Sunday, March 24th: Gimmie Gimmie Gimmie Record Show #3 @ The Sanctuary - This is by far one of the best record shows around. The show is hosted by the creators of the Facebook group by the same name. Believe us when we say there will  be some awesome vinyl up for grabs at this one! There will also be plenty of booths with movies, shirts, tapes, memorabilia, and even comics. Admission is free, but bring cash for records, drinks, and $2 slices from the bar. The show runs from 11 a.m. 'til 4 p.m.

Sunday, March 24th: 10th Annual Marche du Nain Rouge: It's time to run that little red devil out of town again! In 1702, Antoine de la Mothe Cadillac, the French founder of Detroit, claimed he was having dreams of a little red devil. He went to see a fortune teller and was told that devil that he dreamt of was the Nain Rouge, also known as the harbinger of doom. The fortune teller told Antoine that if he choose to settle in the straits between Michigan and Ontario he might turn a profit, but it would be a long uphill battle fraught with setbacks. Eventually, Cadillac saw the little red devil in person and instead of running or cowering in fear he chose to confront him. He chased the Nain Rouge away with a stick. His fatal mistake was to let the Nain see his face. The Nain continued to taunt him nonstop after he settled in those plains; he eventually had to return to France penniless.

Now, people have learned from his mistakes and wear masks and gather to run that devil out of town! The March kicks off at Second and Canfield, by Traffic Jam & Snug. Then the group will parade down to The Masonic Temple at 1 p.m. After, there are parties all over the city, with the best of them all at The Old Miami with Nothing Elegant. Get all of the details on Marche du Nain Rouge and the after parties here.
