It's the fourth iteration of the party curated by DJ duo Soul Clap. This year's lineup includes Stacey Pullen, Kyle Hall, Josh Wink, Jay Daniel, and about a dozen other track-spinners.

Detroit Love: Carl Craig's party concept that shares the sounds of the city with the world makes its annual homecoming for this event at the Magic Stick.

11 p.m.-4 a.m.; 4120 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 21+; Tickets $20

Texture: A newcomer to the Movement afterparty scene, Texture will aim to bring more than just music to Marble Bar with this event — promoters say they'll combine spatial curation and music programming to curate an "idea." The 14-hour party offers a dense lineup of more than the usual names; underground talents to be featured include Fred P, Lena Willikens, Mike Dunn, and DJ Qu.
10 p.m.-12 p.m.; 1501 Holden St., Detroit; 21+; Tickets $30

Party mainstays will be featured too, with Eddie C on the lineup and (we hope) slotted to spin his annual sunrise set.
