Necto

From its exterior, little can be inferred about the bowels of Necto, but once inside Ann Arbor’s hottest dance club, you’re greeted with a massive dance floor, hazy lights and a stage (outfitted with poles for you to practice some moves on if you’ve attended any of Polarity’s pole classes). The ceilings are noticeable high, and there’s at least 50 feet of bar on the first floor alone lined with servers ready to put you out of your misery. All this before you even starting grooving to some Lady Gaga tracks. Would I say that Necto is a lawless wasteland?

Porches perform at El Club in Detroit

Aaron Maine, the frontman and creative genius behind Porches, is a man who definitely knows how to move his hips. With each groovy pop hit (whether he was donning a guitar or not), more often than not Maine would be swaying with each syncopated beat. Entrancing and enticing, Maine captivates a crowd with little more than his rhythmic movements and a tempting stare.

NOSELL

The video chronicles the experiences of people staying at the same motel, mapping out different emotions in their separate lives and following the maid who cleans up the aftermath — there’s destructive children, lovers in the bathtub, a duo dancing in a haze, a couple in a bitter argument and a family trying to cope with their displacement by a hurricane.
