Lansing, Michigan's People's Temple were at the end of their US tour. It was suppose to end in Chicago but I had been wanted the band consisting of two set of brothers to come to rock the city I live in, Port Huron, Michigan, for a couple years now. Every time we thought we had a night would work something on either my end or there's always ended putting the kibosh on it. Finally the stars aligned and, DAMN, what a doozy of a show. Being on the road playing every night for a few makes meant the band were tight as all get out. They played for they're sometimes punky, occasionally folky, usually garage psychedelic garage rock-n-roll sounds around an hour and a half and played every song in their canon (and then some...the crowd made them play "Louie, Louie". They said they didn't really know how to play it but we didn't care.)
Opening the show were the Eroders, featuring Josh and Blake of the excellent modish/punkish band Instant Party, out of Detroit. Playing quick blasts
of teenage thrash and caveboy trash inflected punk rock they got the
evening off on the right foot.
