If you don’t know who Vulfpeck is, you haven’t been paying attention. This A2 funk squad made national headlines last year with their Sleepify Tour—an admission-free tour funded by fans streaming the silent Sleepify album on repeat while they slept, multiplying the less-than-a-cent royalty rate Spotify pays artists.

$20, 9pm. Special guest: The Euphonics, The Blind Pig, Friday, 24, 208 S 1st St, (734) 996-855.
