This year they’re opening the gallery to multiple artists in a variety of mediums to feature nearly 50 pieces of zombified art from local and regional artists. Accompanying the art will be a slew of talented musical and dance acts to get even the stiffest of zombie bodies moving. Due to the graphic nature of the art and performances, this show is not recommended for young children. The show will be on display at the Pheonix Café in Hazel Park. Doors open at 8 p.m. There is a $5 entry fee.

Now Avey Tare has partnered up with Angel Deradoorian, former member of Dirty Projectors, and former Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman to create a sound inspired by a freaky mesh of garage rock and ’60s novelty pop. With the release of their new album Enter the Slasher House, the trio is ready to prove its weirdness once and for all. Ponytail member Dustin Wong also plays this Friday at The Blind Pig. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.

There have been whispers in praise of his talent over the years because of his work with artists like Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, but now Q is ready to take the main stage. Oxymoron features singles “Man of the Year,” “Collard Greens,” “Break the Bank” and “Yay Yay,” two of which have made it to the Billboard Hot 100 this year. Schoolboy Q will play this Friday at St. Andrews. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $22.50. (Photo via Facebook)

This year they’re opening the gallery to multiple artists in a variety of mediums to feature nearly 50 pieces of zombified art from local and regional artists. Accompanying the art will be a slew of talented musical and dance acts to get even the stiffest of zombie bodies moving. Due to the graphic nature of the art and performances, this show is not recommended for young children. The show will be on display at the Pheonix Café in Hazel Park. Doors open at 8 p.m. There is a $5 entry fee.

Now Avey Tare has partnered up with Angel Deradoorian, former member of Dirty Projectors, and former Ponytail drummer Jeremy Hyman to create a sound inspired by a freaky mesh of garage rock and ’60s novelty pop. With the release of their new album Enter the Slasher House, the trio is ready to prove its weirdness once and for all. Ponytail member Dustin Wong also plays this Friday at The Blind Pig. The show starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $15.

There have been whispers in praise of his talent over the years because of his work with artists like Kendrick Lamar, Mac Miller, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, but now Q is ready to take the main stage. Oxymoron features singles “Man of the Year,” “Collard Greens,” “Break the Bank” and “Yay Yay,” two of which have made it to the Billboard Hot 100 this year. Schoolboy Q will play this Friday at St. Andrews. Doors open at 7 p.m. Tickets are $22.50. (Photo via Facebook)
