If you are still looking to plan your evening, here are five events going on in southeast Michigan that you should consider.

The Fillmore is always a great place to catch a fun concert, but the venue also knows how to throw a fun new year’s party. The Chicago-Las Vegas style affair will feature a variety of the area’s best DJ’s and dancers, strolling entertainers like stilt walkers and illusionists, a champagne reception, a live countdown from Times Square, and more. The event is expected to sell out, so be sure to get your tickets soon.
