Jimmy Pardo

Sat., April 18, 8-9:30 & 10:30 p.m.-12 a.m.
phone 734-996-9080

Jimmy Pardo is highly regarded in the stand-up industry as a 'comic's comic' who's at the forefront of the multimedia movement, with his own podcast, TV & movie appearances and frequent use of video clips in his act. His podcast 'Never Not Funny' is the #2 paid podcast hosted by a comedian (second only to Ricky Gervais's). He has appeared on most major primetime talk shows, as well as sitcoms like 'Monk,' 'Becker' and 'That '70s Show.' He's one of the funniest acts to have crossed our stage--we feel bad for you if you miss him. $16 adv, $18 door

Octavia’s Brood

Sat., April 18, 4:30 p.m.

Octavia’s Brood: Science Fiction from Social Justice Movements, a recently published anthology that 2013 Kresge Artist Fellow Adrienne Maree Brown co-edited with Walidah Imarisha. Octavia Butler (1947-2006) crafted intense, transcendent fables which have as much to do with the future as with present and past. One of her best-known books, Kindred, tells of an African-American woman unexpectedly transported in time from California in 1976 to a plantation in the antebellum South. Entranced with sci-fi from an early age, Butler decided at 13 that she was going to make a living as a writer, despite her Aunt’s telling her, “Negroes can’t be writers.” Her work was imaginative writing, but firmly grounded in the world in which we live, and in the bodies and minds we inhabit, not only physically, but morally and spiritually. This book expands on her work and legacy. Free

Lightning Bolt

Sat., April 18, 8 p.m.

When Providence, R.I.’s art-noise kings Lightning Bolt perform with Metz opening up, it’s hard to emphasize enough how much you should be at this show. This might be one of the most brutal, fun, and brutally fun groups in existence. We’re talking Thee Oh Sees/Boredoms/Rush levels of super badassery here. They tend to set up on the ground wherever they play, and the audience morphs around them and is driven to ecstatic whirling frenzies. The two Brians (Chippendale on drums and vocals, and Gibson on bass) are geniuses, who’ve been doing this for 18 years. $12

Marc Maron

Sat., April 18, 8 p.m.
phone 248-399-2980

It would seem that famed podcaster, stand-up comedian, and sitcom star Marc Maron can do no wrong. Well, except for interviewing musicians on his podcast, because he gets so fawning and weird that it’s hard not to be embarrassed for the guy (come on — Ty Segall has to tell him who the Fall are, and did he really start to cry just because Mark Kramer spoke back to him?) Maron remains one of the most compelling, funny people alive, and there’s a reason he makes the big bucks now. You never know just where you’re going to go with him, so it’s almost on par with seeing Stewart Lee or Louis C.K. (though one of them doesn’t need some kid to tell him who the Fall are, and the other could not give a fuck). $30
