JULY 5 >> FLYING LATINI BROTHERS

Do not be fooled. This is not a trapeze performance or a collection of airplane stunts. The Flying Latini Brothers is a blues band from Detroit headed by John Latini, and they hope to serve up as much sizzle and boom as the previous night’s Independence Day pyrotechnics. The band just released their fifth album last December titled, "The Blues Just Makes Me Feel so Good," which debuted at #1 on the Roots Music Report Michigan All-Genre Chart. Latini is a three time Detroit Blues Challenge trophy winner for his singing, guitar playing and songwriting prowess. Who is the other Latini to finish out the “Latini Brothers,” you ask? John’s brother Jim also sings and plays drums in the band. The final three members are comprised of John Sperendi on bass, Neil Donato on keyboard and Ross Huff on trumpet. 7 p.m.-9 p.m. FREE. William E. Tennant Performance Shell, 805 W. Park St., St. Johns. (989) 224-2429, clintoncountyarts.org.

JJULY 6-16 >> ELEPHANT’S GRAVEYARD

This is the story of the only known lynching of an elephant. Why would someone want to hang an elephant for its crimes? This circus-centered play focuses on the tragic intermingling of a struggling circus with small town in Tennessee set over one hundred years ago. Elephant’s Graveyard combines both fact and legend surrounding the true story of the execution of “Murderous Mary,” a five-ton Asian elephant that was once the centerpiece of Sparks World Famous Shows circus. Supposedly, Mary “viciously murdered” her trainer during a parade, with claims surrounding the event blown out of proportion by local papers. Because of this, witnesses urged she pay and nearby town threatened to turn the circus away should Mary be included. The circus decided the only solution was to publicly execute the elephant. The story is used as cautionary tale against animal abuse and highlights America’s thirst for spectacles and revenge. 8 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday. $12. Over the Ledge Theatre, 137 Fitzgerald Park Dr., Grand Ledge. (517) 318-0579, overtheledge.org.

JULY 8 >> SONGWRITERS IN THE ROUND

Have you ever wondered what the meanings behind the lyrics of your favorite songs were? The Robin Theatre has gathered three Lansing-based songwriters, Monte Pride, Michaela Stock and Aaron Gase, to perform their music and reveal the stories behind it for you Saturday. Monte Pride’s latest album “Hawthorne Morning Sound” sold out the Robin Theatre with his fingerpicking guitar style and delicate vocal accompaniment. His music has been compared to that of Simon & Garfunkel, Nick Drake and the Tallest Man on Earth. Michaela Stock, 19, hails from East Lansing and has been writing music for almost two years. Angel Olsen and Julien Baker influence her work. Aaron Gase’s lyrical based music draws inspiration from everyone from Willie Nelson to Josh Ritter. His recent releases are a solo EP called “Witnesses,” as well as an LP with band called “Modern Creature Comfort.” 6:30-10 p.m. $10. The Robin Theatre, 1105 S. Washington Ave., Lansing. (989) 878-1810, therobintheatre.com.
