There are more than just warmer temperatures to look forward to this spring. While we’re all counting down to festival season, the coming months also bring an amazing lineup of indoor entertainment happening across the city—whether you’re a craft beer connoisseur, a theatre lover, or just looking for a new experience.

Kinker’s Night

Kinker’s Night

Saturday, April 18, 8-10 p.m.

Resurgence Art Collective, 3109 Riberdy Rd.

Hosted by a variety of rotating artists, this monthly event features local talent testing their latest material and ironing out the “kinks” in their show. From aerial acrobatics and juggling to stand-up comedy, beatboxing, and dance, audiences are treated to a wide range of jaw-dropping performances. (Be prepared to do a lot of “ooh-ing and aah-ing.”)

“Kinker’s Night is fun for so many reasons,” says past audience member Kim F. “It gives people who are working on their acts a chance and opens people up to so many new things that they wouldn’t normally come across.” Tickets are $10 and are available at the door or online at www.resurgenceartscollective.com

Masters of the Brewniverse

Masters of the Brewniverse

Saturday, April 18, 1-11 p.m.

Downtown Windsor Business Accelerator, 1501 Howard Ave.

With an epic ’80s playlist, classic arcade games, and exclusive beers from some of the area’s top breweries, the newest event from WindsorEats is sure to be, like, totally rad. This one-day event encourages friendly competition and gives breweries the opportunity to flex their creative muscles and experiment with new recipes.

“It’s a unique opportunity for craft beer lovers to get away from the same old and try something truly different,” says event organizer Adriano Ciotoli.

There are two sessions throughout the day with the winners being crowned at the end of the evening. Two awards are up for grabs: People’s Choice and Master of the Brewniverse, which will be decided by a panel of judges.

For tickets, visit www.windsoreats.com (’80s style is optional but encouraged).

Windsor Light Music Theatre Presents: Chicago

Windsor Light Music Theatre Presents: Chicago

May 1-10, various show times

The Chrysler Theatre, 201 Riverside Dr. West

Looking for a little “razzle dazzle” this spring? WLMT’s Chicago is a production not to be missed. For those unfamiliar with the original 1926 play (or the 2003 Academy Award-winning film), this “musical vaudeville” follows the story of chorus girl Roxy Hart. Convicted and sentenced to death row after shooting her lover, Roxy joins forces with fellow “Merry Murderess” Velma Kelly in search of the American Dream: fame, fortune, and acquittal.

“I continue to be drawn to Chicago because of its simplicity,” says John Luther, now in his fifth run as director-choreographer of this classic show. “There is good storytelling, sexy dancing, a great score, and a good way to poke fun at politics and the judicial system.” For showtimes and tickets, visit www.windsorlight.com.
