Famed heavy metal band Slipknot rocked DTE Energy Music Theatre Tuesday night along with Lamb Of God. Forming in 1995 and having a total of 16 members through the band Slipknot have not slowed down a bit. With their high energy and in your face attitude, Slipknot has to be one of the many best live acts around. Also a part of this amazing concert were openers Lamb Of God, Bullet For My Valentine, and Motionless In White.

Not touring since 2011 Incubus decided to finally come off of a long break of side projects and what lead singer Brandon Boyd called being burnt out. Now on a new label and under new managment, the band is focused on creating new music and getting back on the road. The band released a 4 song EP entitled "Trust Fall" back in May and plan on adding 4 more songs after this tour with the Deftones, Death From Above 1979 and the Bots (not pictured).
This past weekend Belle Isle was booming, and it was not from the multiple weddings or any of the many bbq's going on. It was from the Red Bull Global Rallycross event that went on from Friday through Sunday. It was the first time the GRC stopped in Detroit and it was a little rocky for the circuit. Despite limited promotion and virtually a baron infield, the spectators that did attend seemed to still enjoy it. The racing itself is fast paced with short 4 lap heats that go through a huge jump, dirt section, and a lane called "The Joker" which is a short cut every driver must take once during a race.
