This is one of those weekends where there is just way too much stuff going on. We thought we'd help you out a bit and put some of the things we think are worth checking out in a nice, convenient little package.
Actorfest- Detroit: If you're thinking about acting, want to get involved in the movie-making industry, or if you are interested in trying to get Hollywood to come back to Michigan again, then you should check out Actorfest today. It's held at the awesome Raleigh Studios (where James Franco was filming the prequel to the Wizard of Oz last year) in Pontiac until 6 tonight. There will be workshops, casting calls, you name it. In particular, there is a casting call for a feature film, Category 6. So if you are looking to get some screen time, get up off your butt and head over there! Now!
Meet Your Best Friend at the Detroit Zoo: Who doesn't love cute little puppies? I don't care who you are, puppies are always adorable. The Detroit Zoo is teaming up with the Michigan Humane Society and a bunch of local animal welfare organizations to host the annual event today and tomorrow from 10- 5. There will be hundreds of dogs, cats, puppies and kittens available for immediate adoption. If you're looking for a new, adorable friend, this is your place.
Running With Panthers Final Show: A few weeks ago we had the pleasure of seeing and then interviewing the band Running With Panthers. Sadly, they are playing their last show tonight at St. Andrews with Little Ozzy. Make sure to see them one last time, and get some merch 50% off!
The High Strung Record Release Show: We love The High Strung, and they are playing tonight at one of our favorite bars, The Loving Touch, to celebrate their new record! Check out the interview with Josh here and then head down there for some fun and to check out their new music!
Rival Summers Record Release Show: The new record came out May 15 and is available to stream free here. Give it a listen and then go see the show at the Crofoot tonight with Shapes & Colors for $12.
Peace Love Spandex Fashion Show: Peace Love Spandex will be having a couple fashion shows on Sunday at Eastern Market. The first one is at 2 and the second at 7. Trust us, you don't want to miss it!
Motor City ComicCon 2012:
For all you nerds and comic book lovers. There will be dealers,
merchandise and best of all- some celebrity guests! I know no one wants
to miss out on their chance to finally see Peter Brady in real
life. I'm sure that's the reason everyone will be going this weekend.
Well, the event will be going on all weekend- Saturday 10:30- 6, Sunday
10:30- 5. A one-day ticket costs $25, or you can get a weekend ticket
for $55. Visit their website here for more info.
Flower Day at Eastern Market: It's sunny and warm and beautiful out! Which means it's the perfect day for an outing to Eastern Market to get some fresh fruits and veggies and whatever else your little heart desires, but especially flowers! Sunday is the annual Flower Day event. According to their website, over 200,000 people attend, but don't let that scare you out of getting some gorgeous flowers!
There are just not enough hours in the day! Wish we could go to everything, but alas, there are only so many hours in a day. Happy sunny, beautiful weekend to you!
