Yea...It got over a little after 10 PM here. Wanted to get my hands on a stylophone, but didn't get a chance. I'll type up a review soon, but i'm too tired tonight.

They started at around 8:45 and got done at about 10:15. Great show. They really didn't say anything during the show just went straight from song to song.

Nope it didn't really seem to be much different from any of their other shows which was unfortunate I was really hoping they'd do something special in Detroit. Not much to complain though it was an awesome show.

Did the Black Lips finally convince Jack to come out and pee on things or are they saving that for their last stint together?

good solid show. it was a fun time. favorites were rich kid blues, carolina drama, and of course blue veins (as always). i was stoked to hear hold up!! i was worried they might not play it, and it sounded wonderful. that new song about the coca cola and soft serve ice cream is fantastic!!! i love it. i was hoping hearing attention live would change my mind about the song, but i still cant get into it, it always just kinda falls flat for me, despite the killer baseline (and there was a nice solo in it tonight as well) but still....but yeah, awesome show. gots me a stylophone because im stylin' like that.

the black lips were good...but as great of a band as they are, i love the shit out of them, something was lost with them playing i such a large venue. maybe its because the crowd didnt know who the fuck they were....btu i think they just thrive in smaller compact settings where the vibe can be far more combustible.

Show was okay...Pretty lukewarm, really. Didn't feel 100% at all, which really disappointed me. Jack was tight-lipped and...When did they turn into a jam band?

I took some pretty okay photos, though.

You can find them *here*
