You guys/ladies/other love Black Moth Super Rainbow so much we thought you'd like to see them for free! March 5/10 Magic Stick, all you gotta do is tell us your favorite bug (comment below or tweet @motorcityrocks). Winner (of ticket +1) will be chosen at random on 5/5 (at whatever time I wake up). Void where prohibited by law, yadda yadda.
I'm too big of a nerd to have ever experimented with psychedelics but if I ever do I hope my experience is something like a Black Moth Super Rainbow show. Having just released their latest record, Cobra Juicy, last fall, BMSR are hitting Detroit on May 10th as they return to the Magic Stick. I saw them there a few years ago and the experience was INTENSE. I have no idea how many smoke machines[...]

Michigan has 2 seasons: too hot and too cold (also known as SO COLD). And boring people only talk about the weather, so it is with great pleasure that I pronounce it summer. YES and this is your (first) summer jam!
Cayucas pronounced "zRfE-444" is the project of Zach Yudin, a Californian who has spent the last few years working at an independent jazz label ?! I[...]
Jamaican queens is the hottest band on earth and I mean that in the least sexual way. Their music is like taking a walk through the dream poppies. It's Adderall for your ears, and you don't need to buy it from college kids. It's flowing out of Ryan Spencer and Adam Pressley (Prussia alumni) and Christopher Lazlo Koltay (of the Dirtbombs). The show is at Trinosophes (1464 Gratiot, Detroit) for the [...]
The Solar System wrapped up their 3rd show as a band and several of the songs were put to video for posterity's sake. It's kind of dark and it's only one angle but the real thing to check out is the aural not the visual. The band drifts between indie-rock and psychedelic...a little less Syd Barrett than Heroes & Villians was, but all the pieces are there. They've got some dynamic tunes...shit'[...]
Apparently, Fall Out Boy has embarked on a tour to save rock 'n roll. While nothing oriented in that direction is going to tickle my fancy at the moment, I think the Danger Bees have the best chance at conquering a task so ludicrous. If you want catchy rock songs give 'em a go.
Our neighbors to the North often come off as seeing so polite, but this latest Danger Bees video--which I'm assuming [...]
The members of Phantasmagoria are already making 2013 a banner year. Not only did they just help to kick off a monthly showcase of electronic music at Ferndale's Loving Touch (the aptly named collective is called High Vibrations), but now they've dropped a new music video for the song "Child of the Sun" from their debut album released last summer and available for purchase here. The new video is [...]
Recently, the International Band Society released their new rankings for best bands. The ranking system--based quality of music, number of fans and overall radness--has firmly placed Omaha's Electric Needle Room as the 1,536th best band in the world. Hollywood was quick to recognize the achievement and quickly prepared a documentary charting the band's rapid rise to stardom.
The band has had a [...]
Add Ben Hoffman's new show 'The Ben Show' not only to your list of shit to torrent and not only to your list of things to DVR but also to your list of things to actually watch (on cable). Why? Because Ben Hoffman needs to eat and ratings drive the shitty career path he's eeked out for himself. Plus, the show is damn funny. Also, he has cancer.
I first became aware of Hoffman by being one of sev[...]
Odd Hours have a new live video capturing their performance of 'Insomnia in Color' at the Flint Local. The Flint Local is a classic spot in its own right--one of the few venues where the underage can catch great tunes--and Odd Hours have their amps cranked well past 11 throughout the song. The video is superbly shot and edited...a great piece of evidence to the quality work Tasha (Odd Hours keyboa[...]
