3 & 4 WED & THU • MUSIC Dub is a Weapon — The Village Voice describes Dub is a Weapon as "Drum and bass coming so hard and dangerous you can see the competition’s bloodstains." Combining the trippy atmospheric sounds of Dub and the roots rhythms of reggae music, this eclectic NYC group’s recent popularity in the Midwest has forced them to bring their sternum-shaking act back to the frigid wilds of the metropolitan Detroit area. They will perform on Wednesday, March 3 at the Blind Pig (208 S. First St., Ann Arbor) with A Dub Supreme Sound System and on Thursday, March 4 at the Detroit Art Space (101 E. Baltimore, Detroit) with the same opening act. Call 313-664-0445 for further information.

6 SAT • MUSIC Coldstock — Want to keep the blues alive? Well, that’s the question on No Cover Production’s Mike Boulan’s lips these days. From his basement in Oak Park, this soundman-turned-promoter/producer has been churning out local blues music for over 10 years now. In fact, his summer Heatstock festival has been known to bring out such local luminaries as Johnnie Bassett, R.J. Spangler and Jim McCarty, but Boulan felt that Heatstock simply wasn’t enough — hence the seasonal Coldstock is born! For $25 attendees will receive a No Cover CD of their choice and all the eats, drinks and merriment they can stand. Performers will include "Lonesome" Dave Paul, James Glass, Bobby Murray, Lucas, Buck ’N’ The System and The Headstock Review featuring Motor City Josh, Curtis Sumter, Cathy Davis, Paul "Big Daddy" Baker and "Monster" Chuck Lyons. At the Hastings Street Ballroom (715 E. Milwaukee, Detroit). Call 248-398-6877 or visit www.nocover.net for further low down.

9 TUE • MUSIC Daniel Roth — If a guitar can be referred to as an axe then the pipe organ should be considered the veritable guillotine of instruments. Known for its mammoth size and deeply resonant sound, the pipe organ’s bold intonation is rarely enjoyed by the workaday music lover. Also fairly obscure to the average Joe would be the prowess of one of the world’s leading organ virtuosos, Daniel Roth. A native of France, Roth has held several prestigious positions in the music world, including Titular Organist at St. Sulprice in Paris and Artist-in-Residence of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.. This week he graces the Motor City with a very rare performance. Expect to hear the music of Mendelssohn, Bach, Widor, Messiaen, Vierne and two of Roth’s own classical compositions. At the Metropolitan United Methodist Church (8000 Woodward Ave., Detroit.) Call 313-875-7407 for further information.

5 &7 FRI & SUN • THEATER The Love of Zabaugh — The Zabaugh Follies returns once again for another installment of its theatrical play/cabaret/variety show. The Love of Zabaugh is set in an allegedly mid-century nightclub, featuring chorus girls, dancing and singing-a-plenty, as well as some damn funny vaudeville bits. It weaves a tangled tale of several love triangles among the cast members, interspersed with musical numbers, some original pieces, some covers — including a somewhat questionable Bee Gees tune. The theme of the show is tremendously complemented the delightful atmosphere of the Hastings Street Ballroom; with the venue’s cabaret-style seating where audience members can smoke and drink, it really does feel like a nightclub of yore. It’s the perfect place to take a date, and a refreshing change of pace from the same old movie/play/bar humdrum of entertainment. Original, funny, charming and different. The Hastings Street Ballroom is located at 715 E. Milwaukee, Detroit. Call 313-873-2955 for ticket information. There will also be performances on Friday, March 12 and Saturday, March 13.
