Hip in Detroit's Picks for the Weekend: September 13-15

Friday, September 13th & Saturday, September 14th - Meet your Best Friend @ The Zoo: We know, we keep posting about pet adoption, but this is the adoption event of all events. Next we promise we won't post about pet adoption (well, maybe). Hundreds of cats and dogs will be in the parking lot of the Detroit Zoo this Friday and Saturday, looking for their forever homes. Since this event started in 1993, more than 25,000 dogs and cats have found homes. Is your new furry friend waiting for you at the zoo? Find out on Friday from noon 'til 6 p.m. or Saturday from 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Side note, you cannot adopt the bears, lions, and other animals that are actually in the zoo during this event.

Saturday, September 14th - The Lucid Furs @ The Sanctuary: The Lucid Furs always put on a great show and this Saturday will be no different. They will be playing at The Sanctuary in Hamtramck along with Salvadore RossDark Serenity, Stephanie Cox and The Blox and Edison Hollow. Cover is only $10, doors are set to open at 8 p.m., and all ages are welcome. Give The Lucid Furs latest album No God? No Problem a listen here.

Saturday, September 14th - Nothing Elegant: 8 Years Young @ The Old Miami: We had a blast chatting with Lady Fantastic (aka Sara Aldridge) on our podcast a couple of months ago. One of the things we talked about was the awesome monthly dance parties that she DJs along with her Nothing Elegant partner, Amy Dreamcatcher. This Saturday night, the duo returns to The Old Miami, but this is a special edition of Nothing Elegant. They will be celebrating their 8th birthday! Cover is only $5 and 21+ are welcome.

Saturday, September 14th - H20 25th Anniversary @ The Loving Touch: As we get older, so do the bands that we grew up listening to. This Saturday night, H20 will be celebrating their 25th anniversary at The Loving Touch. Joining them on stage are Comeback Kid, Abuse of Power, Strange Magic, and Hushed. Tickets for this monumental show are $20 in advance or $23 the day of the show. You can purchase your tickets in advance here. Doors are at 7 p.m. and all ages are welcome.

Saturday, September 14th - WhateverFest 9 @ Tangent Gallery: WhateverFest 9 was supposed to take place on The Dequindre Cut earlier this summer, but the date and location was changed. The good news is, that means that you didn't miss it! Over 30 acts are playing the event, spread across 3 stages at The Tangent Gallery. Doors open at noon, cover is $10 until 10 p.m. or $20 after 10. So get there early! See the full lineup for the day here.

Murals in the Market: Murals in the Market officially kicks off this weekend! The major events that you're used to, like Eastern Market After Dark, aren't happening until next week. So we will tell you more about that next week. This weekend there is a Family Reunion Block Party on Saturday, and an Artist Meet & Greet and Cocktail Hour on Sunday. See the full schedule of events here.
