People can say what they want about Detroit but I have never seen a bad concert there. Detroit has been where I’ve seen Joni Mitchell, Ben Harper, Erykah Badu, Sublime with Rome and most recently Shawn James.
If you haven’t listened to Shawn James, do yourself a favor and find him on the internet. I’ve been a fan for many years. Let me help you find him: Shawn James. Not only is he a talented musician but is a really genuine person. He talked with his fans. He signed autographs and took photos with everyone that asked.
My kid went to the concert with me without too much persuading. The kid even drove. Thank goodness because I want to pass out just looking at the Ambassador Bridge. The bridge has made multiple appearances in my nightmares.
So besides the usual drunk concert attendees, there was only one person that stood out to the kid and I. I almost don’t want to say anything because he was a true weirdo – like Ted Bundy kind of weird. On the other hand, Ted Bundy was probably more charming than this gentleman. This guy was constantly kissing his girlfriend’s cheek. He was demanding her attention throughout the whole show. He stared at her instead of watching Shawn James. It was creepy.
The girlfriend was nicer than I would’ve been. My bony little elbow may have been put to work. OMG dude – just let the girl watch Shawn James! She can look at you later. Hopefully, the weirdo never reads this. If he is asking around about this post, you don’t know me.
