The Kalamazoo Valley Museum will hold a concert Friday night highlighting local transgender and gender non-specific artists called “Unified: A Kalamazoo Music Experience.” The show starts at 7 p.m. at the museum's Stryker Theater. Admission is $5.

For years, Davison Nicholas sang and played in the rock band Two Stars Burning Sun, among many other bands. The muscley and sometimes melodic music was driving and intense.
