Put your ear to the pavement on Military Street in downtown Port Huron and you just might hear the beat of an almost unimaginably vibrant live music scene - one that vanished more than a half-century ago with the burning of the Dome in 1971.

"In the '50s, there were 17 clubs in Port Huron doing music almost seven nights a week," said Chris Troy, the St. Clair-based producer and director of the new film "Something in the Water: The History of Port Huron Music, Part I."

In the early 1960s, Joni Mitchell played the Folk Cellar, below the old Military Street Cafe. So did Gordon Lightfoot. In a coup, Troy interviewed Joni for the movie. Premiering at McMorran Auditorium in Port Huron on Nov. 11. Tickets here

After releasing two ambitious studio albums and relentlessly touring for the last three years, Providence, Rhode Island–based, avant-rock trio Arc Iris is ready to unveil its next project to the world— a complete re-imagination of Joni Mitchell’s seminal album Blue. Whereas acoustic guitars and minimal arrangements are some of the hallmarks of Mitchell’s original recording, Arc Iris’s interpretation mixes the sounds of symphonic analogue synths, heavy drum beats, and sampling, while the iconic songs themselves are never swallowed up by the tide of these inventive arrangements. Arc Iris began as a solo project by Jocie Adams, a former member of The Low Anthem. LIVE STREAMED AT 6PM EST! More information here
