SuperDre
    If you're looking for a unique spin on techno, SuperDre will deliver with her tried and true blend of minimal tech, electro, retro, and deep house. A pioneer in her own right, SuperDre was instrumental in reviving the electronic scene in Grand Rapids, holding down a weekly at the popular club Billy's for years. Classically trained, she's a band nerd at heart with a major in music business and has no shortage of accomplishments. From producer, actress, and all-around hustler, SupreDre is a true force to be reckoned with. She was voted the area's DJ of the Year in 2009 and top 10 most influential out of the region. Oh yeah, and she really knows how to fill a dance floor. Splitting her time between touring the world and building an empire, SupreDre is one of the hardest-working DJs you'll meet. Detroit, her second home, has always been a source of inspiration and she's certainly no stranger to the scene. She cites influences like Cybotron, Missy Elliott, Magda, Loco Dice, Daft Punk, and Claude VonStroke. And all of that should give a decent indication of what to expect from a SuperDre set. — Rai Skotarczyk
    
    SuperDre plays the Polish Village Café on Friday, March 3 at 11:30 p.m.; 2990 Yemans St, Hamtramck; Soundcloud.

Valley Hush:
    "There's no denying that Valley Hush is making sweet pop music, but with Vanicelli's soaring vocals and producer/guitarist Alex Kaye's expansive production, Valley Hush's sound is an ever-changing landscape of what pop music means to them. "Pop music is a very diverse genre, so there's some of it that we like, and some of it that we really do," says Vanicelli."

Friday, 11/18
    The Fray
    @ The Fillmore
    Don’t lie to yourself: Every red-blooded American can identify at least three songs by the Fray: “How to Save a Life,” “Over My Head,” and “You Found Me.” Their fourth album, Helios, was released in 2014, and it was pretty impressive. They’ve been darlings for 96.3 WDVD since 2005, so it’s no surprise the “Everything but the rap” radio station is sponsoring the show. They’ll be joined by American Authors, who gained a considerable amount of airtime with their insatiably catchy pop hit, “Best Day of My Life.”
    The show starts at 7 p.m.; 2115 Woodward Ave., Detroit; thefillmoredetroit.com; Tickets are $15 - $65.
