Two years in the making, the Michigan Rock'n Brew festival showcases the best in local music and promotes local microbrews, businesses, and environmental efforts in its downtown Lansing debut weekend. The two-day deluge of tunes and beer sports more than 25 local and nationally-touring bands across two stages, along with a headlining duo of nationally beloved alternative-rock outfits. The Toadies sneak away from Fort Worth to bust out searing '90s loud-quiet-loud classics such as “Possum Kingdom” and “I Come from the Water,” along with innovative new loud-quiet-loud-quiet numbers from their upcoming album Play.Rock.Music. Co-headlining cohorts Helmet craft a hefty alternative metal sound heard in hits such as “Unsung” and “In the Meantime.”
Other bands on the still-growing roster include Motor City indie darlings The Hard Lessons, the atomic rockabilly of Delilah DeWylde and The Lost Boys, and the gritty Detroit rock of Dirty Americans. Besides a bevy of statewide-brewed suds including Bell's and Founders on hand for $6, a parade of local food vendors will dish out meaty, vegan, and vegetarian takes on carnival-style treats and ethnic favorites.
