Adult. to perform at Coleman A. Young Airport
Electro-punk duo Adult. will play their next hometown show in a very unique setting.
The internationally-known group — comprised of artists Adam Lee Miller and Nicola Kuperus — will celebrate 20 years as a band and the release of their seventh studio album, "This Behavior," with a concert at the Coleman A. Young International Airport on Sept. 8.
The show, which is being promoted by Detroit music venues El Club and UFO Factory, is in one of the original airport hangers from the late 1920s and early '30s, Kuperus told The Detroit News.
"The space is massive," she said in an e-mail. "Beautiful glass windows, curved ceiling with glazed brick. It's quite stunning. It's also pretty serendipitous that our first album has an airplane on the cover."
Besides a performance from Adult., the concert at old Detroit City Airport will feature a collaboration of the groups Wolf Eyes and Universal Indians performing under the name Universal Eyes. Boy Harsher, FlucT and DJs John "Jammin'" Collins, Zola Jesus and Prism Views are also on the bill.
"I also think it's amazing that we can come in and do this type of event," she said. "It just seemed like something you can't do in just every city. It's one of those things I love about Detroit."
Organizers are working on adding a food truck rally and possibly a skateboard half pipe to the event.
Tickets for the Sept. 8 concert are $15 now and will be $20 closer to the date. Tickets are available at ElClubDetroit.com. Coleman A. Young International Airport is at 11499 Conner in Detroit.
