We get it. It's a summertime Friday night and you're looking to party away from Ann Arbor without going all that far away from Ann Arbor. 

Check out the two best weird music happenings tonight where you can shake your booty to some electro tunes in a vintage store with cookies or groove to a colossal horn section in a Dexter barn. 

For Cookies

DJs & Cookies invades Yspilanti's Friends Closet (310 Perrin St.) with local electro maestros Melton John, Stacks//Culture, and DJ Dagger tonight starting at 7:00pm. Creative curator Flower.child and Ypsi's own Pat2Dope will be baking up cookies all night to satiate your dance-whetted sweet tooth. You can also count on there being a 90s trivia challenge that could land you a dope swag bag of Friends Closet vintage threads.

For Barn Funk

If you fancy hanging out in Dexter for some funk music this evening, catch 10-piece funky Afrobeat crew Jive Colossus at Rancho Tranquilico (11300 Island Lake Rd.) as they  power through a three-hour set of horn-saturated groovy tunes in a barn, starting at 8:30pm. Yes, they're playing in a barn. And yes, if you enjoy live music, you must consider making it out to this barn party. It's only $5 and you can BYO booze.
