Trip Metal Fest

Fri., May 26, 6 p.m., Sat., May 27, 6 p.m. and Sun., May 28, 6 p.m.

It was hands-down our single favorite musical event of last year, and the Wolf Eyes-curated Trip Metal Fest returns to El Club for this Memorial Day weekend with a stellar lineup. Self-described as a celebration of “twisted and beguiling avant-garde music and performance, running congruent with Movement,” this year the fest is a super-smart mixture of local and international talent. Pharmakon, Body/Head, Container, Aaron Dilloway — wow, this is seriously so good. We’ve been waiting to see Body/Head (the duo of Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon and percussionist Bill Nace) for years, and Pharmakon is so crazily adored right now, and for great reason. The local bookings are just as crucial. After all, it’s members of Princess Dragonmom who helped to start Noise Camp and thus to usher in the golden age of Michigan noise music some 40 years ago, so kudos for including them. $20-$200

Lucky Garden

Fri., May 26, 7 p.m.

You may have noticed the larger-than-life floral murals of Detroit artist Ouizi cropping up around town. For her new exhibition, the artist has scaled down somewhat, creating an installation of more than 40 new works, which incorproate colored pencil and gouache. According to a press release, the title of the show (lifted from a common name for Chinese restaraunts in the United States) is an homage to her Chinese-American heritage, which she further explores through her use of imagery. The show runs alongside an exhibition of Movement's visual artist in residence 1010's work (see our art feature this week for more info). Free

Oddisee

Fri., May 26, 8 p.m.

Amir Mohamed spent years as a visual artist before realizing that his true passion was hip-hop. Since then, there’s been no turning back. Beginning his career as a member of Washington D.C.’s Low Budget Crew, Mohamed — under the stage name, Oddisee — has blossomed into a true artist. He’s recorded with DJ Jazzy Jeff, and this show is a stop on his world tour to promote his album The Iceberg, which was just released in February. If you’re interested in more than his music, there will also be a meet and greet and Q&A after his performance. $15

Global Fridays: ODDISEE (hip hop) + Q&A

Fri., May 26, 8 p.m.

The hypnotic lure of the beats led Maryland’s Amir Mohamed to abandon visual art for hip hop. Performing as part of Washington, D.C.’s Low Budget Crew, the Sudanese American artist now called Oddisee recorded with DJ Jazzy Jeff, who returned the favor by mixing Oddisee’s 2006 solo debut release, Foot in the Door (Halftooth). Oddisee’s most recent release, 2015’s The Good Fight, is driven by social commentary and retro soul. The concert will be followed by a Q&A and meet & greet. Presented in partnership with We Found Hip Hop. $10 for AANM members, $15 for general public
