Here's what's going on in town today.


Happy Thursday!

Local folk singer/songwriter Monte Pride presents an intimate evening of music Thursday in the latest installment of Music at the Mansion at the Turner-Dodge House. Pride blends haunting lyrics with fingerstyle guitar playing to create a brand of folk music reminiscent of folk masters Paul Simon and Bob Dylan, while also incorporating modern influences like the Tallest Man On Earth and the Soil & the Sun. Thursday’s set list includes music from Pride’s recently released album, “Hawthorne Morning Sound.” 7 p.m. $10. Turner- Dodge House, 100 East North St., Lansing. (517) 483-4220.
