Saturday, March 24th - The Lucid Furs, Red Stone Souls, Bourbon Train and Trout

The Lucid Furs, Detroit's only freak rock show is putting on a special one off performance on the eve of the Marche Du Nain Rouge Parade. While others choose to banish the Nain, and finger him as the source of the cities misfortunes. We believe that the Nain Rouge is a symbol of our strength and resilience in the face of adversity. Come out on this night and help us resist the exile of the Nain Rouge.
