Garbage is coming... to Detroit

The new Garbage album is out next month. They've announced a few tour dates, and unfortunately none of them are Cleveland. We've seen them now four times, once for each album plus an opening spot for Smashing Pumpkins. So far, the closest tour date is in Detroit at the State downtown. It's on a Wednesday. Do we do the college-aged thing and go to the show? We did see NIN that way in Detroit (or technically, Auburn Hills).

I just don't want to miss them. Seeing them four times sounds great but that was over the course of ten years! The last time was three years ago, in 2002.

As an aside, what's that part of Detroit looking like these days? It used to be a dump, but I haven't been there since probably '96, before the new ballpark.

Jeff, the area around the State isn't bad at all. The new baseball staduium, *and* Ford Field (the Lions play in downtown now too) are in the "Fox Theater District" where the State is on the fringe of.

Everything north of the State however, that's a different story. I might actually try to snag tickets for this show too, I've never seen Garbage live.

Jeff, it's safe enough I let Ian drive down to the State for concerts. In fact, he's likely to be at that one too, not that you'd notice in the crowd that will attend.
