We know the free drinks and good music at these gallery openings can lead to long lines and a packed venue, but the globally recognized “Fight Club of the art scene” is worth the wait. Six artists split into two teams compete in a Marvel comic book-inspired live painting competition. Armed with only acrylic paint or black markers, the teams have 90 minutes to fill a blank canvas up to 25-feet tall. The final products are a unique collaboration of Detroit’s artistic styles and a look into the methodical chaos of creating within a time limit. free

Monica & Ashanti

Fri., June 23, 8 p.m.

The boy might be hers, but Monica’s agreed to share a tour with the one and only Ashanti. Monica has been making music since the ’90s (and she’s only gotten better with time), and she’s had success with reality television, including on The Voice, where she served as Cee Lo Green’s mentor. Ashanti has been working since she was a kid. Dancing professionally, acting in Disney’s 1989 film Polly, and getting discovered by P. Diddy’s Bad Boy Records when she was 16, it’s clear that she’s never taken a break. She’s come a long way since the days of “Foolish,” and she recently appeared with Ja Rule on The Hamilton Mixtape, but this show with Monica is sure to delight ’90s Top 40 R&B fans. $36-$56

From Oakland, Calif., we have the highly rated Rays, and if you’re in the mood for a band that cites the Modern Lovers as an inspiration then here is basically what you are doing tonight. They have a lot in common with the plethora of exceptional Australian bands that hang out around Mikey Young, who mastered their eponymous debut album, that just came out in March. Rays will be joined by Feelings, who will play the UFO Factory for the first time in a long time. They’ll also be joined by Kalamazoo up-and-comer Erik Nervous as well as the always wonderful Beauticians. $8
