Tonight In Rock: The Temptations, The Melvins, Metro Station, Voxhaul Broadcast
Local Natives will be playing tonight at the Hotel Café | Picture via Local Natives's Myspace
Our Pick: The Union Line, Voxhaul Broadcast, My Pet Saddle, Local Natives @ The Hotel Café
Tonight Detroit-based R&B legends the Temptations and the Four Tops will be stopping through the Gibson Amphitheatre. LA-based punk rockers the Melvins are slated to headline the Troubadour. And, lastly, local electronic masterminds Flying Lotus and Nosaj Thing will be performing a Black Friday extravaganza at Undefeated/Stussy/Union. As good as that sounds, we strongly suggest heading over to the Hotel Café tonight to catch indie rockers Local Natives, who will be opening up for Voxhaul Broadcast.
