Explosions In the Sky

Wed., Oct. 16, 7 p.m.
Masonic Temple 500 Temple St., Detroit Midtown

Buy from Ticketmaster$29.50+

For 20 years, Texas-bred quartet Explosions in the Sky has been scoring films, television, and, at least for some of us, our most personally cinematic moments. (Like, say, going to second base in 2008.) After landing a song from their third record, The Earth Is Not a Cold Dead Place, on the soundtrack for Friday Night Lights, the band — made up of Chris Hrasky, Michael James, Munaf Rayani, and Mark Smith — has continued to make lush and soaring instrumentals fit for the beginning or ending of any number of life events. (Like, say, the dissolve between the person you went to second base with.) Anyway, the band hasn’t released anything since 2016’s The Wilderness, but in honor of its 20th-anniversary tour, they’ve re-issued some of their early records and re-released some old merch designs. 313- 832-7100

Returning to push jazz to the limit is Edgefest — the four-day experimental avant jazz fest produced by Kerrytown Music House, which makes its return to Ann Arbor with a roster of artists carrying the torch for the improvisational and collaborative genre. The award-winning fest, which was founded in 1997, will once again host dozens of players and composer-performers from all over the country, as well as their ensembles, many of whom will be joined by Michigan area performers. This year will see performances that pay homage to West Coast-inspired music with performances by by Oluyemi Thomas’ Positive Knowledge, William Hooker Remembrance trio, Myra Melford Combo, Tad Weed Tribute, Cycle of Restoration, Andrew Bishop’s New and Used, Bobby Bradford and Vinny Golia Quartet, and others.

Humble and Human: Impressionist Era Treasures from the Albright-Knox Art Gallery and the Detroit Institute of Arts, an Exhibition in Honor of Ralph C. Wilson, Jr.

Tuesdays-Saturdays. Continues through Jan. 5
Detroit Institute of Arts 5200 Woodward Ave., Detroit Midtown

If you haven’t had a chance to behold the beauty of the Detroit Institute of Arts’ new Impressionist-era exhibition, there’s still time. The museum announced last week that it will now run through Sunday, Jan. 5, 2020. The show, which opened in June, was originally supposed to come down in October. The museum says it made the decision to keep it open due to near-record attendance: more than 100,000 people visited the exhibition in its first 13 weeks, and 200,000 are expected by the new closing date, which will make it the highest-attended exhibition at the DIA in nearly 20 years. The show features 44 works by Impressionist and Post-Impressionist painters like Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Vincent van Gogh, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and more. Many of the works on display had never been shown in Detroit. It honors the late art collector Ralph C. Wilson, Jr., the founder and owner of the NFL’s Buffalo Bills who lived in the Detroit area for much of his life. 313-833-7900
