When: Fri., April 8, 8 p.m. 2016
After plenty of band name and lineup changes, the Civilians end their 2005 hiatus and reunite for this one big hurrah at the Loving Touch. They’ll perform their greatest hits from their six-album discography in celebration of a digital release. Often compared to the Jam and even the Beatles, the Detroit-based rock band crafted upbeat pop-rock music with a hint of Motown flair. Tracing its origins back to Central Michigan University, the Civilians’ current lineup includes Jim Hebler, David Galens, and Sidi Henderson, who will be taking the stage with their good friends and “war-mates” American Mars and the Burros. Some proceeds from the show will go to the Children of Flint Education Relief Fund.
