One of our fave robotic buds, Honda’s ASIMO, will be coming to Detroit May 13 to conduct the city’s Symphony Orchestra as part of a performance with cellist Yo-Yo Ma. He will be performing to “Impossible Dream” to draw attention to the DSO’s music education program for younger listeners. He will also be on display to music students May 14, who get to learn what he can do as well as get a lesson from the Master of Strings. We will try to get a peek at the bot when he arrives, so if you plan on going, save us a seat.

They are also promoting a program they initiated last year whereby if you pre-ordered Red Hot Chili Pepper tickets, you got earlier access than those who bought them from other outlets. Now you will not only get that privilege, you also get to pre-order selected digital albums. There is no information yet on just which artists will be a part of the plan, so contact Ticketmaster for details.
