Detroit’s Service Street Community and Eastern Market Corporation have joined forces for the First Annual Service Street Fair, which takes place noon-10 p.m. Saturday (Sept. 20) on Service Street between Russell Street and Riopelle Avenue. The area’s art galleries will be open for the event, and the festival will feature performances by Derrick May, Maceo Tha Grammar God, the 1140 Collective with Nadir, and a Detroit revue featuring Thornetta Davis, Sir Mack Rice, Johnnie Bassett, Alberta Adams and RJ’s Rhythm Rockers. Admission is free. For information visit www.myspace.com/ servicestreetdetroit

The Royal Oak fixture Noir Leather kicks out the jams for its 25th anniversary on Saturday (Sept. 20) with a party that includes performances by Crud, Haflife, They Never Sleep, Car City Call Girls and others, as well as fashion and fetish shows and burlesque performers. The show takes place at the Crofoot, 1 S. Saginaw St., Pontiac. Doors open at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10, or free with a $100 purchase at Noir Leather. Call (248) 858-9333 or visit www.thecrofoot.com.

Detroit rockers Downtown Brown need a new van — and don’t mind hitting their fans up to help. The group performs a Van Fundraiser Show Friday (Sept. 19) at the Magic Stick, 4120 Woodward Ave., Detroit, topping a bill that also includes Intergalactic Ghetto Blasterz, Still Never Fading and Orange Marsupials. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Call (313) 833-9700 or visit www. majesticdetroit.com.

After a preemptive postponement of the second annual People’s Arts Festival due to severe weather predictions last weekend, the event has been rescheduled for 11 a.m.-midnight on Sunday (Sept. 21) at the Russell Industrial Center, 1600 Clay St., Detroit. It will still feature the works of more than 100 visual artists and craftspeople, nearly 50 music acts — including John Arnold, the Sugar People, 60 Second Crush, the Singles and the Tracy Kash Thomas Band — on four stages and a pair of films (“The Passenger” and the science fiction serial “InZer0”), along with restaurant and crafts exhibitors. Admission is free. For information visit www.rccadetroit.org. A discount coupon for gallery purchases at the festival is available at www.streetwiseart.com/ oaklandpress.jpg.
