The ninth annual Two Piece Fest takes place at the First Unitarian Church today. As we previously reported, the day-long event is “an exercise in mayhem and minimalism that brings the DIY scene together, one duo at a time.” This year’s line-up includes Joint Chiefs of Math, Brown Rainbow, Empty Vessels and a dozen more. Tickets and information for the all-ages show can be found here; listen to Joint Chiefs’ “Get Rich or Try Dyin'” below.

After playing a Free at Noon show at World Cafe Live yesterday, Ben Arnold continues to celebrate the release of Lost Keys at Underground Arts tonight. The record is Arnold’s sixth LP and was two years in the making. The local musician and his band brought the new material in for a Key Studio Session, which you can listen to here. Tickets and information for the record release show with The Fractals can be found here. Listen to “Detroit People” below.

The fourth annual Winter Doldrums Festival is taking place at World Cafe Live today, with proceeds benefitting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention’s David Eric Cohen Memorial Fund. This year’s line-up features performances from Matt Duke, Ginger Coyle, Ben Kessler, Song Dogs and many more.
