'Hell on Wheels' art show at Rust Belt Market

Fri., Aug. 18 and Sat., Aug. 19

Hell on Wheels during Dream Cruise weekend is a show at Rust Belt Market in Ferndale, featuring strong female Detroit artists whose art revolves around cars and the female perspective. These women are role models for young girls (and old) — who are just starting out or just struggling to find their place in the art world. These fierce ladies have been revving up for the summer show “Hell on Wheels”, August 18-19th 2017, just in time for Dream Cruise, the biggest car show of the summer!

Featuring top female Detroit artists: Jacx (Jaclyn Schanes), Niagara, and Debbie Sipes. With additional sculpture, art and classic cars on display by Rust Belt resident Chris Gorski, Liv Art, Opie, and hand-made car artist/sculptor Keith Coleman.

Music performances by amazing up-comer, Josie Pace, playing the kick-off party on Friday night. Then on Saturday performances by Jacx and a special set by the femme fatales of garage rock, StunGun.

“Hell on Wheels” show in Ferndale at Rust Belt Market’s, August 18th 2017, 5pm-9pm (VIP, Kickoff, press, sponsor night) and August 19th, 2017, 12pm-7pm during the cruise. Produced by IconicaArt.com.

Hell on Wheels

Fri., Aug. 18, 5-9 p.m. and Sat., Aug. 19, 12-7 p.m.

August Alsina

Fri., Aug. 18, 7 p.m.

Though he may be roped into some recent Usher-based drama, that can’t stop seductive R&B sweetheart August Alsina from doing what he does best — producing sweaty, grind-worthy declarations of sex, love, and hard knocks. Raised in New Orleans with a torn and tragic family history, it’s no wonder that Alsina’s music scratches far beyond the surface of traditional hip-hop. A heartfelt success story (tabloid B.S. aside) Alsina’s last studio record 2015’s This Thing Called Life debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard Charts, and gave rise to five straight fire singles including “Why I Do It” (Feat. Lil Wayne.) Doors open at 7 p.m; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451; thefillmoredetroit.com; Tickets start at $33. $33
