  • OOIOO
    OOIOO 7/23 8:00PM
     

    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.

    Garden Party 7/24 5:00PM
     

    Every Thursday evening through August, the Detroit’s historic Whitney mansion will host a party in its illustrious garden sanctuaries. Built in 1894 for lumber baron David Whitney Jr., the elaborate structure now serves as a sort of time capsule in the center of Midtown, allowing you to escape the incessant buzz of city life and peak into a previous chapter of Detroit. Nosh shrimp and oysters at the raw bar or enjoy champagne and wine specials amongst the vibrant flowers. If appetizers won’t satisfy, the full dinner menu will also be available. Happy hour begins at 5:00 p.m. with live entertainment running from 6:30 to 8:30.
