Rebel Kind record release show

When: Sat., Dec. 17, 9 p.m. 2016

Rebel Kind, one of our favorite bands, are finally releasing their third album (second as a full band — and they’ve recently become a four-piece). They are all united in Detroit now that singer/songwriter Autumn Wetli returned from Los Angeles earlier this year. Rebel Kind are among the smartest and most fun bands working loosely within the garage-pop framework. This is a release party for their new album, Just For Fools, released on the same day on beloved label Urinal Cake. The album expands the group’s sound, with subtler harmonies and a harder edge here and there. It’s far more upbeat overall. You don’t have to wait a second in order to hear “Everything You Said Was Just a Lie,” which we premiered on our website last week. It’s a ferocious garage-pop gem that’s been a staple of live sets for some time, an instant classic in the ever-necessary “you lied and you cheated, go away now” genre. Isaac Levine DJs, Megan Stockton reads some new work, and AM People also perform.

Price: $5
