Neighborhood on the Edge: Who gets to choose what happens to the Hubbard Richard Neighborhood?

Through Dec. 22
Mexicantown Center 4114 W. Vernor, Detroit Greater Detroit Area


Detroit’s Hubbard Richard neighborhood is due for even more changes soon. A quarter-century ago, “Matty” Moroun leveled dozens of houses in the community for his Ambassador Bridge. Now, with Ford Motor Co.’s purchase of the nearby former Michigan Central Station, the neighborhood will likely experience an influx of real estate speculators — which could mean many longtime members of the community get pushed out.

A new multimedia art exhibition offers a portrait of the community as it is now. Titled Neighborhood on the Edge: Who gets to choose what happens to the Hubbard Richard Neighborhood?, the show is a collaboration between activist and Matrix Theatre Company founder Shaun Nethercott and photographer Carlos Dueweke-Perez, featuring 10 life-sized photos of local residents, who have shared and recorded stories about their community. The installation is part of a city-wide, multi-disciplinary series featuring 22 commissioned exhibitions, performances and events developed by Kresge Artist Fellows.

Opening reception from 3-6 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 8, Mexicantown Latino Cultural Center, 2835 Bagley Ave., Detroit; 313-626-6232. Show runs through Sunday, Dec. 22. (313) 842-0450

Crystals have revolutionized technology due to their ability to respond to a wide variety of energies such as heat, light and electricity. The ancients used crystals in the same way our technology does today, but instead of an electrical input, they utilized subtle energies, such as thought, emotion, and bioelectricity. Today, we are rediscovering how we can use crystals for better health, happiness and healing. Join Teanne as she guides you through an introduction about the who, what, where, when and why of crystals and sage smudging, and how you can use them for self development, protection and growth.

Detroit Party Marching Band 10 year anniversary

The Sanctuary 2932 Caniff St., Detroit Greater Detroit Area

Buy from Ticketmaster$10


For some bullshit reason in bullshit high school, if you were in the marching band, you were labeled a nerd. Well, guess what, chodes? In 2019, tubas are sexy, an oboe is hot, and trumpets are basically aphrodisiacs. For 10 years, Detroit Party Marching Band has gotten the party started at countless events in and around town, and, most of the time, unsuspectedly and spontaneously where you’d least expect a dang marching band to show up. As the ever-changing, ever-expanding host band for Crash Detroit — the free, roving, three-day nonprofit festival that invites street and marching bands to make all the noise — DPMB celebrates a decade of kicking brass with a blowout performance. The Dropout, Five Pound Snap, and Scissor Now will also get in on all the brassy fun.
