Current Forecast: New Sounds in Town This Week

. September 27, 2016.

Welcome back to the Current Forecast playlist! Every Tuesday Current Magazine is putting together a playlist of the live music acts coming to town over the next week.

Anderson East kicks the week off tonight at the Blind Pig, bringing his fantastic version of country-inspired music to Washtenaw County. DJ duo Tritonal is coming to town on Wednesday September 28th at Necto in Ann Arbor; expect a party atmosphere. If you’re in a more contemplative mood on Wednesday, Marc Cohn will be performing some of his classic folk rock music at The Ark. On Friday, September 30th, Kamasi Washington is coming to the Michigan Theatre, which promises to be one of the most exciting shows in the area this year. Washington is one of the leading names in jazz music right now and has also made a name for himself in the hip hop community by providing backing music on some of the leading rap albums of the past several years. This is a can’t miss show! Also on Friday, if you’re more in the mood for head banging, metal band Goblin Cock comes to the Blind Pig. On Sunday, October 2nd, The Black Black and Human Skull will be performing at Far House, which should be a fun punk show.  Finally, on Monday, October 3rd brass quartet The Westerlies are performing at Canterbury House in Ann Arbor.

Make sure to check back next week to see who is coming to town!
