The Bright Light Social Hour - "Detroit" - Live at Stubb's in Austin
Yes folks--I was there that night to enjoy the music of fellow Southwestern Univ. alums Curtis and Jack. The group won six awards during the 2011 South by Southwest including Band of the Year, Album of the Year, Best Bass Guitar, Best Keyboardist, Best Producer and Song of the Year (for "Detroit").
Note: I do not receive any financial incentives or non-financial incentives by the band or any of its associates. This is posted since it fits under this group's guidelines to post about "all things Texan".
This is the first of three videos from the Austin concert at Stubb's on September 29, 2012.

1. I note that they do not go to the actual Detroit.
If you celebrate a city, do so in that city.
It's my home town. It needs help.
I support this, but it makes me sad.

2. I did not see Detroit on their list for this year or for the end of 2012.
However, they were in Kalamazoo. It is possible that they played there prior to 2012 since I know that they toured through the Midwest and along the East Coast, but I agree that they need to include you in the lineup whenever they return to your area again. If they are near, then I hope you get to check them out since they are a very talented band.
I did some additional research online and noted this:
Struggling under the weight of 29 percent umemployment, Detroit is pure heartache. The city that gave us Motown and manufactured our way to victory in World War II is now left to face the worst of the Great Recession. It was easy to love Detroit when we got Cadillacs and Aretha Franklin out of the deal. Yet now as our nation's foremost manufacturing center sinks deeper into the red, most Americans seem to be listening with a skeptical ear to the pleas from the Arsenal of Democracy. Thus we sing our plaintive refrain...
