On Friday, September 27, the Corktown Tavern and Static will host a night of Detroit rock ’n’ roll dubbed Motor City Breakdown.

Bands performing on the night are the Luckouts, Loudmouth Baby (a female Ramones cover band), the Farleys, and the Wet Wipes.

There is also a Rock ’n’ Roll Rummage sale with “musical treasures, fun flicks and Halloween items.”

The Luckouts features guitarist Liz Scaris, who recently departed the Ruiners. According to the press release, “This powerhouse rock trio celebrates the release of their debut CD and new drummer Dan Durecki who joined forces with guitarist Liz Scaris and bassist Gretchen Domino. If you love raw Detroit rock & roll with a twist of glam you will have to see and hear The Luckouts!”

Of Loudmouth Baby, they say, “This is the second show of this all-female Ramones tribute band jamming all your favorite Ramones tunes. Join Titskreig, Cee Cee, Roxy and Tawny Ramone as they sing Gabba Gabba Hey!”

Yup, they have a member called Titskreig.

Cover is $5, and the fun starts at 9 p.m.
