Halloween isn’t just for ghouls and goblins. This year, Detroit mainstays Willa Rae and her band the Minor Arcana will host the inaugural — and costume-mandatory — For Saints & Sinners: A Halloween Celebration.

The multidisciplinary event boasts three realms of performances: Heaven, Hell, and Purgatory, with femme-fueled music, burlesque, drag, and aerial acts, as well as opportunities to both accrue and confess your respective sins. Tart, Sara Marie Barron, and Libby DeCamp are among the Sounds of Heaven, whereas Metro Times cover-aliens Krillin will be joined by Five Pound Snap on the Sounds of Hell stage. Leveling out the evening on the Purgatory stage are Teener, Girl Fight, and the Stools.


For Saints & Sinners: A Halloween Celebration begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 26 at Ant Hall; 2320 Caniff St., Detroit; 313-365-4948; planetant.com; Tickets are $7-$10.
