Smart Bets: Koffin Kats

There’s a lot to admire about Detroit’s Koffin Kats. They started out playing for beer. Like true troubadours, they took their show on the road full time. They write songs about sci-fi subject matter and real-world atrocities. And, though the band’s namesake, Tommy Koffin, has left the lineup “to pursue a normal life,” the remaining members kept at it. Last year, the group released its seventh studio effort, Born Of The Motor. According to a press release, it’s “both a sonic homage to their resident city and its blue-collar legacy, and a metaphor for being hard-wired toward hard work and persistent ambition.” Koffin Kats play The LAB on Saturday, Feb. 8, at 9 p.m. The Go Devils also perform. $10.
