Hip in Detroit's Picks for the Weekend: September 3 - 6

We've already told you about Hamtramck Labor Day Festival and the Mussel Beach Music Festival. Here are some other fun things happening this weekend! 

Friday, September 3rd - Downtown Brown 20th Anniversary Show @ The Loving Touch: Downtown Brown has been a band for 20 YEARS and that's definitely worth celebrating! Head to The Loving Touch this Friday night to see them play live! They will be joined by The Amino Acids, Carmel Liburdi, and Plush Deathly. Plus, Lightshow Bob will be there too! Cover is only $12 and tickets can be purchased in advance here. Doors open at 8 p.m. and the first band hits the stage at 8:30. All ages are welcome. Also, if you're not following Neil from DTB on TikTok, you need to. 

Saturday, September 4th - SWFest @ the Senate Theater: Southwest Detroit is the place to be this Saturday! From 2-7 p.m. there will be an outdoor family friendly festival feature music, art, vendors, food, and organizations. Then, the fest moves inside the Senate Theater at 8 p.m. for an awesome concert featuring Curtis Roach, Tiny Jag, and many more. Check out the full schedule for the day here. Admission is free and the Senate Theater is located at 6424 Michigan Ave. in Detroit.

Friday, September 3rd - Monday, September 6th - Arts, Beats & Eats: Maybe we're getting older or maybe the lineup is actually getting better, but this year is one of the first times that Arts, Beats & Eats is on our list of things you might want to check out. The Crofoot helped with some of the booking this year, so there are some great national acts on the bill, like Rise Against, Neon Trees, The Guess Who, and Stone Temple Pilots. Some of the great local acts playing include Summer Like the Season, Jackson & The Poolsharks, Sara Marie Barron, Detroit Riddim Crew, and Bill Grogan's Goat. Check out the full music schedule here. Of course, there are also arts to look at and eats to eat, hence the name Arts, Beats & Eats. On Friday the festival is free to enter until 5 p.m., after 5 p.m. the price is $10. On Saturday, Sunday and Monday, admission is $5 before 3 p.m. and $10 after 3 p.m. Admission is free for kids under 3 and for veterans and active military. For more info, click here. Also, the first 5,000 people at the festival get a $10 gift card to use at participating retail shops in Downtown Royal Oak. So, that's a nice gesture.

Saturday, September 4th - Monday, September 6th - Blake's Sunflower Festival: If you're looking to get away this holiday weekend, but can only leave for the day head out to the country for Blake's Sunflower Festival in Armada! Stroll through fields of sunflowers, find your way through a sunflower maze, shop with over 100 local makers, and grab a hard cider from the tasting room. There will even be live music too! Admission to the Sunflower Festival is $7. There are also festivities for kids, if you want to make it a family affair! Get all of the details here
