Angel Olsen

Fri., Nov. 15, 7 p.m.
Royal Oak Music Theatre 318 W. Fourth St., Royal Oak Downtown Royal Oak

Buy from Ticketmaster$29.50+


On her latest record, All Mirrors, Angel Olsen took a trip down the rabbit hole with producer and frequent collaborator John Congleton, along with a 12-piece string section. Inhibitions to the wind, the Asheville, North Carolina-based singer delivers a stunning, theatrical, and grandiose fifth entry in her eclectic catalog. A far cry from the sparse and intimate bedroom folk of Olsen’s 2012 debut, Half Way Home, and a few steps to the left from 2016’s shimmery, guitar-focused My Woman, All Mirrors, akin to a delightfully hellish mood ring, pushes her tumbling vibrato to soaring heights. When Olsen spoke with Metro Times in 2017, she suggested that feelings are not always based in reality. “You [try] to take your doubt or your depression or your happiness or everything that inspires you and make something out of it that is an example of the pinnacle of that feeling, you know?” We hear you, Angel. 248-399-2980

I'm OK: A Tribute to Daniel Johnston

Fri., Nov. 15, 7 p.m.
Magic Stick 4120 Woodward Ave., Detroit Midtown


Beloved Austin-based singer-songwriter and master archivist Daniel Johnston is getting a proper Detroit sonic salute. The prolific artist died of a heart attack in September at the age of 58, and was known for his endearing body of work as much as he was known for his ongoing struggles with mental and physical health — namely schizophrenia and bipolar disorder — as his work was an extension of his struggles. Just listen to fan favorite “True Love Will Find You in the End,” on which Johnston’s fragile voice fights to believe every word. He also really loved the Beatles and McDonald’s. (All this can be gleaned by watching the unflinching 2005 documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston.) Detroit’s “I’m OK: A Tribute to Daniel Johnston” will offer performances by Matt Milia, Stef Chura, Ben Collins (Minihorse), Anna Burch, Marlon Morton (Remnose), Greater Alexander, Libby Decamp, Craig Brown, and Jesse Shepherd-Bates (Handgrenades). A portion of the proceeds will benefit Johnston’s Hi How Are You Project, which aims to provide mental health awareness by funding various art and music events. (313) 833-9700
