Break Anchor At The Leland

After a long day of work, Christie and I made our way down to Detroit to the Leland to see Break Anchor. As usual, they put on an awesome show. Plus, the venue was a bit different, being an old ballroom complete with marble black and white checkered floors, creepy baby faces built into the walls and amazing chandeliers. The Leland obviously needs some work, making for a bit of a creepy environment, but that made it even better. 
Every time we see Break Anchor, we are surprised about the crowd. How are their shows not completely packed? We obviously can't get enough of these guys! They put on a great show and are the nicest guys too. For some background info on the band and a sample of a Break Anchor show (and what you've been missing out on), check out our interview with vocalist/guitarist Jay Navarro from the band's album release show earlier this year.

Now that I got that out, I hope that the Leland starts having shows there more often. It's a cool space. Everything about it just screams Detroit. For an added bonus, I'm pretty sure the bar in the Leland has the coolest lady bartender and the cheapest drinks around. She felt bad selling me her 'premium' beer for $3.50 (most were about $2) when she was out of what I ordered. If you feel like making it an even more interesting night, you can cut over to City Club. It had been years since I'd been there before Friday, and I'm (sort of) happy to say it is exactly the same. Luckily, my car was not broken into this time, though! I'll be sure to bring my mesh shirt and platform boots next time. 
Head over to our Facebook and check out more pictures from Break Anchor's set Friday and hope to see you all at the next show!
