Download of the Week

…I Do My Other Thing (ZMix) by The Anonymous feat. Passalacqua

The list of bands playing the 37th annual Dally in the Alley are as wild and original as the soiree itself. When The Anonymous takes the stage, it’s a safe bet the set will end with this super-catchy hip-hop song, so give it a few spins, learn the chorus, then come down to Dally and party with us … after you do that other thing.

Plan For the Weekend w/ Culture City

Hail to the Queens @ Checker Bar & Gril

Friday, Sept. 5 @ 10 P.M.| Detroit

Where Jamaican Queens go, their loyal subjects follow, and for good reason. Sonically rambunctious, making music where indie-pop meets trap rap, these dudes are definitely wear psychoactive crowns. The Queens are joined by Psalm and James Cooper at this unlikely downtown bar turned venue.

Wudang Clan @ Wudang Swordsman Academy

Saturday, September 6th @ 12 PM

The Wudang Clan ain’t nothing to fuss with. Okay, just had to get that out the way. Join Swordsman Xia of the Wudang Swordsmen Academy for a workshop in training methods for Wudang swordplay and the Fencing methods utilizing these internal principles found in Wudang's Taiyi and Taiji Sword arts. This workshop coincides with the announcement of Swordsman Xia & Swordsman Moss opening the WSA Detroit branch.

Two Wheels at a Time @ Ton-Up 2014

Saturday, September 6th @ 11 AM

The Cafe Racer shop in Ypsilanti kinda staked the claim on vintage motorcycling in southeast Michigan, so it makes sense that Depot Town plays host to this motorcycle and music festival featuring vintage and custom motorcycles, scooters, and mopeds. The festival vibe is rounded-out by live music, food and drink vendors, and more!

Stringing You Along @ Brightmoor Community Center

The Chair of the Fine Arts Department at the College for Creative Studies, Timothy van Laar is now the latest artist to be represented by Midtown’s Re;View Contemporary Gallery. He says “The Loss of Either/Or” which opens the gallery’s fall season, is an exhibition of paintings “rooted in collage and its disruptive procedures. Each painting makes use of multiple languages of paint.”

Sunday Sidewalk Soirée @ Eastern Market

Sunday, September 7th @ 1PM | Detroit

Live theatre, music, dance and art installations crash the #SundayStMkt during the inaugural Sidewalk Jamboree. Shoppers are promised the chance to experience curated, site-specific performances choreographed just for the historic district.
