Varsity — The Rec Room

Chicago quintet Varsity humorously describe its music as "too cute for the punks, too raw for the bubble-gummers.” It's an apt definition considering in concert the band takes summery pop hooks and gives them a distinctly rough edge. Tickets are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.

Show is all ages, and starts at 7 p.m.


Thursday, Sept. 6

Craig Brown Band — Call the Office

One of Detroit’s most beloved and powerful musicians has gone solo. Well, solo in the sense that he’s put a dynamite musical act together and called it Craig Brown Band. The debut full-length album, The Lucky Ones Forget, was recorded almost live at Brown Rice Studio with Warren Defever (His Name Is Alive) — and is now available on Third Man Records. It’s a long-player filled with songs about heartbreak, fishing and vans — built upon the work of those daring punks of yore who embraced country music (Replacements, Meat Puppets, Tom Petty, et al). And it’s one of 2017’s must-hear records.

Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 at the door. Show starts at 7 p.m.

Dogfight (presented by Allswell Productions) — Wolf Performance Hall — Sept. 6-8

The hauntingly beautiful musical, Dogfight, by Pasek and Paul (La La Land, Greatest Showman, Dear Evan Hansen) and Peter Duchan, was praised by countless critics and nominated for numerous awards, winning the Lucille Lortel Award for Best Musical. Based on the 1991 Warner Brothers film, Dogfight takes audiences on a romantic and heartbreaking theatrical journey that stays with you long after the performance.

It's November 21, 1963. On the eve of their deployment to a small but growing conflict in Southeast Asia, three young Marines set out for one final boys' night of debauchery, partying and maybe a little trouble. But, when Corporal Eddie Birdlace meets Rose, an awkward and idealistic waitress whom he enlists to win a cruel bet with his fellow recruits, she rewrites the rules of the game and teaches him the power of love and compassion.

Tickets are $25.


Friday, Sept. 7
