U-Con is Michigan's largest gaming convention (https://www.ucon-gaming.org/) and is held locally in the fall (October/November).
However, the rest of the year the Games Library lies unused and games not played are sad gamed indeed. Every second Sunday (usually - check the schedule), we select a small handful of games to bring to ABCM and invite anyone and everyone to come play.
Bring your friends, bring your games, bring your friend's games and have some fun.

Based in Ann Arbor, MI, Chirp is a four-piece band that does it's fair share of genre-hopping, but often plays in the styles of progressive rock/funk, and jazz-fusion. Though officially formed in Fall 2015, they have a lot of experience playing together in previous bands and jam sessions. Chirp mixes originals and covers into their live sets and aims to put together grabbing, dynamic shows. They have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with bands like Marbin, Broccoli Samurai, Desmond Jones, and Stormy Chromer. Recordings of original material will be made live and in the studio throughout 2016, as they plan on continuing to play shows in southeastern Michigan and branching out in the midwest!
