Here's what's going on in town today

Good day on this spring-like Thursday.

Thursday is karaoke night in Lansing — at least it would seem that way, if you looked at our music listings. At least half a dozen local bars have karaoke or open mic nights tonight, in addition to the host of venues that have professional performers onstage tonight. Check in with Live and Local in our print issues or What's up in Lansing online to keep up to date with live music — and opportunities to get yourself on stage, too.

For more local events, see below.
