Concert of Colors

Likely you've already heard, be it from the Free Press or Detroit News or wherever else - so any superfluous blogging would probably sound like a "...don't forget!!" kind of a sing/songey adnauseum reminder.

But - still - check it out!

Because, A.) Don Was always puts together a good show - bringing together Detroit greats via veterans and younger contemporaries with the All-Star Revue.

Alberta Adams / Dennis Coffey / Marshall Crenshaw Doop & The Inside Outlaws / Electric Lion Sound Wave Experiment / Ingray / Motor City Horns / Mayaeni / Andre Williams / Outrageous Cherry / The Satin Peaches / SRC Gary Quackenbush / Jere Stormer / Sun Messengers (30th anniversary this year!) / Kim Weston
House Band
Don Was, bass / Luis Resto, keyboard / Terry” Thunder” Hughley, drums / Brian “Roscoe” White, guitar / Shantelle Hawkins, back up vocals / Margaret King Ahmed, back up vocals / Consuela Lopez, back up vocals

B.) We have Mavis Staple headlining the main stage (at the Max M. Fischer) on Sunday night.

C.) The comparable Odu Afrobeat Orchestra are appearing just before supper time on the Comerica Diversity Stage, Sunday.
D.) Start your weekend, Friday, at the Detroit Institute of Arts - with a screening of the 1931 Spanish production of Dracula (using shots with the same sets from the Bela Lugosi. version).

E.) A Food Drive for Gleaners Community Food Bank, Saturday at the Fischer.

Outdoor local music.... You know...
