Aminé

Tue., Nov. 20, 7 p.m.

When 24-year-old alternative rapper Aminé sported white face for his 2017 video for “REDMERCEDES,” he knew he would rattle some cages. And when he took aim at President Donald Trump during a television performance by spouting the amended verse “You can never make America great again, all you ever did was make this country hate again,” he wasn’t trying to make a statement. Aminé, the Portland-based marketing major and multiplatinum artist, is more concerned with creating joyful and mischievous rap, as evidenced by his fullyformed sophomore record OnePointFive. Check out the visuals for “Campfire,” or literally anything he has done, because Aminé gives Dave Chapelle a run for his money with his wry absurdist comedy. $25

You can’t keep this elf on the shelf. OK, so Will Ferrell may not be reprising his role as everyone’s favorite oversized non-elf elf, Buddy, but returning this year to the Fox Theatre is ELF: The Musical, a fresh take on Buddy’s journey from the North Pole to the Big Apple in search of his birth father, true identity, and some dang spaghetti and maple syrup. Inspired by the 2003 new Christmas classic, ELF: The Musical is a classic in its own right with a slew of original songs, holiday hijinks, and lots and lots of sugar. $35+

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.

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

Six new floats will make their debut alongside crowd favorites, all leading up to an appearance by the man, the myth, the jolly legend — Santa friggin’ Clause. CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz will serve as the parade’s grand marshal and will be joined by Disney Channel star Sofia Wylie, former Detroit Tiger Jack Morris, Boston Marathon winner Desiree Linden, and Broadway’s Aladdin star Korie Lee Blossey. Members of Aretha Franklin’s family will also join the parade with a performance from Cass Tech High School Marching Band. free

Craig Ferguson

Sun., Nov. 25, 8 p.m.

Great Scott! Though it has been just four years since the Scottish American comedian stepped away from The Late Late Show desk, former host, \king of quirk, and flirt Craig Ferguson has found a new, albeit, transient stage. Since taking his U.S. citizenship test on air, Ferguson has fleshed out a stand-up routine full of work-related celebrity encounters (including the time he pissed off Kate Winslet), as well as snarky, quick-witted observations on everything from unbelievable headlines, his struggle for political correctness, and that time Fabio got speared by a goose while riding a rollercoaster. $39.50+
