Insane Clown Posse playing Ballroom
With Attila, Wednesday, March 28, 8 p.m. Tickets to the all-ages show are $27 in advance and $30 day of show.
When Insane Clown Posse emerged from the darkness surrounding Detroit’s underground music scene in the early ‘90s, the world had yet to imagine the impact that the hardcore hip-hop style spawned by these two artists — Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope — would bring to bear on mainstream music. Shunned by mainstream music players like MTV and castigated in the media, banned from radio airwaves and yanked from the shelves of “conventional” retail outlets, ICP was dealt a hand that seemed destined for swift and certain failure. Instead, the duo amassed a following of millions of fans — endearingly called “Juggalos” — and smashed through the ceiling of music industry expectation.
The fate of Attila was sealed the moment Chris "Fronz" Fronzak was handed a demo by his high-school pal Sean Heenan. It was a disc filled with the extreme sounds of underground metal, housed in the CD jewel case of an album by rapper/actor Ludacris.
It's from these gritty essential ingredients, the "biscuits" of Southern-fried metal like Pantera and the "gravy" of hip-hop like Lil Jon, that Attila was born. Each of these seemingly disparate genres are united in aggressive force; in a shared authenticity; by a determination to keep it real, and with loud dedication to stay true to the game.

Young Dubliners return to Magic City
Wednesday, July 25. 8 p.m. Tickets for the all-ages show are $15.
The hardest working band in Celtic Rock is about to start another hard touring year. After a packed 2016 that started in Alaska, cruised to the Bahamas, returned to Dublin, Ireland then toured all summer long in the U.S., they are ready to do it all again in 2017. Once more the year will start in Alaska and cover the entire U.S. March is the usual multi-state mayhem as the Young Dubliners celebrate the St. Paddy's day madness that happily unites the whole country in a mutual desire to go nuts.
"We are very appreciative of how the bands fans have continued to support the live shows. Makes for a crazy but enjoyable year despite the hectic travel schedule" says lead singer Keith Roberts.
In recent years they have twice appeared on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live!," had songs featured in TV shows ("Sons of Anarchy," "Human Target") and toured extensively as a headliner and as the opener for such a diverse list of artists as Collective Soul, Jethro Tull, Jonny Lang and many more.
"Drawing from all nine albums makes for an interesting set list every night and keeps us on our toes" says Roberts. "Playing new cities and venues each year gives us another type of boost. The U.S. is such a huge market full of little hidden treasures in the form of festivals and clubs, there is never a dull moment."
