Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

The Weekend Roundup is where I tell you about the cool things to do and events in Detroit, right? Well, this week I’m intentionally leaving something off.

Kid Rock is playing at DTE Energy Music Theatre all weekend and it’s not making the weekend roundup. Why? Well, I was stupid and didn’t buy tickets.

So, yes, I’m bitter.

I hope all you smart people who bought tickets when they went on sale have a great time.
