Audiotree Music Festival

Sun., Sept. 23, 12 p.m.

He may be music journalists’ most divisive subject and modern-day existentialism’s poster boy, but one thing is true of God’s Favorite Customer — Father John Misty, aka Josh Tillman is probably on LSD. But this rebellious spirit is just what Audiotree, the Chicago-based studio session company is all about, which is why the self-medicated prophet of self-awareness has been chosen to headline the 6th iteration of the Audiotree Music Festival in Kalamazoo. FJM will be joined by fellow headliners Local Natives for the two-day event, which will include performances by Diet Cig, Real Estate, Blitzen Trapper, Post Animal, Michigander, and more. $45-$135

DIY Street Fair

Sun., Sept. 23, 11 a.m.

You can do it yourself without doing it alone thanks to Ferndale’s beloved DIY Street Fair. For 11 years, this crafty blowout has celebrated innovation, collaboration, and the beautiful minds of metro Detroit’s most ambitious makers. Though the focus of the three-day, completely free fair is the marketplace where visitors can snag some one-of-a-kind wares, DIY Street Fair is a party. Expect to be tempted by an array of craft beer, wine, and cocktails poured by local favorites, as well as a slew of delectable edibles supplied by food trucks. Brother Son, The True Blue, Too Many Zoos, Ryan Dillaha and the Miracle Men, and Tunde Olaniran are among the festival’s 20-plus performances. free

“Star Wars and the Power of Costume”

Avenue Q

Mondays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 7

Boasting one of the most unique warnings in Broadway history, Avenue Q wants you to know that it is full of puppet sex — full-on puppet sex. The debaucherous “triple crown” (that’s best musical, best book, and best score) Tony Award-winning musical spins PBS into XXX territory. The show follows puppet Princeton, a broke college graduate and his search for purpose. Each of Avenue Q’s 11 puppet characters is animated and voiced by actors in full view of the audience, making for a four-dimensional theatrical experience. Avenue Q is not just raunchy — it’s delightfully inappropriate. Want proof? Catch musical numbers “If You Were Gay,” “The Internet Is for Porn,” and “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist.” $17-$28
