Blast from the past with The Rockets

For a blast from the past, check out The Rockets with Salem Witchcraft and Black Irish on Saturday at the Fillmore Detroit, 2115 Woodward Ave. (313-961-5450). Following their stint with Mitch Ryder & the Dettroit Wheels, guitarist Jimmy McCarty and drummer Johnny "Bee" Badanjek rocked hard in the '70s and early '80s with the band The Rockets, including a top 40 hit with a cover of Peter Green-era Fleetwood Mac's "Oh Well."

Currently, McCarty and Badanjek keep very busy performing with Mystery Train and the Howling Diablos, respectively, but have reunited as The Rockets for a couple of reunion shows after The Rockets received a Distinguished Achievement Award at the Detroit Music Awards.

Salem Witchcraft, another very popular group in Detroit in the 1970s, reunited in 2009.

Tickets are only $10.
