Halloween 2012 Detroit Mi @ the Hard Rock Café
Detroit, Michigan – A city for most touring bands, music is king here, well maybe 2nd to any sports team that reps Michigan. When I found this concert on Polestar.com, I thought, do it! So, I talked to my friend and said “Hey Everclear and Eve 6 are going to play downtown at the Hard Rock Café and “we can have dinner with the band before the show with VIP status”. I know it sounds creepy, but WTF, why not! So we did. Dinner was great, I drank more than I ate, but hell, I’m with two bands that I really love even at my age. Art Alexakis lead singer/songwriter/guitar player from Everclear was so genuine. We talk about kids, money, starting over, missing out on seeing his 5 year old daughter’s mermaid costume for Halloween. It could not have been more real.
Eve 6 lead singer and base player Max Collins is a true rockstar, he walked around the VIP dinner introduced himself and said to us “glad you could make it tonight, would you like a picture?” I said “sure why not!” nuff said.
So the concert started Eve 6’s set was awesome, they could headline any venue easy. Then Everclear played and rocked a grand slam performance, just down the street from home of the Detroit Tigers. There is nothing better than seeing bands that have been a mainstay on my playlist for at least 20 yrs. What really made it so special was it took place in a venue that might handle 100 guests total.
Listen to the double take. Eve 6 on top and, Everclear’s newest recording Invisible Star below. Go see them live if you have the chance!
Enjoy the music DB
