While Kanye West is off galavanting around the country with his Sunday Service, claiming to be some MAGA-hat-wearing conduit of divine power or whatever, Maryland rapper IDK is conducting a different type of sermon. For his major label debut, Is He Real? the former incarcerated tutor and barber muses on the existence of God amid daily tragedy and injustice, an over-sexualized society, and the death of his mother, who died of AIDS in 2016, with contributions from Tyler The Creator, Pusha-T, JID, and DMX. Conceptual in its composition and intimate and challenging though its songwriting, Much of the record’s spiritual struggle can be reduced to the opening monologue delivered by a child when asked what they think happens when we die: “You wake up from your dream because God isn’t fucking real.” Kemba is also on the bill.

David Sedaris

Wed., Oct. 23, 7:30 p.m.
Fisher Theatre 3011 W. Grand Blvd, Detroit Midtown

No personal opinion, observation, or neurotic musing is off limits for prolific humorist and nonfiction writer David Sedaris, who, since taking to NPR in 1992 to read his now famous essay “Santaland Diaries,” during which he details his stint as a department store elf during Christmas, has made life a whole lot easier to laugh at. Though, in recent years, Sedaris has come under scrutiny due in part to writer Alex Heard, who fact-checked some of Sedaris’ work in 2007 only to discover some of his published essays involved exaggerated accounts with fictitious characters. Fast forward to Sedaris’ 11th collection of essays, 2018’s Calypso (which reveals that Sedaris owns not one but three pairs of culottes), and no one seems to care much as to how fanciful his memories of personal accounts might be. Oh, and he’s never used Twitter, a fact that should automatically make him better than 99.9 percent of the writing world. 313-972-1135

This year marks the 60th anniversary of Motown — the musical institution that changed the world. While Detroit has been celebrating this milestone anniversary all year long, it is the five-day Motown A-Go-Go event that is the most jam-packed, star-studded of them all. The event kicks-off on Wednesday with a welcome party at the Hotel St. Regis with music from Drew Shultz & the Broken Habits, Miss Cubie, and Detroit native and recent the Voice contestant, Beth Griffith Manley. The event continues Thursday through Sunday at Bert’s Warehouse Theater with performances by the Marvelettes, the Vandellas, the Contours, the Miracles, the Wylie Girls, the Dynamics, JJ Barnes, Kim Weston, as well as the Supremes’ Scherrie Payne and Susaye Green.

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
