Life’s a stitch, then you D.I.Y. Thankfully, the annual indie shopping event aka the Detroit Urban Craft Fair has returned to take the bull-scrap out of the often soulless nightmare that is holiday shopping (because with every trip to Sharper Image to buy a step-dad a neck massager, an...

Humorist David Sedaris will read from his diaries at Ann Arbor's Michigan Theater

Posted By on Wed, Dec 1, 2021 at 10:30 AM

No personal opinion, observation, or neurotic musing is off-limits for prolific humorist, nonfiction legend, and unironic lover of culottes, David Sedaris, who since taking to NPR in 1992 to read his now-famous essay "SantaLand Diaries" (during which he details his stint as a department store elf during Christmas) has...

Drive-thru 'Magic of Lights' returns with illuminated holiday cheer at DTE Energy Music Theatre

Posted By on Wed, Dec 1, 2021 at 10:21 AM

Lights are, like, kind of a big deal. So much so that people write songs about, well, lights. There’s Kanye West’s "Flashing Lights" and the Weeknd’s "Blinding Lights," "There’s a Light that Never Goes Out" by the Smiths, and, of course, Ellie Goulding’s 2010 banger "Lights."

Exhibition by queer artists opens at Ann Arbor's new art and technology space, CultureVerse

Bring boxes of pads and tampons to Detroit's Old Soul Vintage charity pop-up at Ferndale's Loving Touch

Posted By on Wed, Nov 24, 2021 at 10:17 PM

Earlier this month, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed House Bill 5267, which repealed Michigan’s 6% sales tax on menstrual products like pads, tampons, and menstrual cups.

Posted By on Wed, Nov 24, 2021 at 5:00 PM

We imagine the road to Hell is paved in, well, probably a number of things, including but not limited to Jeffrey Epstein, McDonald’s McRib sandwich, Kid Rock’s discography, Dancing with The Stars, memes, Trump’s tax returns, and bad musical theater. (Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, we’re looking at you!)...

America's Thanksgiving Day Parade will trot through downtown Detroit for 95th celebration

Posted By on Wed, Nov 24, 2021 at 4:57 PM

Listen, we’re the first to take any opportunity to list off all the reasons why Thanksgiving sucks. There’s the mass turkey slaughter, the obligatory family facetime, and the fact that the beloved holiday is built on blood, colonization, and the attempted erasure of Native Americans, you know, the people...
