Robocop! The Musical

Thu., Aug. 17, Fri., Aug. 18, Sat., Aug. 19, Sun., Aug. 20, Mon., Aug. 21, Tue., Aug. 22, Wed., Aug. 23, Thu., Aug. 24, Fri., Aug. 25 and Sat., Aug. 26

The 1987 sci-fi cult classic RoboCop is already pretty campy, with its tongue-in-cheek look at a corporate-run future dystopia and stop-motion robots. How could it possibly get any campier? Simple: Make it a musical. Robocop! The Musical re-imagines the story of quite possibly the world's most well-known cyborg crime fighter, featuring a live house band performing originals like "Armchair Nightmare" and "I Don't Know (How To Love A Robot)." $20+

Featuring top female Detroit artists: Jacx (Jaclyn Schanes), Niagara, and Debbie Sipes. With additional sculpture, art and classic cars on display by Rust Belt resident Chris Gorski, Liv Art, Opie, and hand-made car artist/sculptor Keith Coleman.

August Alsina

Fri., Aug. 18, 7 p.m.

Though he may be roped into some recent Usher-based drama, that can’t stop seductive R&B sweetheart August Alsina from doing what he does best — producing sweaty, grind-worthy declarations of sex, love, and hard knocks. Raised in New Orleans with a torn and tragic family history, it’s no wonder that Alsina’s music scratches far beyond the surface of traditional hip-hop. A heartfelt success story (tabloid B.S. aside) Alsina’s last studio record 2015’s This Thing Called Life debuted at No. 14 on the Billboard Charts, and gave rise to five straight fire singles including “Why I Do It” (Feat. Lil Wayne.) Doors open at 7 p.m; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-961-5451; thefillmoredetroit.com; Tickets start at $33. $33
