Yes, Weed Can: A Musical Comedy

Fri., April 20

This isn’t Reefer Madness — Yes, Weed Can: A Musical Comedy is all about Tammy (played by Kaitlyn Valor Bourque). Who the eff is Tammy? Well, she’s a bit of a modern-day heroine who is fixing to dismantle America’s takedown of our precious cannabis with a few other brave tokers. In other words, Tammy is the hero we deserve. The show originally debuted in 2014 but has returned for an extended run because the fight for legalization continues — so, why not laugh about it? $11-$20

The Year of The Tiger: 1968 Opening Reception

Fri., April 20, 6 p.m.
,

OK. So, the Detroit Tigers are off to a rocky season, but let’s take it back to 1968 — “the comeback season.” The assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. and the Vietnam War were among two pivotal events that would shape the nation the same year the Detroit Tigers won the World Series Championship. To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the team’s historic win, The Year of the Tiger: 1968 aims to tell the tale of how a baseball victory gave Detroit something to celebrate despite the turbulent national climate $75-$100

Hunx and His Punx

Fri., April 20, 8 p.m.

While it might be hard to peg San Francisco-based sensations Hunx and His Punx, Hunx (real name Seth Bogart) and his respective Punx have made some iteration of flirty doo-wop punk for at least a decade. They’ve become a bit of a cult favorite — which is why they are a perfect pre-show party for filmmaker John Waters' annual Detroit birthday bash. "A Very John Waters Birthday" continues with Waters offering his live commentary of Serial Mom featuring a performance by L7 on Saturday, April 21 and a live commentary for Desperate Living followed by a performance by frequent Waters collaborator Mink Stole on Sunday, April 22. $15-$20

Psy Jazz 13 with John Sinclair

Fri., April 20, 9 p.m.

When you think of poet and activist John Sinclair you probably think of jazz cabbage — not jazz music. But the 76-year-old Flint native and iconic marijuana advocate is celebrating his 4/20 by delivering some high-flying psychedelic jazz with help from percussionist David Hurley. You can do celebratory bong rips any old time, so why not spend weed-Christmas with cannabis’ own Kris Kringle? Trip out with the godfather of legalization and remember — toke (and pass) responsibly. $5
