31 days Untill
The Dally in the Alley
Well today is a Very light day in Detroit Rock City, since it been out i deciede to put some recent review of two big show in the last three Days one was in Ann Arbor and the other in Downtown last night.
I was not there but the two daliy paper were The free press took to Ann Arbor for Sold - out Racountures and the News was downtown for the nearly sold-out Gnarls Barkley show.
First to Ann Arobor on saturday night where almost a pack house of 1,700 at the Michigan Theater Here is part of the gig as posted on the Detroit Free Press Web Sight:
White and Benson played off one another in a wiry set that saw the White's blues-rock chops ultimately dominating the 70-minute set.
The show's opening stretch, led by a raucous "Intimate Secretary" and taut "Level," was pleasant enough if not exactly rapturous. The band, which offered minimal talk between songs, dispensed with its big single, "Steady, As She Goes," early on. It was followed by the night's big weak spot, the tepid "Together," with White and Benson swapping vocals and acoustic guitar licks.
It was during Benson's straight-ahead cover of "It Ain't Easy" -- best known in its David Bowie form -- that White's feral intensity stopped operating within the mix and began to take over the show. While the Raconteurs have clearly gelled into an accomplished four-man ensemble during a summer of touring, the band Saturday night was ultimately a platform for the magnetic intensity of the White Stripes leader, who was often a blur of motion and hair.

Last night the neo-soul group Gnarls Barkley was in town for a big time gig there and it was the second time in Four days that there was a Foot Jam in downtown with a gig at the state theater and a tigers game across the street at Comerica Park. the duo of Danger Mouse and Cee-Lo and there backing band was dress up as medical costumes for the show,
They play a mixture of tunes of there Debut Album and a lot of covers including "Who Scared You" by the Doors.
Here what Mekeisha Madden Toby of The Detroit News (Yes, she the TV Writer at the paper reviewing a live gig)say when there were playing there Summer song "Crasy"
But the fans came to hear "Crazy," Gnarls’ ubiquitous, signature summer anthem. When they finally got to this song, the screams reached an all-time high, in turn transforming Cee-Lo’s scowl into a blindingly bright grin.
