This past weekend, I went to Detroit to see Sargent House label mates Russian Circles and Helms Alee in concert. Both bands were on tour celebrating new albums with the former acting as the headliner. I’ve written about my love of both bands several times on the site, so when I saw that they were touring together, it was a no-brainer that I had to attend.
So, onward I ventured into Mexicantown on a Sunday night to El Club, a venue I’d heard about but had never been to. First off, let me say that I really dug that spot. Good prices on drinks (beer that was under $5 at a concert? Be still, my heart!), a large enough room for a few hundred people, a good lighting setup, and a patio with a fire pit, a beer garden, and comfortable seating. It’s probably become my favorite venue in the Southeast Michigan area, and I’ve been to a lot!
Feeling rather comfortable and at ease in my surroundings, I was able to relax and appreciate what was to come, which was a night of damn good music.
