Mick Jenkins

Sun., Aug. 30, 7 p.m.
phone 313-961-8961

Just when you think hip-hop has been snuffed out by a haze of Auto-tune and Internet rappers, Jenkins bursts onto the scene with content heavy-lyrics and live instrumentation. Raised on the largely segregated southside of Chicago, Jenkins’ searing lyricism reflects on societal truths and the human condition with little regard for commercial viability and “likes.” His latest EP, titled Waves is a nine-track gem that’s more melody driven and radio-friendly than his previous releases, but still just as determined to deliver a lasting message.Parisian electronic DJ and wunderkind, STWO, co-headlines. $18

Casey Abrams

Sun., Aug. 30, 7:30 p.m.
phone 734-761-1451

American Idol finalist Abrams is a rare case if you consider the fact that his reality TV fame may actually distract from his real-life talent. Abrams is an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, playing electric bass, acoustic guitar, drums, Wurlitzer, and a variety of classical instruments with ease on his debut release. His radio hits may sounds like your average over produced pop-rock, but his live performances reveal Abrams in his element, without any of the hype machinery. $20

Toronto solo project turned four-piece band the Fake Palms brings their jagged, reverb-heavy noise pop to PJ’s alongside Detroit bands Palaces and Tart for a night of hypnotic rock and electro.
