Last year found the cosmic country cowboys of Detroit’s Bonny Doon celebrating the release of their Woodsist label debut, Longwave, as well as having landed three supporting tour gigs with Band of Horses, Snail Mail, and Waxahatchee. Though Bonny Doon, (Bill Lennox, Bobby Colombo, Joshua Brooks, and Jake Kmiecik) took to the woods of Northern Michigan to churn out the shimmery rock twang and contemplative counter-savior narratives of Longwave, they’re keeping it close to home with a lineup alongside Sung Water, Cultural Fog, and DJ Chris Calandro.

Bonny Doon will perform with Sung Water and Cultural Fog starting at 9 p.m. on Saturday, May 11, at UFO Factory; 2110 Trumbull Ave., Detroit; Tickets are $10-$12.
