Plot Summary: “Detroit City Rocks” Rock-loving teens and aspiring musicians Hawk (Edward Furlong), Lex (Giuseppe Andrews), Trip (James DeBello) and Jam (Sam Huntington) can’t wait to see their favorite band, KISS, perform at an upcoming concert. However, when Jam’s pious mother (Lin Shaye) finds the tickets to the event, she incinerates them, leaving the boys desperate for a way to see the show. In their attempts to see KISS, the lads endure misunderstandings, humiliation, and violence, all just to see their beloved idols.
