Detroit's Deadbeat Beat heads lineup with don't, Radiator Hospital, and Big Nothing

Local Pick

  • Deadbeat Beat.

If you find that you enjoy melancholic day drinking and suffer from crowd-induced anxiety, or serve as a magnet for weird dates, the sun-bleached stylings of Detroit’s Deadbeat Beat will likely satiate your need for relatable content.

Maria Nuccilli, Alex Glendening, and Zak Frieling have been on top of Detroit’s caffeinated garage pop scene since the band’s 2015 debut, Only Time Will Tell, which was followed by 2017’s When I Talk to You — both of which possess killer harmonies and hints of surf rock, though, maybe if one was surfing the river of a crowded city beach. The bill also features Philadelphia’s Radiator Hospital, Big Nothing out of San Jose, Calif., and one of Metro Times’ recent bands to watch, don’t, as well as DJ Shells.

Deadbeat Beat and others will perform at 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 16, at Outer Limits Lounge; 5507 Caniff St., Hamtramck; 313-826-0456; Tickets are $8.
