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

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

This week’s main draw is, without a doubt, Midwest Fest at the Blind Pig from Thursday August 18th to Saturday the 20th. Detroit rappers Guilty Simpson and Red Pill will be sure to put on amazing shows when they both play on Saturday the 20th. Also, local Ypsilanti band Minihorse will play on Thursday at the fest and promise to bring some real kinetic energy to their set as always. On Friday at Midwest Fest, Bloomington, Indiana indie rock acts Mike Adams at His Honest Weight and Erin Tobey come to town and are both solid rock bands who should be heard more.

Ann Arbor native Mike Vial will be playing some great folk-pop music at Mash in Ann Arbor on Friday the 19th. Finally, New York native Jay Brannan will be performing his brand of beautiful folk singer-songwriter music at The Ark on Monday the 22nd.

Make sure to check back each week to see who is playing in the area and listen to them ahead of time!
