Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

The old saying goes, “March comes in like a lion, and goes out like a lamb.” This is very troubling to me. March came in like a lamb this year and I’m wondering if we’re going to hear a loud roar by the end of the month. Baa!

Weekend Roundup

1. The Moth Story Slam - The theme for the once-a-month event at Cliff Bell's is "busted." Tell a story about being busted or busting someone or just watch and be entertained. You can also become a judge. March 4th.

2. Metro Times Blowout Festival - 200 local bands will be playing at 15 venues in Hamtramck. Crawl from bar to bar and immerse yourself in the local music scene. March 3-6.

3. Detroit Kennel Club Dog Shows - In addition to the normal judging, the show also includes demonstrations of search and rescue, canine first aid, Leader Dogs for the Blind, flyball, and much more. March 6-7.

4. Detroit Independent Film Festival - In its first year, this 5-night film festival is dedicated to showing short films from Michigan and around the world. Now through March 7th.

5. Rain: A Tribute to The Beatles - Transport yourself back in time and follow the Fab Four from their first appearance in the U.S. through to their hippie stage, featuring nearly 200 songs. March 7th.

Bonus: Are you in Olympics withdrawal? Don't fret; there is a Benefit Figure Skating Exhibition for CARE House of Oakland County (Facebook link) on Saturday, March 6th. 2010 Winter Olympics ice dancing silver medalists Meryl Davis and Charlie White will make a guest appearance.

Double Bonus: Don't forget that the Academy Awards are on this Sunday, March 7th. If you're sick of the normal Oscar ballots check out these free Oscar Bingo cards.
