Memorial Weekend Barbecue & Music Festival

Fri., May 22, Sat., May 23, Sun., May 24 and Mon., May 25

It’s nothing new, really: Motor City Wine has been hosting parties over Memorial Day weekend for six years now, with music and DJs. The only thing is, they moved in 2013, and now have a huge patio, a grill, and chef John Breeland cookin’ up the goods all weekend long. Add to this the menu of good values they serve at this Detroit wine bar, and you’ve got the makings of a killer weekend.

Michigan Sound Conference

Fri., May 22, 10 a.m.

The second annual conference from the Detroit Sound Conservancy looks to be fascinating and fun. In any week aside from Memorial Day weekend/the Movement festival, we’d have dedicated a feature article to this exceptional event, so we’ll try to convince you to attend in these few words. The theme for the conference is “how has Michigan generally, and Detroit in particular, been a leader in the creation of the global modern soundscape?” Dozens of enthused presented will do talk about a vast array of local music, past and present. Of particular interest: Karen VanderKloot DiChiera on women composers; Tresor’s Dimitri Hegemann on the Detroit-Berlin connection; Daniel Patton on Creem’s archives; Rebekah Farrugia and Kellie D. Hay on women and hip-hop in Detroit; Francis Grunow on “the Cass Tech sound,” and Mike Rubin moderating Dave Tompkins’ presentation at 5 p.m. in the sheet music room, “Jam Pony Expressway through Your Skull: Taking the Detroit-Miami Line.” Free

Los Lobos

Fri., May 22, 8 p.m.
phone 734-668-8463

Everyone should see a Los Lobos show at least once every five years, even if you don’t own any of their records. That’s because they have such a deep catalog of terrific songs, played with skill, passion, and soul. And when you see them, you understand that they are not only representing multiple traditions within Mexico and in the Southern California diaspora of that culture, and not only did they arise from the vibrant Chicano punk/alt scene of the late 1970s and Slash magazine, and all that stuff. But this is a much better jam band than any of the bros who get offered up as such. The only problem is that the boomers around you might start hippie dancing, so just close your eyes and get lost. $29.50 - $75
