Leave it to Tangent Gallery to keep it weird. The gallery has partnered with Detroit art collective Mesmerism Ink for a two-night mini-fest celebrating Detroit’s rock, experimental, and electronic scenes. The loaded lineup includes sounds by Zilched, Space Junkie, and Saint Hewitt, as well as DJs Phil Minnick, Jessica Peacock, and Ryan McCray. Artist vendors will be on site, Pink Plate Treats will serve food, and, to keep things extra trippy, everything will be drenched in cosmic lighting courtesy of the Bedroom Light Show and zjump. $5-$20

Nao

Sun., Jan. 27, 7 p.m.

The future is Nao. The 31-year-old soul singer spent her early years idolizing the likes of Missy Elliott and Brandy, as well as Detroit’s own Aretha Franklin for her transition from gospel choir singer to Queen of Soul. This diverse range of influences bleeds through into the East London singer’s sophomore release, 2018’s Saturn. Nao’s breathy falsetto dips and dives through tales of heartbreak and forgiveness — take the album’s lead single, “Make It Out Alive,” which sounds like its taking cues from Brandy and Monica’s R&B territorial banger, “The Boy is Mine.” We think that Nao is definitely on the right track. Xavier Omar is also on the bill. $25-$30

Though it shuttered as a school in 2016, Detroit’s historic Jefferson School is getting a new lease on life, at least for now. For its biggest pop-up to date, Vans will host a four-day free event with an indoor skate park, live music (featuring Thundercat, Protomartyr, and Amber Mark on Thursday, and Danny Brown, Joyce Manor, and Kelsey Lu on Friday), and workshops (like a modular synth workshop from Ghostly International darling Matthew Dear). In addition, there will be a sprawling marketplace featuring local vendors and work from Detroit artists like Niagara, Jay Howell, Greg Hunt, Ellen Rutt, and more. Free
