American musician and songwriter John Maus will be performing at El Club in Detroit on Thursday, January 31 at 8 p.m. Maus’ music has been characterized as similar to goth-pop of the 1980s for his use of synthesizer sounds and Medieval church modes. He attended the California Institute of Arts to study experimental music and received his PhD in political science from the University of Hawaii. Maus released his first album, Songs, in 2006 and his most recent album, Screen Memories, in 2017. Tickets are $20. For more information, visit facebook.com.
