Friday, September 19 @ 8 PM
7 PM - Mix. Mingle. Eat. Drink.
8 PM - Liam Hayes and Plush.
9 PM - My Brightest Diamond.
Performing under the experimental-pop moniker My Brightest Diamond, Shara Worden has an artistry that seems to transcend music itself. Where worlds are colliding, there is Shara; a zeitgeist for a growing movement of experimental musicians eager to bend the borders of artistry and genre. On stage the Detroit native evokes as much Martha Graham as Edith Piaf, leaving audiences thunderstruck with her mystical voice and mythic storytelling.
*Please note, the DSO does not appear on this performance.

Fifth House Ensemble presents Black Violet II, a multi-media narrative chamber music collaboration featuring the work of Chicago graphic novelist Ezra Claytan Daniels. Centered during the last outbreak of the plague in London, the gripping performance melds vivid imagery and riveting narrative with music of the highest caliber as graphic novel slides illustrate the story. Start your evening early with snacks and drinks in the Atrium and join us for the after party at Great Lakes Coffee in Midtown.

Thursday, October 23 @ 10 PM
9 PM - Mix. Mingle. Eat. Drink.
10 PM - Listen.
For the first time ever, Shigeto will perform with a live ensemble of musicians! Cool shades of ambient music, stuttering early IDM, dubstep, sub-bass, and jazz melodicism color Detroit artist Shigeto's palette. Beat-driven but given to richly textured sound design, rhythmically fractrued but melodically sumptuous, Shigeto's music is a bridge between the past and present, bringing the artist face to face with a creative legacy that spans decades. Arrive early for food, drinks, and conversation in the Atrium before the set.
