No Second Chances

Sat., April 25, 7 p.m.
phone 313-537-2560

Mack has just been released from prison for slinging drugs, now he back on the block, bumping around in his Denali on the Detroit streets. He falls hard for Ray, an innocent 20-something whose father is a biochemist working for the CDC. He’s the only person with the cure for ZGP, a lethal venereal disease that’s killing people like flies. Can Mack use his street skills to sling the cure and go from scourge to savior? Originally a story by street fiction author E. Scrill, the tale has been adapted for the stage by Scrill and Dujuan Johnson as No Second Chances. $25, $35 VIP

David Sedaris

Sat., April 25, 8 p.m.
phone 313-237-7464

Fifteen years ago Sedaris published his tome of autobiographical vignettes entitled Me Talk Pretty One Day and since then this particular writer has been what might be referred to as a “fangirl.” Sedaris’ writings explore his dealings with drug addiction, his sexuality, and his odd family. As always, his writings teeter between devastatingly sad and overwhelmingly hilarious. $36

Singing sensation Roxanna actually started out as a nurse in Toronto where she discovered the healing power of music. She sang to her patients, slowing realizing that music was her destiny. Now the songbird mixed flamenco with traditional Spanish and pop music, which fuses for an explosive live performance. If you’ve caught her special, “Exotica Live,” on Detroit Public Television, you know what a treat this show will be. (18+) $25

The Sonics

Sat., April 25, 8 p.m.
phone 313-833-9700

How is it possible for a bunch of dudes in their ’70s to blast such a fierce, joyous, and heavy variant of garage rock? Well, it helps if those dudes are some of the very originators of that music, as with the Pacific Northwest’s Sonics. “Have Love Will Travel,” “The Witch,” “Psycho,” and of course “Strychnine” — you’ve already heard these songs covered dozens of times (whether overtly or not), why not show up for this rare opportunity to hear the originals belt them out? $25 ADV - $30 DOS

The Sierra Club in partnership with the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and MI Rain Barrel is sponsoring a free rain barrel workshop on Detroit's beautiful river walk.

In addition to saving money on water bills, capturing and using rain water keeps polluted runoff from entering the region's aging sewer system which protects our rivers. Plus, watch an artist from the Oakland Avenue Artist Coalition transform a rain barrel into a work of art! Workshop is free; Rain Barrel $50
