Bikes, Beers, And Balusters

Sat., Sept. 22, 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

Over the course of a relaxing bike ride through Detroit, we will explore the architectural ornamentation of Corrado Parducci, the man who helped make Detroit beautiful.

Afterward, we will unwind at the Beaubien House, one of Detroit’s oldest homes, with optional lunch, beers and informal conversation on ornamentation and craftsmanship in Detroit.

Audiotree Music Festival

Sat., Sept. 22, 12 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 23, 12 p.m.

He may be music journalists’ most divisive subject and modern-day existentialism’s poster boy, but one thing is true of God’s Favorite Customer — Father John Misty, aka Josh Tillman is probably on LSD. But this rebellious spirit is just what Audiotree, the Chicago-based studio session company is all about, which is why the self-medicated prophet of self-awareness has been chosen to headline the 6th iteration of the Audiotree Music Festival in Kalamazoo. FJM will be joined by fellow headliners Local Natives for the two-day event, which will include performances by Diet Cig, Real Estate, Blitzen Trapper, Post Animal, Michigander, and more. $45-$135

Picnic

Sat., Sept. 22, 6-8 p.m.

Simone DeSousa EDITION will host PICNIC, a site-specific installation by Campo Studio (Fernando Bales & Elise DeChard). The project aims to blur the lines between object, architecture, and the field in between. The intervention will comprise a series of mobile furniture armatures, each with a standalone presence and use, that together assemble into a cohesive architectural space spanning the gallery and courtyard. Investigating playful materiality and rich tactility, the structures will activate the sensorial boundary between interior and public space. The project will be up through the second week of October.

Starting as an elaborate family halloween tradition, ScareFest Scream Park has steam rolled it’s way into one of metro Detroit’s premier haunted attractions. It’s a unique place you can come and spend hours with four attractions on all levels of fright, a bonfire pit, movies, entertainment, and simply a fun place to hangout. Visit their Castle of the Dead and even attend their Haunted Camping (if you’re brave enough) for an intense session of heart-thumping terror this Halloween.

Avenue Q

Mondays-Sundays. Continues through Oct. 7

Boasting one of the most unique warnings in Broadway history, Avenue Q wants you to know that it is full of puppet sex — full-on puppet sex. The debaucherous “triple crown” (that’s best musical, best book, and best score) Tony Award-winning musical spins PBS into XXX territory. The show follows puppet Princeton, a broke college graduate and his search for purpose. Each of Avenue Q’s 11 puppet characters is animated and voiced by actors in full view of the audience, making for a four-dimensional theatrical experience. Avenue Q is not just raunchy — it’s delightfully inappropriate. Want proof? Catch musical numbers “If You Were Gay,” “The Internet Is for Porn,” and “Everyone’s a Little Bit Racist.” $17-$28
