Wednesday, June 28th - Pig w/ Julien K and Ghostfeeder

2016: Electronic rock and ex KMFDM alum RAYMOND WATTS, GUENTER SCHULZ, EN ESCH, Z.MARR and GALEN WALING join together under Watts' esteemed flag <PIG>. With a new album (The Gospel) hanging at #1 on METROPOLIS RECORDS for over 10 weeks, and a well received North American Tour with several sold out dates and an appearance at the esteemed COLD WAVES festival, <PIG> confirmed that they indeed are back!

2017 starts the band in the studio recording a new EP to be released as well as a remix cd, a UK tour and finally <PIG> intends to return to the US and Canada with another NORTH AMERICAN TOUR!

Joining <PIG> will be founding ORGY members RYAN SHUCK and AMIR DERAKH as well as FU (DOWNLOAD) with their acclaimed project JULIEN-K! After the compilation release "CALIFORNIA NOIR 1+2" funded by a highly successful crowd funding campaign (over 35k received) and scoring the film "BETA TEST", the band is ready to take their stylistic show on the road.

Rounding out the bill will be GHOSTFEEDER. These young upstarts are eager to hit the road after releasing "World Famous" in July on Distortion Records.

Tickets: $12 In Advance / $15 Day of Show.

Sunday, July 9th - Detroit Air Sex Championships

AIR SEX is an hour and a half of insanely fun, sex-positive, and oddly uplifting mixture of comedy and honest sexual expression. Created and hosted by Comedian Chris Trew, It never delivers the same show twice, and it's always an unforgettable experience that leaves the audience, performers, and judges talking for a long time after the curtain falls. It's a one-of-a-kind, rowdy celebration of sex as the most ridiculous and important activity that humans engage in on a daily basis. 

8 p.m. / $10 in advance / 18+

Saturday, September 23rd - Castle wsg Her Dark Host, Wild Savages and Cthulu

CASTLE was forged in San Francisco in 2009 and released their debut full-length, In Witch Order, on Germany’s Ván Records in 2011. The album brought light to the newly-formed band and earned them “Album Of The Year” honors from Metal Hammer Norway, as well as Roadburn Festival’s “Newcomer Of The Year.”

Shortly thereafter, the band joined the Prosthetic Records roster in North America and released their critically-adored sophomore album Blacklands. The record left to a Canadian JUNO nomination for “Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year.” CASTLE performed over two-hundred shows worldwide in support of the release alongside the likes of The Sword, Conan, Intronaut and Pentagram among many others as well as appearances at some of the underground’s largest fests including Roadburn and the London and Berlin Desertfests.
