Danny Brown's Bruiser Thanksgiving V

Wed., Nov. 21, 7 p.m.

In the past year, Danny Brown announced a new record, underwent a dental makeover, made an appearance in the film White Boy Rick, and released an unofficial mixtape via the gaming service Twitch. Oh, and he gave some sound advice: “Never spend $70,000 on samples for an album that no one buys ‘cause you will be in debt.” As is the norm for Detroit’s favorite smile, Brown has cleared his holiday schedule to bring it all back home for his annual Bruisier Thanksgiving celebration. For its fifth spin, he’s taking it to the roller rink with Valee, Jpegmafia, Bruiser Brigade, Bearcat, Sam Austins, and others. $30

Kate Silvio: 'You can never go home again'

Through Nov. 24, 6 p.m.

In a new solo show, artist Kate Silvio — a woman “on the cusp of what society defines as ‘middle age,’” according to a press release — offers new works that reflect upon aging, self-acceptance, and motherhood. “How did I get here?” Silvio writes in an artist statement. “Was it an action or a reaction? The realization is that you may not be able to recall the exact moment when you made these decisions, but it must be you who made them.” The sculptor, a College for Creative Studies alum who now lives in Grand Rapids, creates multimedia works made from metals, rubber, felt, and wood, among other materials.

Jimi Hendrix Tribute Concert

Tue., Nov. 27, 6:30 p.m.

The “Purple Haze” lingers, even now, 48 years after the death of Jimi Hendrix. Known for being classic and ahead of his time and, tragically, taken too soon, in just seven years Hendrix carved his spot in rock ‘n’ roll history with his remarkable dexterity, musicianship, and charisma. On what would be the legendary guitarist’s 76th birthday, Jahi Zuri, Ras Kente and the Take No Prisoners Posse will take the Wright Museum stage for a funk-inspired take on Hendrix’s hits to honor the late icon. Bonus tribute trivia: Google Aretha Franklin and Jimi Hendrix to uncover the story behind Franklin’s “Save Me” and how Hendrix’ contributions were wiped from the final recording. free
