Jesse, David and Joey C. are all as strong, strapping and silly as ever, but sadly, the band has a man down. Dear friend and bassist Brian O'Connor has come down with the cancer and is recuperating at home in LA for a while. Like a lot of us, Brian doesn't have health insurance, so the boys & friends have taken it upon themselves to help him fight the evil cancer and the hefty cost by setting up a donation site and fundraiser shows. Any help is greatly appreciated. Brian is expected to be good as new very soon; the kick-ass Abby Travis has been filling his giant shoes for him while he heals. Detroit sends their love, BOC!
Artificial Agent opened up to a very restless audience that just about cracked the foundation when they started pounding the stage and chanting for the band to come out. Detroit was already steaming that night and with the crowd boiling over the room was a sweaty mess. EODM strutted onstage with their usual cool charm; with the combination of Jesse's new beard and their fancy lady bassist, they were rockin' a slight resemblance to Electric Mayhem. The relationship between Detroit and The Eagles of Death Metal is based on a deep mutual love of rock n roll and it clearly shows when they play here. The collective joy-frenzy and the power of EODM's performance almost melted the fuckin place. Motorcityblog was given a glorious shout-out and Hard Luck was claimed as the unofficial "official EODM vodka". The Assistant and I were able to grab a handful of dark, gritty pictures and some dim video of the show shot from backstage. We did our best. Deal with it. Bad Dream + Make a Bang! & Speaking in Tongues
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...I'll see YOU all SATURDAY, Bitches!!! It's gonna be extra Motorcity Special.
Peace, Love, Death Metal,
