So, I'm on an email list for Social Distortion. I like to get updates on when they're playing shows, just in case they ever get anywhere near Michigan. They play in CA all the time, but I got an email recently with touring updates and lo and behold my favorite lead singer of my favorite band in the world is coming to town!
They never come to town!
I scan the list and see Detroit. Yes! and then I see they're playing May 19.
Of course I'm out of town. In London.
By then I'll be eyeballs-deep in Chelsea Flower Show shenanigans.
I want Mike Ness!
