Andrew Jackson Jihad at Crescent Ballroom
Some guy spat on my face, I have random bruises all over my legs, and even though I only drank water, I reek of beer.
The crowd booed and yelled "fuck you" to Andrew Jackson Jihad...looks like Andrew Jerkson Jerkwad needs to go back to Chicago and stay there for good.
Welcome 2 My Pudding at Comerica Theatre
They don't call it a variety show for nothing. Most of the crowd for last night's Welcome 2 My Pudding, the 11th installment of local restauranteur, golfer, and shock rocker Alice Cooper's long running Christmas Pudding event, was more interested in seeing guys like Kip Winger than Brian "Head" Welch.
But the diverse -- let's call it scattered, even -- lineup, which featured John Corabi (Motely Crue), Bruce Kulick (KISS), Gary Mule Deer, Runaway Phoenix with guitarist Orianthi (who also plays in Alice's band), Kip Winger, and headliners Brian "Head" Welch, The Tubes, Rob Halford, and Alice himself, was united for a cause, Alice Cooper's Solid Rock Foundation.
