"Quaint downriver Mexican restaurant. Good food at low prices."
Armando's stays open until 4 a.m. on Fridays and Saturdays (until 2 a.m. the rest of the week), and the post-bar crowd that spills over from Dearborn and downtown Detroit's clubs can choose from the regular Mexican fare-or Mexican breakfast. They roll in at 2-3 a.m., and, depending on what's happening, there can be a line outside at 3 a.m. Owner Cecilia Benedict approves of the late night crowd, and says watching buzzed patrons, churlish lovers and new friends can make it worth working late.
The slogan on the wall is your signal that there is something different about Baja Fresh: “No microwave! No can openers! No freezers! No lard! No MSG!” You can eat food that is fast and tasty, and not overwhelmed by a dunk in the deep fryer.

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.

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.
