Fancy Werewolves is a Lansing and Detroit-based alternative band that has really caught my ear. The group -- which brings together Jeffrey D, Katie Whitecar and Tom Zarichney -- makes articulate, atmospheric jams with many layers and lots of melody. It's a polished sound that would fit well on modern alternative radio playlists.
The band's new EP, "Ghosts of Detroit," recently dropped and is avaiable at all the usual outlets (iTunes, Amazon, etc.). The EP features six songs, including a cover of Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart."
By mixing the angst of American metal-core and beauty of European melodic metal, Dayton, Ohio’s the Devil Wears Prada have turned on a new generation onto the sounds and style of metal. The Christian metal gents have played pretty much every major heavy music festival, and now, they’re on the road in support of their just-released album, “8:18.”

Lansing-based Gifts or Creatures craft a whimsical style of Americana that’s all its own. The band, which consists of husband-wife team Brandon John Foote and Bethany Foote, recently released a new album, “Yesteryear Western Darkness,” and we caught up with Brandon to learn more about the release.
That's the idea behind the pre-Halloween show Saturday at The Avenue Cafe in Lansing. The evening promises to offer a handful of killer tribute bands, playing hit after hit of gholish tunes.
Steele Repeater will kick things off playing Type O Negative songs, followed by The Plurette's ('60's Doo Wop tribute), Holly Buddies (Weezer tribute) and Children In Heat (Misfits tribute). Because, really, what goes better together than Halloween and the Misfits?
Cover is $3. For more information, head to the event's Facebook page.

"We have ranked as high as No. 16, but after the summer, our numbers usually go down a bit," Scott Hammontree, general manager and Talent Buyer for the Intersection, said in a statement. "We have worked hard to gain our position nationally in this business and it's a good feeling to see it recognized on an international level."
