In addition to selling baked goods to-go, you can also purchase Senate Theatre merch while you're there, to help support the historic theatre during these difficult times.

An Interview with White Bee

As music grows and changes it's becoming genreless. Artists are merging all sorts of sounds together to create a new approach to what we have heard before. The ones who do it well create fresh new ways to construct a song and forge the way forward. White Bee is a singer-songwriter with an interesting new approach to music that blends pop, jazz, soul, and rock into one. She has given us a taste of what's to come by releasing a few singles and a music video ahead of her new album Psychedelic Flight Attendant, but we can't hear the whole thing until March 26th. On this night, she will be performing live alongside Allye Gaietto, Sara Marie Barron, and Problematicblackhottie at Outer Limits Lounge to celebrate the full digital release of her music on the 27th.

We asked White Bee to sit down with us ahead of the show and she brought along Elise McCoy to chat about this project. Take a look at the video to find out more about the inspiration and process behind her work.

White Bee will be playing at the Outer Limits Lounge on March 26th. The show starts at 8 p.m. and it's $10 to get in the door. White Bee will be selling limited edition tapes for $5 at the show and the new album will be out everywhere on March 27th. You can follow White Bee here to keep up with everything she does from here on out.

There are always over a hundred dogs in their care, either at their facilities or in foster homes.

If you can't adopt a pet at this time, you can still help the DACC by fostering, doing a sleepover with a dog, or by taking a dog out during Detroit Dogventures. This Saturday, head to DACC and the Friends of DACC will set you up with a dog to take out on the town for the day. The Friends have paired with Detroit area businesses to set up dog-friendly locations to take the dogs on field trips for the day.
