Grind: An Alice in Chains Tribute
Grind performing "Them Bones
South Carolina's Grind: An Alice in Chains Tribute isn't just going through the motions. Their reverence for the departed Layne Staley and Mike Starr runs deeper than Starr's penetrative bass grooves. Frontman Gary Allen's intense performances, which have been seen at House of Blues locations, Las Vegas, and the Sunset Strip, are intentionally haunting to those who caught Staley and Starr in their prime. Exhuming the spirit of '90s grunge down to every howled note and plaid facial whisker, the tribute band loads their spot-on sets with greatest hits such as "Rooster," "Them Bones," and "Man in a Box," alongside b-sides for hardcore fans.
St. Andrew's Hall
What was once the meeting spot for the Saint Andrew's Society of Detroit now hosts the hottest live acts and dance parties, including performances by Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Iggy Pop. The Main Ballroom sports a tricked-out sound-and-lighting system, a VIP balcony, a hardwood dance floor, and a bar more than 35 feet long. The lower level of The Shelter lives up to its name, as red curtains and a cabaret offer an escape to mellower pastures. Upstairs at The Burns Room, patrons chill out on lounge furniture under chandeliers while savoring views of Congress and the RenCen.
