    For anyone on the fence about going to this show, get off your ass and go. Incredible energy! This lineup really captures the lightning in a bottle that was, and will forever be, the MC5. 

    damn it. I missed them............ who was playing bass?
    Billy Gould. And he was on fire!

    good stuff!

    The best show I’ve seen in a while (that includes two PJ “away shows”).  This was pure, nasty, in your face rock n rock.

    By that logic is Pearl Jam a bunch of 50 something’s trying to reclaim their youth?

    What is your mandatory retirement age for musicians?

    MC5 my friend was probably the most vicious raw band around, and assaulted anyone in their path....a shit load more than Pearl Jam could ever do (which PJ would agree with)
    Just watch the below....watch and learn

    Every time I drive past that place, I envision the video you posted.  The guy whose name is at the top of all the old Detroit concert posters (uncle Russ Gibb) was a teacher at my high school.  He used to have some wild stories about the Grande Ballroom.  Can't wait for the show in Detroit.

    Found this video of "Starship" from the Philly show.  For me, this was one of the highlights.

    We decided on St. Andrew's....love that joint, and steps away from The Detroiter for some heavy pre-drinking
