Artist Gary Grimshaw designed posters that fit the bill perfectly. FREE

phone 313-833-9700

Honestly, it’s kind of hard to truly classify the experimental rock band Downtown Brown into a singular genre, so we’ll let them define themselves. “Looney music for open minded individuals with a sense of humor.” Sounds about right. Plus, songs titles like “A Poot in My Boot” and album titles like I Love Burgers: Super-Size Edition make it hard to argue with that description. $6
