Summer at the MOCAD Homestead series: Raphael Saadiq and Tunde Olaniran

Sun., July 22, 7 p.m.

If the name Raphael Saadiq doesn’t strike an immediate chord it’s probably because he has become synonymous with his multi-platinum R&B group Tony! Toni! Toné! Saadiq is regarded as one of the preeminent R&B artists of the ‘90s, having produced songs for D’Angelo, TLC, and John Legend (to name a few). Just last year, Saadiq teamed up with Mary J. Blige for the song “Mighty River” from the film Mudbound, for which they received an Academy Award nomination for best original song. In a special performance for MOCAD, Saadiq will share the stage with Flint-based artist and activist Tunde Olaniran. $25

Wanda Jackson

Sun., July 22, 8 p.m.

At 80 years old, Wanda Jackson is still the reigning Queen of Rockabilly. Known for her distinctive searing voice and steadfast spirit, Jackson held her own during a time when rock ’n’ roll was an especially male-dominated genre. A true trailblazer, Jackson shared the bill with Elvis Presley in her early years, and in 1960 snagged a spot on the Top 40 with her version of Presley’s “Let’s Have a Party.” She would later explore country and gospel, but returned to her roots in 2011 when Jack White teamed up with the singer for a string of collaborations on his label, Third Man Records. Fittingly, TMR's Craig Brown Band rounds out the bill. $23-$25

"In The Heights"

Sat., July 21, 8 p.m. and Sun., July 22, 8 p.m.

Before Hamilton, Lin-Manuel Miranda gave the world the Tony Award-winning musical In the Heights — a cultural story centered around New York City’s Washington Heights neighborhood and its Hispanic community. The story follows the lives of bodega owner Usnavi and his beautician girlfriend Vanessa. Then there’s Nina and Benny — a second love story defined by the price and obstacles of achieving a higher education. Reimagined by the Detroit Actors Theatre Company, In the Heights fuses freestyle rap with merengue dance for a multicultural exploration of love, family, and growing up. free

Alice Liddell & Dancers at Science Gallery's Hustle Exhibit

Sat., July 21, 5-6:30 p.m. and Sun., July 22, 3-4:30 p.m.
info@detroit.sciencegallery.com

@ Science Gallery Detroit, 1001 Woodward Ave
This dance performance explores the concept of effort through the lens of working hard without reaping results. Many of the systems we operate in have tangible ways to measure our success. For example, in school, our grades on exams reflect our hard work and often garner a reward, recognizable to others and ourselves. However, once we are removed from this system, we are no longer guaranteed results from our efforts, and we must reconcile with the dissolution of this familiar structure. There will be two performances per day: 7.21.18 | 5:15pm-5:35pm, 6:00pm-6:20pm 7.22.18 | 3:15pm-3:35pm, 4:00pm-4:20pm Free
