Time to Dance in the Streets



    Legendary R&B group Martha Reeves & the Vandellas will perform two shows tonight at Anthology. With hits like "Nowhere to Run" and "Dancing in the Street," their lengthy career dates back to the early '60s. Martha has also had a successful solo career, and has also spent some times in politics in her beloved city of Detroit. This is an incredible opportunity to see legendary performers in an intimate setting and should certainly be  a night to remember. Around town, the Hot Snakes perform to a sold out crowd at the Casbah, Rafter takes over the Tin Can, and Terry Malts perform at the Soda Bar.
