Since 2006, the nonprofit Detroit Experience Factory has helped connect locals and visitors alike to Detroit and its story by leading more than 100,000 people through experiential tours of the city. To help DXF continue its work, fellow nonprofit Planet Ant has enlisted the sounds of Kaylan Waterman, who makes chillwave as Vespre, as well as Dave Toennies, of Detroit/Windsor’s Border Patrol, who dives into Loudon Wainwright III territory with conversational folk, and Arizona transplant Brian Gottshall’s project Dos Argentés, which could be the lovechild of Bon Iver and Vance Joy. The event includes appetizers, Stroh’s beer, and access to a silent auction with donations provided by community partners.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 15, at Planet Ant; 2320 Caniff St., Hamtramck; 313-365-4948; planetant.com. Tickets are $30-$35.
