*SMOKER'S CLUB TOUR W/ METHOD MAN, CURREN$Y, BIG K.R.I.T. is being moved from the Royal Oak Music Theatre to the Eagle Theater in Pontiac. All tickets purchased for the Royal Oak Music Theatre will be honored at the Crofoot and tickets will still be available at the door. Sorry for any inconvience.



The Smoker's Club (TSC) seed sprouted in the Summer of 2010 by a group of friends seeking to merge both their love of music and medicinal medicine. While putting one in the air, the idea to create an event where everyone could celebrate their favorite hobby was planted. The Smoker's Club was formed.

Founding members of TSC include Cinematic Music Group President, Jonny Shipes, Shiest Bubz founder of Legendary Purple City Productions, GFCnewyork founder Steve-O, Harlem's own Smoke DZA, and Mississippi wunderkind Big K.R.I.T. Extended family includes Curren$y, The Jets, Mousa, Fiend, and CornerBoy P.

In March 2010, a one-off show was planned for the music festival SXSW. The Smoker's Club's SXSW tour date was headlined by a slew of hip-hop's budding superstars like Curren$y, Wiz Khalifa, Dom Kennedy, Black Hippies, The Pricks, Smoke DZA, Big K.R.I.T., Devin The Dude, and more. With the 500-seat venue selling-out, it became clear that the fans were feigning for another high so a 24-city tour kicked off on October 5, 2010. By the time the tour hit the west coast, the crowds jumped from 400 fans to over 1,200 concert-goers. Founder Jonny Shipes explains, "I grew up off High Times and there was the "Up In Smoke Tour" which I used to go to when I was a kid. I loved Snoop, Cypress, Redman etc. Now, you have us and we're just an extension of what we grew up on. We're basically taking our lifestyle on the road to party with our supporters."

With the overwhelming success of the last tour, on October 12, 2011, The Smoker's Club Tour will take off again for a now 35-city run with acts including Iron Lunged legend Method Man, Big K.R.I.T., Curren$y Spitta, Smoke DZA and The Pricks. With double the venue sizes, The Smoker's Club has become a steady growing family of music enthusiasts that love to get lifted just like us. Bring ya' lungs with ya'! GoodTalk.
