Detroit Music Awards

Fri., April 26, 6 p.m.

Of course, it’s an honor just to be nominated, but let’s be real — winning a Detroit Music Award is pretty fucking cool, too. The annual awards show is now in its 28th iteration and will dole out more than 70 awards in 11 musical categories. This year’s performers include Frankie Ballard, Mike Skill of the Romantics & friends, Shortly (another previous Metro Times artist to watch pick), as well as an Aretha Franklin Gospel tribute led by Carl B. Phillips and friends and a Motown tribute by the Mosaic Youth Theatre of Detroit. Longstanding Ann Arbor folk outfit the RFD Boys, as well as advocate and poet John Sinclair, will be honored with 2019’s distinguished achievement awards and Big City Rhythm & Blues Magazine will also be recognized for its contributions. $25-$30

What about us, P!NK? The badass acrobatic diva better known as P!NK was forced to reschedule last year’s Detroit performance due to illness, proving that not even one of the world’s best-selling artists is immune to such mundane inconveniences. To make up for it, she’ll get the party started in Detroit with her imaginative aerial performance and inclusive message for two nights — just a few weeks after releasing new music in the form of the Grey’s Anatomy intro-sounding “Walk Me Home.” While P!NK stans await the forthcoming Hurts 2B Human, y’all can catch her flipping and dangling from wires as she delivers an 18-year career’s worth of cathartic pop gold. $88+

Sun., April 28, 7 p.m.

Death is forever. Nearly 50 years after brothers David, Dannis, and Bobby Hackney formed an unassuming and incredibly raw rock ’n’ roll band as teenagers, they are now internationally revered as punk legends and luminaries. Largely inspired by fellow Detroit rockers MC5, the Stooges, and Alice Cooper, Death created what we now refer to as proto-punk and are celebrating an important anniversary. Ten years ago, the world got hip to Death’s seminal LP, ...For the Whole World to See, a good 35 years after it was released thanks to a reissue from Chicago indie label Drag City. Death will perform as part of a special celebratory string of performances and invites fellow give-no-fucks punks of Timmy’s Organism as support. $20-$25

Ferndale Spring Fever

Thu., April 25, 8 p.m., Fri., April 26, 8 p.m. and Sat., April 27, 8 p.m.

Metro Detroit has a reputation for organizing tiny music festivals that pack a big punch. We also have a reputation for complaining about our severe and totally justifiable case of spring fever. In an attempt to free us of our winter doldrums with sonic treats for our eardrums is Ferndale’s Spring Fever music festival. The rock-centric festival takes place over the course of three nights across four venues (all of which are within .3 square miles of one another) with more than 30 bands taking their respective stages. Spring Fever will host national headliners, including the Black Lips, Born Ruffians, Speedy Ortiz, Tokyo Police Club, Murder by Death, and She Wants Revenge. Meanwhile, Prude Boys, Tart, Siamese, and Handgrenades are among the nearly two dozen local artists slated to perform. $25-$70
