Dirt (AIC Tribute) & ReTooled at Diesel

Posted: 5 February 2023 by Robbie

Gonna keep it five paragraphs here. Not up to making a novel out of this show. For the second time, I have seen Dirt (Tribute to Layne Staley’s AIC). The first time was with Sunset Blvd. at the Token Lounge. Also, a month earlier, a woman approached me saying she runs the Token Lounge and […]


Sunset Blvd at Motor Cafe

Posted: 8 January 2023 by Robbie

First show for 2023 and it didn’t disappoint, sans the long wait. I’m not going to write seven long paragraphs about this very night. So, to sum it all up, I ran into a “George Michael,” “Bob Seger,” “Tom Cruise,” “Mark Slaughter,” and also Flavor Flav showed up to this gig and did a song. […]


Visiting Lansing & The Michigan State Capitol

Posted: 28 December 2022 by Robbie

My trip to Lansing was a bit of a bummer at some point. I was driving on some wet roads was trying to keep some distance between me and the cars & trucks in front. It was spraying that dirty water and I had to use my windshield wipers to get that off my windshield. […]


Thanksgiving Eve: Motor City Rockers & Been There Done That

Posted: 25 November 2022 by Robbie

My Thanksgiving Eve started with seeing the Motor City Rockers. This game wasn’t as dramatic as the two games I previously went to. No fights and just a few scuffles. The Rockers beat the Wolves 5-2 with the Rockers scoring four goals in the first period. Declan Conway got 2 goals and 3 assists in […]


I Found Carmen San Diego & Waldo / Sunset Blvd Halloween

Posted: 17 October 2022 by Robbie

I guess this is the 566th time I’ve seen Sunset Blvd. This was a Halloween gig and finding Carmen San Diego was quite an amazing find (after 30 years, played the game first in 1992), heh-heh. Anyways, this will be a short post and I think the 6 or 7 people who often visit this […]


Motor City Rockers First Game!

Posted: 14 October 2022 by Robbie

This game was quite exciting. I think the teams just wanted to smack and beat the shit out of each other much opposed to scoring goals. As said in a previous post, FPHL was supposed to give Detroit a team in the upcoming 2021-22 season but that didn’t happen. And we wait a year and […]


Sunset Blvd at the Diesel – Sep 2022

Posted: 18 September 2022 by Robbie

For the five or six people (or seven now) who follow this blog, Yes, I’ve seen this band about 500 times. This would’ve been 502 with the two shows they did last month (August 2022), but I couldn’t attend due to being at my Uncle’s Memorial, and the other time, I had to work until […]


Holy Toledo!

Posted: 26 August 2022 by Robbie

TL;DR: I spent the day in Toledo, Ohio. Went to the Toledo Zoo, a bar called Cock N Bull, and to a Toledo Mud Hens game that had a lot happen. Took the trip from Metro Detroit to Toledo. I have passed Toledo quite a few times in my life but never set foot in […]


The Big Bike Ride at Stony Creek Park

Posted: 22 August 2022 by Robbie

I did it! Did a 5-lap / 30-mile ride around Stoney Creek Park. Not going to write five paragraphs about my victory so I will keep it to two or three. I was gunning for six laps (36 miles) but began to have some extreme cramps going up the steep hills on the 4th and […]


Friday Tigers Game

Posted: by Robbie

I’m a few days late on this one and don’t have much to say about this Tigers game on Friday 19 August 2022. It was boring as hell. The Angels won 1-0 with Jared Walsh hitting the sole run in. Got to see Ohanti play, was hoping to see him pitch but that was Sunday […]
