"Clutch Cargo's is housed in a turn-of-the century church. The stained glass windows and vaulted ceiling are dramatic, and the acoustics are superb - an atmosphere ideal for bands such as the Cocteau Twins, the first band brought to this venue in the summer of 1996. Since then, a wide range of artists have played here, including the Foo Fighters, Less Than Jake, Aphex Twin, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, the Brian Setzer Orchestra, Squirrel Nut Zippers, the Deftones and Spiritualized."

We have been promoting local music for over 27 years. Great atmosphere with outstanding service. Come on in and be treated like family.

"Metro Detroit's destination for the ultimate entertainment experience. The Fillmore is located in the heart of the Detroit Theatre District. Built in 1925, it is a major work of one of the nation's most illustrious architects, C. Howard Crane. The opulent Renaissance classical style continues to make it one of the most desirable venues in the area. Indeed, the Fillmore is one of the few theatres in the district to have enjoyed continuous operation." – from the Fillmore's Web site

"Tickets for Fox Theatre events may be purchased at the Fox Theatre and Joe Louis Arena box offices and Hockeytown Authentics in Troy (without service charges) and all Ticketmaster locations, including Marshall Field's.

Reveling in the marvel of finding again a treasure once lost, audiences of all ages flock to The Fox in record numbers to be part of the Fox Phenomenon!" — From Olympia Entertainment's Web site.

Designed by leading Detroit architect George D. Mason in 1927, the 450-seat Gem Theatre boasts a lavish, intricately painted ceiling, ornate proscenium panels, rich carpet, and 1920s lighting. The theatre was built by the Twentieth Century Club, a group of cultural and civic-minded women of social prominence, to adjoin the Century Club building, a Mission-style meeting facility constructed in 1903. Prior to the Depression, the “Little Theatre” served as Detroit’s first foreign film house, and survived several name changes before closing as an adult movie house, the “Gem,” in 1978. Detroit developer Charles Forbes purchased the building in the 1980s, and by 1991, had returned the Gem Theatre to its Spanish Revival-style brilliance. In 1997, the Gem Theatre was faced with extinction in view of the City of Detroit’s plan to construct new stadiums for the Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions. Upon reaching an agreement with the city, the Forbes family began preparations to relocate the Gem/Century building and preserve this historic structure for a second time. On November 10, 1997, the Gem Theatre and Century Club facility finished its five-block journey, breaking the Guinness Book world record as the heaviest building ever moved on wheels. The Century Club, restored in 1999, now houses a 200-seat cabaret-style theatre, as well as a fine-dining restaurant and banquet facility. Don’t miss the world-class musical and comedic productions in this intimate, elegant venue.

The Magic Bag is one of metro Detroit's premiere entertainment venues and plays host to both local and national touring acts and artists.

"Located above the Garden Bowl, the Magic Stick is home to ten billiard tables, a full bar and lounge area, one of Detroit's best jukeboxes and in the last several years has become one of the nation's most acclaimed small live music venues, hosting great live bands from across the country and around the corner. When there's no live music, the Magic Stick is open for billiards and beverages until 2 a.m."

Love & Special Sauce, Los Lobos and Wilco, just to name a few. The Majestic is also available for private parties and banquets." – from the Majestic's Web site.
If “Musick has Charms to soothe a savage Breast” (William Congreve, 1697), food, too, will smooth savage passions or normal grumpiness brought on by hunger pangs. Sandwiches come with big, perfect steak fries. The Cuban is crunchy and filling, with lots of pickle. Appetizers are another way to go, with my favorite being the skewered coconut shrimp: light, crisp, just a tad sweet. Chicken or beef quesadillas are served with a creditable guacamole as well as salsa and sour cream, and Cuban black bean soup, a mix of whole beans and purée, has a vinegar kick. There’s only one dinner-type entrée per se on the menu — those same three lamb chops, but less interestingly presented, with rice and green beans — and a couple of desserts. To buy tickets to a Jazz Café show, call Music Hall or see Ticketmaster. Food is served from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday and until 11 p.m. on weekends.
