First up, The HandGrenades will be playing at 3rd Street Bar. This is part of a promotion that Metro Times and Dangerously Delicious Pies is putting on every Thursday evening throughout the summer. The show starts early, at 6:30 p.m., but the party starts before that even with Happy Hour beginning at 5:30. The HandGrenades will be joined on Thursday by Jessica Wildman and 3rd Street Bar will have drink specials running all the way until 9:30 p.m.
Sounds like the perfect reason to stop for a drink on your way home from work! And since this is all happening on a Thursday night and no one really works too hard on Fridays after all, you have no excuse to not head over to another free gig at The Shelter. This also seems to be a new weekly opportunity to catch some bands for free on Thursday nights. This weeks lineup includes George Morris, The ILL Itches, Craycrays and DJ Carjack. If you want to guarantee that you'll be able to get into this show, free tickets are available at UHF in Royal Oak or through the bands. Doors will open at 8 p.m. and the bands start at 9.
So it seems as though your Thursday evening is planned out pretty perfectly. Hit up The HandGrenades at 3rd Street then head over to The Shelter just in time for the bands to start there. Since admission is free, you'll have plenty of money for drinks too even if you don't get paid 'til Friday. For the details on the 3rd Street show click here.
