The Current Forecast: Listen to the music you can hear live in town

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

There are a lot of great events happening this week in the Washtenaw County area! My Girlfriend Beru kicks things off at Club Above performing great pop-rock music on Thursday, September 1. Also on Thursday night, Grand Rapids folk band Watching for Foxes comes to The Ark and promises to put on a really beautiful show. Friday night has a few different live music options, including First Fridays in Ypsilanti, which sees dancey pop group Telephon9 coming in from Detroit to perform at Bona Sera Underground. Progressive rappers Uncommon NASA and Carl Kavorkian are also performing on Friday night over at Far House in Ann Arbor.  If those two options for Friday aren’t up your alley, head over to The Blind Pig for a solid indie rock show headlined by Ann Arbor’s Worst Case Scenario. Finally, closing out the week is DJ Justin Caruso, who is on a national tour and is stopping in at Necto in Ann Arbor.  Make sure to put on your dancing shoes as he will have you partying late into the night.

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