our picks


in Downtown Ferndale

Loads of makers, artists and crafters will sell their wares at this annual outdoor street fest, which also has loads of food and a kids zone. Musical headliners are Joe Hertler & The Rainbow Seekers (9:30 p.m. Fri.), Reverend Peyton’s Big Damn Band (9:30 p.m. Sat.) and Mustard Plug and Bear vs. Shark (7 and 8:30 p.m., respectively, Sun.). 6 p.m.-midnight Fri., 11 a.m.-midnight Sat. and 11 a.m.-11 p.m. Sun. Free. East Troy, east of Woodward, Ferndale.


at Red Bull House of Art

Organized by quilt artist Ben Venom, the latest exhibit at Red Bull House of Art opens Friday with works by Rose Eken, Bob Gorman, Laurel Roth Hope, Dennis McNett and more. The craft-based, functional works will feature themes of ritual, sexuality and power using textiles, ceramics and other media. 7-10 p.m. Fri. Free. 1551 Winder, Detroit.


at Fillmore Detroit

Tickets to comedian John Mulaney’s “Kid Gorgeous” tour stop at Fillmore Detroit 7 p.m. Saturday sold out so fast that two extra shows were added. Tickets are still available for the 10 p.m. Saturday and 7 p.m. Sunday shows. Mulaney is best known for his stand-up comedy, but he was also a writer for “Saturday Night Live.” His Fox sitcom “Mulaney” fizzled out after just one season. Seems fans would rather see him live than as a fictionalized version of himself on television. $39 and up. 2115 Woodward, Detroit. (313) 961-5451.


at Detroit Opera House

Traveling from Rome, the Sistine Chapel Choir, or “the Pope’s Choir” will perform in Detroit for the first time Saturday. This performance is part of the ensemble’s first return to the United States in 30 years. 7:30 p.m. Sat. $54-$500. 1526 Broadway, Detroit. (313) 237-7464.
