Performers include

Midnight Book Club

Midnight Book Club is a longform comedic improvisation team that works to make you laugh, make you cry, make you love, and make you laugh. Midnight Book Club plays on the University of Michigan campus, on other college campuses, at College Improv Tournament in Chicago, and at Del Close Marathon in New York City.

a.n.g.e.l.i.

Kamryn Thomas, writing under the name “a.n.g.e.l.i. (a nobody given eternal life instead)”, is a bedroom producer from Cleveland. Growing up listening to her father’s basement tracks, rapping and beat making was a natural interest from a very young age. Kamryn started drumming when she was eight years old, and became most confident playing drums in church. Writing poetry and performing spoken word quickly turned into songwriting when she was a freshman in high school. Kamryn hopes to create music that combines her love for beat making and writing lyrics with the danceable, catchy music on all of her favorite playlists. She draws inspiration from performers like Tune Yards, Ravyn Lenae, Twenty One Pilots, Kamau, and her dad. Kamryn has spends most of her time in school trying to learn how to improve her sound and about matters most. If she’s not listening to music, she’s thinking about it. Peep her new single, Blast, on every music platform!

Aldo Leopoldo Pando Girard

Aldo Leopoldo Pando Girard is Ann Arbor’s Youth Poet Laureate. He was the feature poet for Poetry Night in Ann Arbor, and a member of the 2018 Ann Arbor slam team. He is currently studying vocal performance and civil engineering at U of M, and he spends a lot of his time at the Neutral Zone performing and engaging other artists.

Virago

Founded in 2018 at the University of Michigan School of Music, Virago is an ensemble that performs contemporary chamber music and free improvisation. They aim to introduce new audiences to the compelling art of free improvisation and collaborate with composers who have similar missions to create new works for our unique instrumentation. Hear a portion from a previous Virago performance at Canterbury House.
