Sorting out the girl-group drama of the Spice Girls is as messy as say, cleaning out your actual spice cabinet.

When news of a possible Spice Girls reunion broke late last year, the spice world waited with bated breath for confirmation. Shortly after, it was revealed that Victoria Beckham, aka Posh Spice, would not be joining the tour, though she gave the girls her blessing. Last month, Mel B., aka Scary Spice, dropped the bombshell that she and Geri Horner, aka Ginger Spice, hooked up once back in the day. Thankfully, rehearsal for the semi-reunion appears to be underway. In the meantime, to celebrate the five daring women who empowered a generation with their pop-positivity are five women who simply wannabe wannabes. Hailing from Toronto, Wannabe: A Spice Girls Tribute brings spice to life with a live band, choreography, platform boots, and British accents — and a whole lotta zigazig ha.

Wannabe: A Spice Girls Tribute takes place at 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 18; 22920 Woodward Ave., Ferndale; 248-544-1991; themagicbag.com. Tickets are $15.
