Frontiers, the Journey cover band, will be performing this Saturday 2/20 at the Magic Bag in Ferndale. I have looked them up on YouTube and watched one of their performances and was very impressed. With the carousal of band members even the real Journey seems like a cover band. So I figure paying $15 to see a cover band is like going to see the real thing.
Plus I've heard that Steve Perry isn't even with Journey anymore and let's face it. He's the reason that our generation has fallen in love with the band. That voice... that hair... those jeans. If you long for the sound of his voice, Frontiers will not disappoint. Jeremy Hunsicker briefly sung for the real Journey in 2007 and contributed some songwriting to their "Revelation" CD.
Bottom line is if you like the real Journey and would like to see them in concert don't stop believing. They currently do not have any dates scheduled. But Frontiers will welcome you with open arms to their concert tomorrow night. Go see Frontiers!
This weekend is the last weekend for the International Erotic Art Show, Dirty Show in Detroit. The show is located at Bert's Theater in the Eastern Market area on Russell. It is open starting tonight, Friday, from 7pm-2am and then also Saturday "closing night" at the same time. Tickets are $15 and can be purchased in advance at Noir Leather in Royal Oak.
The shows stated mission on the website is, "to promote, publish and propagate erotic art in all forms." I feel like that is something I can support, especially if it supports local Detroit artists and a venue in downtown. Once again this is an opportunity to support Detroit and probably catch some good people watching at the same time.
