What You'll Get
- $15 for one general-admission ticket, plus one drink (up to $27.98 value)
- $23 for two general-admission tickets, plus two drinks (up to $55.96 value)
- Who is Drowning Pool: a grime-streaked alt-metal act who destroyed the air waves when their platinum-selling debut album Sinner dropped in 2001
- What else dropped: the bodies—all the way to to the floor—in their song “Bodies,” which juices mosh pits to this day
- The Tragedy: a year after Sinner came out, lead singer Dave “Stage” Williams passed away from an undiagnosed heart condition
- How the Band Responded: in 2002, they released the retrospective DVD Sinema, and used the proceeds to posthumously fulfill his lifelong goal of buying his parents a house
- Williams’s Continuing Legacy: 2012’s Resilience, the first album featuring Drowning Pool’s new singer Jasen Moreno, included the melancholy ballad “In Memory Of…”
- Their Latest Work: “Hellelujah” was released in early 2016, with Moreno demonstrating a sound AllMusic called “eerily like the late Layne Staley at certain points, while evoking latter-day Marilyn Manson when he’s really pushing the higher limits”

About Diesel Concert Lounge
"It's like a little city in there," has been said of the 47,000 square feet of entertainment surrounding Diesel Concert Lounge. As part of the Premier Lanes complex—also home to a Mexican restaurant and the Premier Lanes Bowling Alley—Diesel Concert Lounge is a complete about-face from the space's previous incarnation. With Premier Lanes' owner Joe Sgroi behind the scenes, the floor is now a haven for head-banging hard rock and head-bobbing hip-hop. For over two years, Diesel has been one of the only places in Michigan to sport multiple stages within one venue and it keeps its calendar packed with a variety of touring stars and local heroes. Most of those heroes, including Kid Rock, Buckcherry, Stryper, Sponge, Trapt, and Saving Abel, are enshrined on the walls in hand-printed concert posters.
