It’s a rockin’ bit of Detroit punk history at PJ’s with the Seatbelts topping the bill. They’re a reunited punk band from the 1970s whose first single was produced by none other than Ron Asheton. They broke up in the 1980s, but a new version of the band formed in 2010, with original members Greg Upshur (vocals), Skid Marx (bass) and Tony Bojanic (drums) alongside new members Derek Murtagh and John Whalen. How many bands release that first LP about 30 years after the initial single? It’s worth the wait for power pop stompers like “I Want to Marry Patti Smith.” They’ll appear with a Detroit punk “supergroup” called The Britemores.
