.....uh oh
First Butch album being Letters after downloading Mixtape?
Eagerly anticipating Rise and Fall as your first new Butch release?
Pumped to get the album a couple days before release?
Attending that unbearably hot Detroit concert?
....you and me may actually be the same person....

One exception though, this is far from overlooked with the people I know, it actually tends to be one of the favorites. Until the release of The Spade it was usually my go to for a rocking Butch record (even if it quiets down a bit as it goes). Canyons is still one of my most favorite tracks

But on a more important note, boy was that concert hot. When he came blasting out on stage and had the bartenders shoot water out over the audience was the only relief that whole night. Good show, but you could tell he was a bit over heated up there, and who could blame him (also opener As Fast As was fantastic and Spencer Albee is great in everything he does). Next time he came through I saw him in Grand Rapids instead, that's pretty much been my gold standard for Butch shows (although for the Spade tour I saw him in Ft. Lauderdale, and that at least tied if not surpassed it). What's everyone else's favorite Butch show?

My brother and I have done Detroit and Grand Rapids on back to back nights a few times. He hasn't come to GR in awhile though. Is the Mixtape Cafe still open?

Hmmmm, not sure . I was there when Butch played for its opening, but I don't think I've heard anything of it since.(If I google it though lots of stuff comes up, probably a good sign) Grand Rapids was a bit of a drive for me, so I tended to avoid it if I could hit a show somewhere else

As Fast As remains the best opener I've ever seen. I never really got into their independent records, but Open Letter is a favorite of mine. I remember searching for months for a recording of the ukelele cover of "Creep," but I never found it.

Locksley was pretty great as well, love them. For Spencer, if you can track down a copy of it (I think Bull Moose records website may be the only was to do so) his Spencer and the School Spirit Mafia album is fantastic, as is the solo album he put out in June (under artist name Spencer, album name Spencer, this one is on iTunes and stuff too).
