Tuesday nights at Pony, with ggnzla's "I Hate Karaoke", are always a blast and last night was A+ extra fun. I was already home in my pajamas when I got a text saying that Shannon from Light Asylum and Nicola from ADULT. were singing duets and just generally hanging out at 'the Stables.
I talked to Adam of ADULT. for quite some time. Turns out we lived in the same apartment building in Detroit in the late 90s—the Phillips Manor on East Willis. He even remembered the time I confused a whole bunch of juggalos, who were waiting in line for an ICP show at the Majestic Theatre in front of our building, by throwing cooked potatoes at their feet from the window of my apartment.
He said he thought Pony was a great bar, and told me ADULT. is never playing any more daytime shows. He also said he doesn't care "if Detroit ever gets "better" or "worse"—it's perfect just the way it is now."
ADULT. play Neumos tonight, with Peter Hook & the Light, and Nightmare Fortress. Light Asylum also play at Neumos, this Friday, with Little Boots, Young Galaxy, and MNDR. Both are part of the awesomeness that is the Decibel Festival (thanks, Sean Horton!)
