sound down tempo, vibrant pop music.  Next time you see Milky Chance come to town near you I advise you do your eyes and ears a favor and check them out.

Post Malone At Royal Oak Music Theater

Post Malone stopped by Royal Oak Music Theater on his sold out Stoney tour to support his debut album Stoney.

Post’s debut album, the 2016 powerhouse RIAA Certified Platinum debut Stoney, has remained a TOP 10 STREAMING ALBUM for 38 consecutive weeks since its December 2016 release and has made Post Malone the MOST STREAMED NEW ARTIST with over 3 Billion Streams globally. Tracks include his first Hot 100 Top 10 entry “Congratulations” [feat. Quavo] (5x-platinum), the breakout “White Iverson” (4x-platinum), “Go Flex” (platinum), and “Too Young” (platinum). Moreover, the multiplatinum Dallas maverick continues to consistently hold down a spot in the Billboard Top 200. 

Post started off his set with  one of his many hits "Too Young" but the night just went up from there. For being new to the rap game Post Malone was able to keep the show going and had his sold out show singing along to every word and dancing along to every song. He even threw in a Nirvana cover in there as well! I hope you got tickets to his sold out tour because this will be one you don't want to miss.

The Rocket Summer at The Loving Touch

The Rocket Summer is celebrating 10 years of the Do You Feel album. The Do You Feel 10 Year Anniversary Tour kicked off in his home state of Texas and will be circling the country throughout the summer.  

Sometimes, to see how far you’ve come, you have to look back at your beginnings. For Bryce Avary, the brainchild of The Rocket Summer, his evolution into the power pop/indie rock powerhouse that he is becoming has origins in his dynamic and explosive entrance into the mainstream ten years ago with his breakthrough album Do You Feel. Before he embarks into his evolution forward, Avary will be stepping out of the studio where he is working on new music to celebrate the 10 year anniversary of a special album for TRS fans by performing the album for the first time ever in its entirety.

The Rocket Summer packed fans into a small dive bar just outside of Detroit for a very special performance of the Do You Feel album! As soon as TRS stepped on stage the crowd lit up and sang along to every word as they took a step back to 2007. Through out the night the crowd screamed at the top of their lungs to songs like "Do You Feel", "All I Have" and "So Much Love"

Check out the tour dates below for your chance to see this amazing show!

Bayside with Say Anything at The Crofoot

Bayside and Say Anything hit the road together this summer to bring us one of the best tours to kick off the summer. Bayside had a special acoustic set due to a death in the family of Chris Guglielmo who had to leave to be with his family. In the dark there was some light two of the four members of Bayside (Jack o’shed and Anthony Raneri) came on stage and gave a intimate acoustic set. Talking to some fans before the show none of them have ever seen a acoustic set by Bayside. Throughout the set the band played some of their hits “Megan” “Don’t Call Me Peanut” and the crowd favorite “Devotion And Desire”.

 

Say Anything was up next and the crowd lit up! They definitely got the crowd on their feet and moving  and singing along to every word to songs like “Night Song” and “Give A Damn”. Even after Say Anything finished the show with “Alive With The Glory Of Love” the fans didn’t leave they screamed for the band they love to come back out and do one more.  After a few minutes of the crowd chanting “ONE MORE SONG!!” the band came out and closed the night out with  "Every Man Has A Moly”

State Champs At St Andrews Hall

State Champs hit the road with Against The Current and With Confidence. 

 The Australian pop punk band With Confidence started off the show on a high note. with songs like “London Lights” and “Keeper”.   As I was watching  With Confidence all i could think about was wow they sound like a young Blink-182.

Up next was Against The Current, a New York band fronted by Chrissy Costanza  got everyone off their feet and dancing. Chrissy Constanza matched their energy she did not slow down the whole set.

As soon State Champs hit the stage the crowd went nuts, kids were flying over the barricade after crowd surfing to the front. Everyone in the venue was screaming so loud it made it hard to hear the band. Some of the high points of the show were when the band said how awesome the Detroit crowd was along with them playing “All Or Nothing” and “Elevated"

Lukas Graham at The Fillmore

Review Sam Nork

The Danish pop-soul band known as Lukas Graham hit the stage at The Fillmore with a unique sense of energy on Tuesday night. Frontman Lukas Forchhammer was excited to be back in Detroit. To start out the night, the band played was the exuberant anthem known as "Take The World By Storm". Forchhammer kept the night entertaining by jumping all around the stage and even removing his shirt near the beginning of the set. Throughout the night, he told stories about missing his father, his friends being in jail and other childhood struggles. He even told the crowd that it has been his dream to tour America and he couldn't be happier that the band was. The group went off stage after the last song, only to be brought back out by the cheers of the crowd. The encore continued the show with "Funeral", which is about the singer's ideal funeral. Last but not least, the band's keyboardist, Morten Ristorp, started playing the beginning notes of "7 Years" and the crowd lost it's mind. The audience sang along with Forchhammer through every verse. The band promised they would come back and play in Detroit, but have twice as many people show up. The band has 3 Grammy nominations this year including Song of the Year and Record of the Year.
