A card for all the other days

When thinking about Mother’s Day it’s easy to remember the cards, meals, and cheesy gifts that were made or bought to “honor” my Mom on her special day. It was the one day that that as a kid, I would stop and take the time to say, “Thanks Mom.”

Detroit In Focus: Art

  • THE BLACK KEYS

    Dan Auerbach and Patrick Carney make up the powerhouse duo The Black Keys who came back through Detroit this past weekend on the first leg of their "Turn Blue World Tour". Thirteen years later and on their 8th studio album, the duo continues to rock the stage. The music has so much feeling live its as though you are right there in the garage during a jam session. The Black Keys will certainly go down as legends in the Rock and Blues genre, and are a must see live.

Like Clockwork

Queens Of The Stone Age rocked The Fillmore, bringing new music with their 6th studio album "Like Clockwork". QOSA have not had an album since 2007 so this new release was not only big for fans but for front man Josh Homme and the band as well. Like Clockwork has received critical acclaim reaching number 2 in the UK charts and number 1 on the Billboard 200. In 2010 singer Homme suffered serious complications from a knee surgery and was looking at the end of the band. But members of the band supported Homme and got him back in the studio to record this 6th album. Looks like Queens Of The Stone Age are back on track, and the music is nothing short of awesome. Check out band live and check out the new album, you wont be disappointed.
