The stars at night, shine big & brite...Deep in the Heart of Texas. There was a fireball that made its graceful entrance then languid exit over the city skyline this evening. But it was Detroit, not Texas.
It was really random that I pulled into the city (to avoid traffic, which turned out to be "Presidential Traffic") & the President was rolling thru... Basically because I didn't know he was planning on dropping by. And because I wasn't planning on rolling in either, you can call it fate- but I wouldn't.
This "bus tour" had little of the fanfare the Prez exhibits at other locales- at least notanything at all like the flashing light circus and endless entourage of secret service agents that accompanied him on his stop at the Henry Ford Museum last year. There was a helicopter for that one. And he repelled down through the roof like that catburglar did into the Everhart Museum that one time. Just kidding. About the repelling.
There was a helicopter. (And 8 times the security)
But after all, this was Scranton.
Sidenote: I'll throw up some pics to compare the two & you'll totally see what I'm talking about.
The Hunters are a raucous band with killer presence. Grimy vocals create the perfect backdrop for brash duets that are sometimes borderline melodic. Their sound screams garage punk. Biting lyrics will rip your eardrums to shreds, while the dynamic Isabel Almeida thrashes around, unleashing the wrath of her inner fury on stage.
The Brooklyn-based band recently signed to Mom + Pop, with their debut album Hands on Fire, dropping on September 24. The first single from the album will be "Seizure."
The current lineup features Derek Watson and Isabel Almeida, both on guitar and vocals, with Odell Nails on drums and John Mikulak playing bass.
The Hunters will be touring with Hunx and His Punx this August, starting in Philly on the 9th and hitting the gritty streets of Detroit on August 21. Check them out to see what injuries they will suffer at the show- yes, they are that hardcore.
