His brother Matt Eaton is a Detroit-based visual artist and curator, as well. Come get schooled!

The Sights + The Hard Lessons + Katie Grace @ the Majestic Theatre Pure rock and roll is what The Sights continue to deliver, and their latest record, “Left Over Right” offers more of the same great riffs juxtaposed against the same timeless melodies Eddie Baranek continue to produce. Sharp and electric, the latest incarnation of the band is fresh off the road from a national summertime tour with Tenacious D playing. The Hard Lessons are getting back into the swing of things with fan favorites jams and some killer new jams I’ve been privy to hear. Still among the best live bands this city’s ever produced. Rounding out an already awesome bill is Detroit’s alt-country vixen Katie Grace. Best $10 you’ll spend all weekend.

The Bridge Club @ TV Bar Don’t miss out on the third and final installment of The Bridge Club, Detroit's newest summer party . The evening sets out to mesh the multi-genre sounds of the West Coast with the Detroit’s underground. This is where electronic meets hip-hop. Featuring DJ House Shoes, Phat Kat, Shigeto , Elaquent, Marv One and DJ Skeez. 9 pm to 2 am. $12
