This Friday night, Shock Narcotic will be coming to you live from the internet!

They will be playing a livestream show along with Scour (featuring Members Of Down, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Pig Destroyer, Misery Index, And More). The show is being called Live From The Lair and it won't be one of those livestreams from an iPad propped up in the corner of a basement. It's a full on production, with Shock Narcotic's portion shot at The Crofoot in Pontiac. So, even though you can't go to The Crofoot for a show right now, it will kind of be like you are there. 

The show starts at 7 p.m. on Friday night, and will also be available as a video on demand until midnight on Sunday. You do have to purchase tickets in order to view the show, but they are only $9. You can pick yours up here. Once you purchase your tickets, you will get a link to the show three hours before it starts. If you purchase your tickets once the show has already started, you'll get a link within 5 minutes. To even further the experience and make it feel like you actually went to a show, there is merch available for this livestream! You can check that out here

You will get a chance to "meet" the current owners of these homes, and tour the exterior and interior of the properties.

Celebrate October Nights at Bagley Central

2020 has been hard on the food, drink, and entertainment industries. Everyone has had to find a new way to keep their doors open but some spots are having a harder time than others. Small local bars like Bagley Central have not been able to safely reopen, so they have had to find new ways to stay afloat. They have been making special to go cocktails every weekend for the last few months, but they are ready to do a little bit more. 

They have just announced a  new socially distanced hangout called "October Nights". These nights will feature an outdoor tent and a cool breeze blowing through the gallery while you enjoy some spooky Halloween classics on the big screen. They will also have some food popups stopping by throughout the next few weeks, the first of which will be Pizza Plex on Friday, October 23rd. To stay up to date on who is popping up and what movies are playing you can follow Bagley Central on Facebook or Instagram

October Nights are planned for the next two weekends. They also have some other socially distance events on the horizon, so make sure to stay in the loop!

The event is presented by the same people that have brought you PinzuCon for the last few years. So, if you've been to one of their conventions, you kind of have an idea of what you can expect.

The Loving Touch will be transforming into a movie theatre and playing public domain horror films throughout the remainder of this month. The lineup includes classics like Night of the Living Dead, House on Haunted Hill, and Nosferatu. Check out the full lineup below:

The Truck Stops Here, Barbie and Hello Kitty are Coming to Town!

Are you a sucker for some good nostalgia? Were you into Barbie in the '90s? Did you rock an entire Hello Kitty pencil set on the first day of school? If hot pink is your color and trying something new is your kink we have something exciting for you to check out this weekend. The Hello Kitty and Barbie Throwback Trucks are coming to Twelve Oaks Mall this weekend. 

The Hello Kitty Cafe Truck has visited before and it was a big hit. They serve up a variety of desserts and snacks alongside some limited edition Hello Kitty Swag. This includes pin sets, lunch boxes, canvas totes, water bottles, and more. They even have a signature bottled water that is probably overpriced and way too cute to pass up! On the other hand, this will be Barbie's first time in town. Her truck promises awesome accessories, fly fashions, and sweet stuff.  Think lots of 90's era natasalagia splashed across every item you can think of.

Both trucks will be parked outside of Twelve Oaks Mall from 10 a.m. - 7 p.m. this Saturday, September 26th. Please wear a mask, and keep 6 feet between yourself and others when you visit the truck!

Illuminate at The Michigan Science Center

There is always a new reason to visit The Michigan Science Center. They are constantly opening new exhibits and hosting fun events that give you a unique opportunity to check out the center up close and personal. Last month they opened a new exhibit called the Creatures of Light, this exhibit features organisms that produce their own light and explores the various reasons they are able to do this. This exhibit was curated by the American Museum of Natural History and will be showing at the Science Center through mid January.

If you would like to get an in depth look at light and see the Science Center after hours you can attend Illuminate, an after hours event at the museum this Saturday, October 22nd. The museum will open its doors for a special after hours event that will feature hands on activities, demonstrations, performances, desserts and adult beverages. We have attended one of these after hours in the past and we were pleasantly surprised by how much fun we had. It was fun to walk around the place with a glass of wine after hours, much different from the days of going there on a school trip!

Tickets to attend Illuminate are $40 a piece for adults and $12 a piece for children. There are also VIP reception tickets available for $250 a person. The event runs from 7 p.m. until 11 p.m. on Saturday. If you would like more details about speakers and VIP tickets please visit the website here.

Celebrate The Fourth of July at Slow Jams

It's been awhile since we mentioned one of our favorite weekly events, so we wanted to remind all of you that Slow Jams is still the coolest place to spend a Monday night in the City of Detroit. DJs Eastside Jon and Erno have been bringing good music to your ears every Monday night for almost 8  years. My favorite part about Slow Jams is it has always been and will always be all vinyl.

This Monday, July 4th they will be taking over Marble Bar to celebrate the Fourth of July with a full day of celebration. They also invited some friends to come and trade sets throughout the day. The lineup for the party includes Jeremy Kypta, Mister Joshooa, Aran Daniels, Soren and Foton. The music will start at 2 p.m. and go until 2 a.m. They will be BBQ-ing on the patio and they will have fireworks once it is dark enough to see them.
