Every Asian cuisine attempted -- Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese -- gets a heavy-handed or boring treatment. No fire in the "spicy" dishes; no subtlety in anything.
Ma Poo Doo Foo is a serious vegetarian entree with a name that is too much fun not to say. Menu includes seafood, pork, beef, chicken, lo meins, pan-fried noodles, chop suey, and fried rice.
"Master sushi chef, Elmer Bionson, serves authentic sushi and Japanese cuisine at Azumi's Garden in Auburn Hills. Drawing on culinary influences of the Far East, Mr. Bionson tastefully pulls together the finest dishes from Japan, China, the Philippines, Thailand, Korea, and Vietnam.
Azumi's primary focus is moderately-priced take-out for the time being with soft drinks and bottled water."
Traditional Chinese cuisine. Beer and wine.

"China King hit it big satisfying the taste buds of a discerning crowd it prepares the usual Chinese fare in an unusual way. The restaurant is lavishly decorated with etched glass, painted mirrors and brass-trimmed woodwork. More than 100 different dishes are offered, both familiar and unique. One of the more unusual dishes is chow-ma-mein, a spicy broth filled with beef, seafood and homemade noodles. Its most popular dishes include string beans sauteed in ginger-garlic sauce and General Tso's chicken, chicken breast deep fried into chicken balls and then stir-fried in a spicy brown sauce. This delicious chicken dish is served with steamed broccoli."

This “adrenaline-fueled” funk and soul band was formed in the late ‘90s by a close knit group of eight self-taught musicians living in L.A.. Featuring their new powerhouse vocalist, Adryon de León, the band is preparing for the release of their seventh full-length album later this fall. Their music is an energetic, heart-pounding blend of deep soul, funk, afro-disco and edgy rock, covering hits like “It’s Your Thing” in addition to writing and composing their own original songs. The Infatuations and Third Coast Kings also perform.
If you’ve seen this YouTube star’s most famous videos, then you already know to expect something extravagant, colorful and hilarious as Todrick Hall sets out on his first tour of comedy skits, parodies, flash mobs and music. Hall initially shot to fame as a contestant on American Idol Season 9 after making it to the semi-finals. Once booted off the show, he dedicated his career to creating musically driven projects online including the viral videos “It Gets Better,” “McDonalds Drive Thru Song,” and “Cinderfella.” VIP tickets include a meet and greet with Todrick Hall and a signed poster. Watch him perform live this weekend when doors open at 6.
The king, himself, is coming to Detroit. Not the shaky legs, greased hair king; he’s left the building. We’re talking about the king of surf guitar, Dick Dale. Not familiar with surf rock? Then head over to the Magic Bag on this evening and let the innovator show you how it’s done. Dale pioneered the style and, working closely with Fender, pushed the boundaries of electric amplification technology. His speedy picking and showmanship has been considered a precursor to Heavy Metal and has influenced the likes of Jimi Hendrix and Eddie Van Halen.
Inspired by an ancient form of Javanese music, Japanese band OOIOO (pronounced oh-oh-eye-oh-oh) is bursting onto the Detroit scene this weekend for a forceful performance. The band formed during the mid-1990s, merging experimental and pop music into a unique style. Their seventh and most recent album, Gamel, released on July 1, has received positive reviews that acknowledge the music’s fun, yet challenging vibe. Incorporating the tradition of Gamelan into their versatile musical style, OOIOO is led by the captivating drummer, Yoshimi, previously of the noise-pop group Boredom. (She’s the inspiration for the Flaming Lips album Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots). Her skill and leadership are legendary, and for one night you can catch this international phenomenon in an intimate concert at the museum.
Come out and celebrate Detroit’s 313th birthday at The Detroit Historical Society’s Streets of Old Detroit exhibit. Groups will work together as historical detectives in a game involving puzzles, questions and learning about the buildings and features within the exhibit modeled after 19th century Detroit.

Tomorrow night, the sweet indie pop melodies of this Scottish five-piece will be floating through the Loving Touch. . With ease, front woman Tracyanne Campbell’s smooth, candied vocals and wry Scottish story telling illustrate the challenges of life. Themes often circle around heartbreak, a common thread running through their recent album Desire Lines, released June 4. The album title nods to life’s uncommon paths that are marked by wear, not by signs; the paths our feet choose naturally. Forging its own desire lines, Camera Obscura’s unconventional style is well off the beaten path.
