River Spirit

Sat., March 23, 4 p.m.

River Spirit's latest, Me I Fall, came out at the end of January. There's lots of textural space in each song, allowing every guitar riff, vocal note, and drum pattern to shine, or to sigh, or to flutter, or flair. The rhythms might be R&B, but the guitars are funk, while the vocals are neo-soul and the time-signatures are adventurous, or even nervy, all too eager to make some sharp left turns or sudden jumps. Often, it is, if nothing else, an entrancing listen.

Leikeli47

Sun., March 24, 7 p.m.

Leikeli grew up in the heart of Brooklyn, by way of Virginia. From an early age, she learned the ways that her body and voice could be instruments in themselves. She began experimenting with whatever objects she could find around her to transform into musical instruments — plastic bags, keys, chairs, shoestrings, zippers. This autonomy and experimentation is what shaped her style as a producer and artist. $20

Tilted Axes Detroit: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars

Sat., March 23, 1 p.m. and Sun., March 24, 1 p.m.

tiltedaxes@peppergreenmedia.com

What’s better than one guitar? Try 18 guitar-wielding, roving musicians parading through metro Detroit. Founded by Detroit native and New York-based guitarist and composer Patrick Grant, Tilted Axes is a culmination of Grant’s music manifesto. Having worked with composers John Cage and Philip Glass, along with Robert Fripp as part of the King Crimson leader’s Guitar Circle project, Grant’s Tilted Axes promises a guitar-based orchestra with plenty of rock, noise, and a heavy dose of psychedelia. Grant will celebrate Tilted Axes’ return to Detroit with a trio of public performances starting at Third Man Records, The Henry Ford Museum, and will join the tenth iteration of the Marche du Nain Rouge. Free or with museum admission
