Thu., April 27, 7:30 p.m.

NØMADS, comprised of Nathan Lithgow and Garth Macaleavey, are a two-piece Brooklyn, N.Y.-based noise rock band that definitely knows how to make fantastic, hard music. They’ve been releasing a song a month since the start of 2017, and will release the full 12-song album, Phobiac, in early 2018. So far, what they’ve released has been rad as hell. Every song is named after a specific phobia, and the songs perfectly encompass what the fears are all rooted in. I mean, sounds like it’ll be a fun show for sure. $7

The Hinterlands’ The Radicalization Process

Wed., April 26, 8 p.m. and Thu., April 27, 8 p.m.
phone 313-454-1756

This wildly successful work is an original project for the Hinterlands and now in its third run — the first two sold out completely. The stage show, which is set to a live score performed on analog synthesizers and “everyday objects,” tells the swirling story of the radical left in the 1960s and ’70s. On paper, the story might seem to get confusing, as multiple timelines runs concurrently throughout the performance that is interwoven with shocking imagery. The play starts out as protagonists discover the archives of a forgotten revolutionary and begin to unravel both real and imagined histories. $10-$30
