Jay-Z

Sat., Nov. 18

We might have more than 99 problems in 2017 (cough, cough irony) but superstar, mogul, and Beyonce’s husband, Jay-Z, is not one of them. In fact, Jay-Z has been nothing but a TIDAL wave of game-changing good vibes since blowing our minds back in 1995. Now one of the best-selling musicians of all time (his latest, 4:44, debuted at number one, his 14th to date) Jay-Z is doing more than watching the throne. He fucking owns it. $95

Black History 101 Mobile Museum

Sat., Nov. 18, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
,

If it’s one thing we know about the Museum for Contemporary Art of Detroit is that they do everything outside of the box. This is true of the Black History 101 Mobile Museum, which will be rolling through the MOCAD for one day only. Founded by Khalid el-Hakim, this award-winning collection features memorabilia and artifacts not found in traditional exhibitions, spanning the entire course of black history from trans-Atlantic slave trade to hip-hop and the civil rights movement. Khalid will be on hand to discuss the importance of the preservation of black history and lead a discussion about race and social justice. suggested donation

Mini Moog Fest

Sat., Nov. 18, 12-4 p.m.

Calling all synth nerds! If the warbling haunt of the Theremin gets you going or if you can make a case for why Aphex Twin is more prolific than the Beatles, then the name Robert Moog probably means something to you. The Ann Arbor District Library invites us to celebrate the Godfather of commercial analog synthesizers with hands-on synth demonstrations, live performances by North Coast Modular Collective, and others, as well as an opportunity to talk to fellow synth-ophiles on how to concoct your own synth-ony. Free

Joywave

Sat., Nov. 18, 7 p.m.

Indie outfit Joywave could not be more appropriately named. The synth-pop and bass-heavy five-piece could be the less ambient, more erratic little brother of French pop band Phoenix. Nevertheless, Joywave feels lovingly like a band that will forever be on festival dockets. After their breakthrough collab with Big Data on their hit track “Dangerous” in 2013, Joywave earned some skin in the game. Following a tour with Young the Giant and Cold War Kids, Joywave is taking the wheel and will be dishing out tracks from their sophomore record, Content, released this past spring. $18

She Wants Revenge

Sat., Nov. 18, 7 p.m.

It’s been six years since broody staccato masters of seduction She Wants Revenge released new music. But that doesn’t mean their return to the stage (they were on a brief hiatus) won’t be fresh (in a totally goth way, of course). After teasing a reunion in 2016 following a resurgence of popularity after an old track found new life on the FX series American Horror Story: Hotel, they’re back and bringing with them their Halloween-forever vibes and a slew of B-sides to appease moody fog-machine rendezvous. $25-30

American Landscape

Mondays-Sundays, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Continues through April 8, 2018

You don’t often hear about the LGBTQ+ civil rights fight in the context of Arab peoples, so it’s especially interesting to see the museum offer this show. At the center of it all is artist Nabil Mousa, an artist born in Syria but raised in a conservative Christian household in the United States. His willingness to use art as a way to comment on the religious and political has met with some controversy, such as a work of his that was banned from a public building at Grand Rapids’ ArtPrize two years ago. But the new show of his art is filled with the color orange, which Mousa uses to symbolize fear. ("Orange alert," anyone?) Runs through April 8, 2018.
