Underground & Dark

Virtually as soon as it opened just in time for last year’s “Micro Movement” festival, the new Spot Lite venue has established itself as a favorite of Detroit’s electronic music scene, thanks to its rambling, music-like vibe. to that of a warehouse and its owners love of everything related to house and techno. The venue is the perfect location for DJ Ash Lauryn’s “Underground & Black” showcase, a sort of homecoming for the DJ, who now lives in Atlanta. Lauryn, who we featured in our March music number, had long been a fan of electronic music even before hitting the decks, bursting onto the Detroit rave scene in the early 2000s. She said Metro timetables that she was inspired to start making her own music after seeing a lack of millennial black female DJs. With that in mind, its Movement weekend party features a lineup of mostly young Detroit DJs, including Kyle Hall, Stefan Ringer, Deon Jamar, Lorenzo Dewberry, AK6405 and The AM. —Lee DeVito

Noon to 9 p.m. Saturday, May 28 at Spot Lite; 2905 Beaufait Street, Detroit; spotlitedetroit.com. Tickets are $25.


Save your energy for that real all-night rave. For the occasion, the Marble Bar in Detroit offers trippy light installations by artist Patrick Ethan, alias “Light Daddy”. The stacked lineup includes Fred P, Lena Willikens, Aurora Hala, Solar & Mozhgan, Martyn, Nkisii, Sepehr, Priori, 2Lanes, Jonny from Space, JEM and Jacob Park. Dance the night away and watch the sunrise. —Lee DeVito

something cold

This one is for fans of the dark side of electronic music – industrial, EBM, minimal synth, etc., picked by Noah Anthony, with a massive but entirely appropriate amount of fog machine haze to go with it. According to the event listing, this time DJs from Something Cold will be joined by Noah Anthony, who apparently tore the club apart with “his crushing PA from our six year anniversary seven years ago”. —Lee DeVito

10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday, May 28 at UFO Factory; 2110 Trumbull St., Detroit. Tickets are $10.

Deli Rave with Sheefy McFly

Have you ever raved in a delicatessen? Probably not, but that’s okay because here’s your chance to do it. Of course, none other than Detroit’s Sheefy McFly, aka Edward Elecktro, would host a rave at a sandwich shop, because why not? This unofficial Movement Festival afterparty will take place on Saturday May 28th and Sunday May 29th at Nathan’s Deli in Detroit. DJs ThreeThirteen, Monaco.png, Drummer B and more will provide the sounds. McFly will also be on deck with art and merchandise on sale, and yes, you can grab a corned beef sandwich to stave off your late-night cravings. —Randiah Camille Green

Goes from 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Saturday, May 28 and Sunday, May 29 at Nathan’s Deli; 581 E. Jefferson, Detroit. Admission is $10 and ladies are free before 11 p.m.

Screening of the film Mind Power Mind Control by Jeff Mills

The Movement Festival festivities continue with a screening of Jeff Mills’ experimental film Mind Power Mind Control on Sunday at Cinema Detroit. In fact, it’s a collection of concept clips from the musician and artist related to his latest album Mind Power Mind Control. Esoteric sounds and seemingly random video clips come together to create this abstract piece that aims to put viewers in a dreamlike state. (We’re going to assume that a “dream state” means a state of consciousness induced by a psychedelic drug.) Mills created the film over the past six years, incorporating themes of mind-using self-empowerment, special human abilities and other weird shit. He will explain it better by presenting the film at the beginning of each session. The film is approximately 60 minutes long and there are three screenings on Sundays at 5:00 p.m., 7:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. All proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Detroit Public School System Music Education and the Underground Music Academy. —Randiah Camille Green

Screenings at 5 p.m., 7 p.m. and 9 p.m. on Sunday, May 29 at Cinema Detroit; 4126 Third Street, Detroit. Tickets are $8 and can be purchased online in advance at axisrecords.com. Seats are limited to 100 people per show and doors open 30 minutes before each screening. No photography or video recording is allowed inside the theater.
