As the days dwindle down …


In summer we heed Martha and the Vandellas’ call for "Dancing in the Streets." But come September around these parts, we know those days are numbered. We get in the last tail-feather shakes in the streets and at the fairs and in pumpkin patches; more and more we take refuge indoors, at the concert halls and theaters, at the galleries, at the clubs, at home in front of the television or by the stereo. Hold onto these pages, and we’ll help guide you to all of those places over the next three months — until we’re back with our first Winter Guide. And keep reading Metro Times through the season for the most comprehensive weekly listings in metropolitan Detroit.
