Passion Pit

Tue., Jan. 16, 7 p.m.

It’s hard to believe that the meticulously crafted sonic musings of indietronica darlings, Passion Pit, come down to, well, a single darling. Michael Angelakos is Passion Pit. Since Angelako’s debut album Manners in 2009, the “Sleepyhead” singer has refined his cartoonish catharsis without compromising his helium-high octave climbing vocals. This tour will support Angelakos’ Tremendous Sea of Love, a record he self-released on Twitter last year. But Angelako didn’t want to go it alone, though, so Chris Hartz, Aaron Harrison Folb, and Giuliano Pizzulo will join the singer for the upcoming tour. $30+

The Bodyguard

Tuesdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m., Saturdays, Sundays, 2 p.m. and Sundays, 7:30 p.m. Continues through Jan. 28

If you’re not still shook from 1992’s romantic thriller The Bodyguard, then you might want to check your pulse. The film, which stars the late Whitney Houston, birthed one of the most powerful soundtracks of all time. Thanks to a masterful adaptation by Academy Award winner (Birdman) Alexander Dinelaris, The Bodyguard has been reborn for Broadway. Grammy Award-nominee and R&B star Deborah Cox will take on the role of Houston’s Rachel Marron. Though the cast has changed you can count on hearing irresistible classics including one of the best-selling songs of all time, “I Will Always Love You.” $39+

American Landscape

Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through April 8

You don’t often hear about the LGBTQ+ civil rights fight in the context of Arab peoples, so it’s especially interesting to see the museum offer this show. At the center of it all is artist Nabil Mousa, an artist born in Syria but raised in a conservative Christian household in the United States. His willingness to use art as a way to comment on the religious and political has met with some controversy, such as a work of his that was banned from a public building at Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize two years ago. But the new show of his art is filled with the color orange, which Mousa uses to symbolize fear. ("Orange alert," anyone?) Runs through April 8, 2018.

In 1967, Flint Mayor Floyd McCree, resigned his appointed position, stating, “I refuse to live an equal opportunity lie.” He did so in protest of the city commission’s defeat of an open housing ordinance. For despite his status as the first African American mayor of a large American city, McCree inhabited what had become one of the most racially segregated cities in America. Using objects and images from Sloan Museum’s collection, this exhibition examines the housing segregation that characterized Flint’s residential development, as well as efforts to wrest the city free from discriminatory housing practices. $9 Adults, $8 Seniors 60+, $6 Youth ages 2-11
