It's the month for seeing great Detroit rock bands with a nostalgia groove. We saw the Hounds Below last week, and tonight we're going to see the Detroit Cobras, a great live band that mostly does covers, but with their own hard-rocking twist. So they're kicking off the Genius Ten. Leave your own in comments, or comment about whatever you want. Open thread.
