NEWS section...

Our friends in Grand Rapids have started their own Do-It-Together community calendar in GR, their website is

The new UFO Factory is in the works and they're trying to get the Hatch Detroit grant. UFO was an amazing place and I'm sure the new incarnation will be even moreso! If you use social media like facebook please like their page, apparently social media is a big component of getting the grant.

MICHIGAN HAPPENINGS = community resource for cool shows & other events in southeast Michigan (mostly Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Detroit, and surrounding areas). We love all ages shows the most but we list non all ages shows too. If you have something to add please email Shelley at sabsalant at gmail. Or leave a comment here.

We also make a hard copy flyer calendar every month, and we're always looking for help printing & distributing those. Please get in touch if you want to help!

Also we are always looking for more places to do shows, especially in Ann Arbor where there seems to be a dry spell. If you want to start hosting some shows get in touch!
