Detroit is one of America’s music capitals, and the city also happens to be a great place to celebrate Independence Day.

For those who want some music or a dynamic show to go along with celebrating the greatest country in the world, there will be a beefy lineup of artists and shows that will make the 2018 edition of July 4th one for the record books. Here’s the best to choose from in Detroit for Independence Day.

The War on Drugs 
July 5 @ 7 pm 
Royal Oak Music Theatre -- 318 W. 4th St., Royal Oak, MI 48067 
(248) 399-2980 

No, this isn't a show about the war on drugs. There is a band out there called The War on Drugs, and, unlike their failed political counterpart, the band is actually good at what it does, and that is making the best music possible. The War on Drugs will bring their musical war to suburban Detroit the day after Independence Day, and it'll be a show that won't disappoint. 

Sistine Chaple Choir 
July 11 @ 7 pm 
Detroit Opera House -- 1526 Broadway St., Detroit, MI 48226 
(313) 961-3500 

In the mode for something holy? Than the Sistine Chaple Choir will be able to assist in that department. The Sistine Chaple Choir is the Pope's choir, and they're in the U.S. to spread the gospel to the masses. Tagging along in the Detroit stop will be the Heart of Detroit Festival Choir, which will feature Audivi in an experience that will be moving. 

Panic! At The Disco 
July 14 @ 8 pm 
Little Caesars Arena -- 66 Sibley St., Detroit, MI 48201 
(313) 471-3200 

Panic! At the Disco sure knows how to bring the panic. This band has been near the top of the pop rock scene ever since their inception in 2004, and even though some of their critics are searching for it, this band is showing no signs of slowing down, any time soon. 

Lake Street Dive 
June 26 @ 7 pm 
Royal Oak Music Theatre -- 318 W. 4th St., Royal Oak, MI 48067 
(248) 992-2980 

Lake Street Dive is a band that doesn't constrain itself to one genre. The Boston band spreads their creative muscle across a number of vibrant sounds, from southern rock to Motown. Speaking of Motown, the Dive will be in the home of soul music right before the July 4th festivities kick off, and what better way to get this weekend started off right than to take a ride on Lake Street Dive?
