Wed 11/02 WPTS Radio presents Danny Brown - The Exhibition 2016 with special guests Maxo Kream, ZelooperZ 8:00pm All Ages
Danny Brown is a Detroit MC who embraced his unique hood/hipster personality, took full advantage of social media, and -- fueled by his experiences with drug dealing and drug taking, as well as a wicked sense of humor -- delivered some of the most vivid and side-splitting rhymes of his era. Brown (real last name: Sewell) surfaced during the mid-2000s as a member of Reser'vor Dogs. The group advanced far enough to get the attention of the Roc-A-Fella label; a deal was not struck, but an A&R rep assisted Brown with the recording and release of a mixtape, Detroit State of Mind. - Andy Kellman for AllMusic.com

Sat 11/05 The Noise Presents Beartooth: The Aggressive Tour with special guests Every Time I Die, Fit For A King, Old Wounds 7:00pm All Ages
In the two short years since their debut album was cooked up in front man Caleb Shomo’s basement, BEARTOOTH has catapulted into heavy music’s stratosphere. “The Lines,” “Beaten in Lips,” “In Between,” and “Body Bag” collected over 10 million views on YouTube, as BEARTOOTH trekked around the globe with Slipknot, Pierce The Veil, Bring Me The Horizon, Sleeping With Sirens, Reading & Leeds, Download Festival and the Vans Warped Tour. BEARTOOTH has as much in common with stomping metalcore as old-school punk, vintage screamo, and harder edged pop punk, with a bit of cinematic extravagance.

Wed 11/09 91.3 WYEP presents The Wood Brothers 8:00pm All Ages
‘Paradise,’ an album about longing and desire and the ways in which the pursuit of fulfillment can keep it perpetually out of our reach, is The Wood Brothers’ most sophisticated work to date and also their most rocking, with bassist Chris Wood playing electric on tracks for the first time. Recorded at Dan Auerbach’s Easy Eye studio in Nashville, ‘Paradise’ captures the latest chapter in the ongoing evolution of a band—and a family—navigating the joy and challenges of a life in music. Dubbed “masters of soulful folk” by Paste, The Wood Brothers released their debut studio album, ‘Ways Not To Lose,’ on Blue Note in 2006.

Wed 11/16 Crown The Empire - The Retrograde Tour with special guests blessthefall, New Years Day, Too Close To Touch, Light Up The Sky 6:30pm All Ages
Since bursting onto the scene in 2011 with their debut EP, “Limitless”, Crown The Empire have shown no signs of slowing down. 2012 brought the band to the forefront with their debut full-length, “The Fallout”, and a cocktail of world tours, magazine covers, and die hard fan dedication ensued, pushing ‘The Fallout’ to sell over 85,000 copies to date. Their sophomore follow up ‘The Resistance: Rise of the Runaways’ further explored the conceptual world within their previous release, and was greeted with even more enthusiasm, reflected in the 75,000 copies sold in half the time of their previous effort. In 2016, Crown The Empire released their new album ‘Retrograde’. This record sees a departure from the conceptual world that defined their past efforts, and instead the band takes you on a voyage into the reality of their lives as a band of twenty-something’s growing up under a spotlight, and the way they see the world around them.

Fri 12/09 For Today - The Farewell Tour 7:30pm All Ages
"After over 11 years as a band, 6 full length albums and 1 EP, we have decided to make 2016 the last year of For Today. When we started this band in 2005, we never imagined that our music would make it out of Sioux City, Iowa, let alone take us all around the world multiple times. Our lives have been hugely impacted by the time we've spent making music and touring. We met our wives, had kids and moved to different states because of For Today. It's been an incredible experience, but we feel like now is the time to close this chapter of our lives and move on. There's no behind the scenes drama happening or disagreements between band members. We're all still best friends and will continue to be long after the band is over." - For Today
