This event is all ages
Wayne Kramer, the founding guitarist and leader of Detroit's proto-punk/hard rock band the MC5, will celebrate the landmark anniversary of its incendiary debut album Kick Out the Jams with the 35+ date "Kick Out the Jams: The 50th Anniversary Tour" and a memoir The Hard Stuff: Dope, Crime, the MC5, and My Life of Impossibilities (Da Capo Press). Kramer has put together his wish-list worthy band of fellow travelers, dubbed MC50 -- Brother Wayne on guitar along with guitarist Kim Thayil (Soundgarden), drummer Brendan Canty (Fugazi), bassist Dug Pinnick (King's X), and the afro'd secret weapon frontman, 6-foot-7-inch Marcus Durant (Zen Guerrilla).

The Motor City Five started in Detroit in 1966 and were responsible for some of the loudest, most energetic rock music to be created in the late sixties and early seventies. They were a huge influence on punk not only by their sound, but by their sheer attitude: they ran a newspaper advertisement saying "Fuck Hudson's" after Hudson's (a department store) refused to carry their record (Kick Out the Jams (1969)) due to the explicit lyrics. This eventually had them fired from their label, Elektra. They created two more studio albums before disbanding in 1972.
