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!


 Trinosophes the new Bohemian-National-Home-in-Exile space is finally opening! The Bohemian was an amazing place and Joel Peterson has continued to curate great events in the past few years since then. It's really exciting that he finally has a new space, so check it out! Check out the Dirty Three/Magik Markers gig there on Sept 25. They are located at 1464 Gratiot Detroit. Tickets for that gig are available at People's Records and Stormy Records.

In Ann Arbor, the old Natural Canvas is reopened as the 3rd Deathstar and in our opinion it is now the best set up as a venue than ever before! It is of course located at 613 N Main St. All ages show space, shows need to end by 11. Highly recommended!

UFO Factory has a new building on the corner of Trumbull and Michigan Ave in Detroit and they painted the outside silver last month!

Recently came across this website that has its own show schedule here.
