The Go

Detroit is knee-deep in music history, so it’s not hard to trace the Go‘s influences. The Stooges, the MC5 and even the Motown sound are at the core of the band’s generation-hopping brand of garage rock. But this Motor City foursome doesn’t dish out secondhand tunes. Probably best-known as “that band Jack White used to be in,” the Go has a way of making classic rock sound brand-new again. To celebrate its recently released Howl on the Haunted Beat You Ride, the group is playing Tuesday night at the Record Bar and a second show (after a short trip to Minneapolis) at the Replay Lounge on Thursday, August 9. Attention, booking agents: We smell a job opening.
