The Blind Boys of Alabama have been making African-American gospel music for 60 years, and are showing no signs of slowing down. On Thursday, March 20, they will roll in at the Ark for a night of soulful southern tunes. Their pitch-perfect harmonies and fiery vocals are instantly recognizable, elevating audiences to a spiritual state of awe. Since 2000, they've won five Grammys and four Gospel Music Awards, and their new album, "I'll Find a Way," draws heavily from the Sam Cooke school of gospel.

7:30pm. $35. The Ark, 316 S. Main St. 734-761-1451. theark.org.
