Rock 'n' roll should be outrageous. A rock show is one of the few opportunities we're afforded in contemporary society to let our emotions run unfiltered and do as the Rolling Stones put it: "Get yer ya-yas out."
Unfortunately, the current musical paradigm has focused more on compelling and unusual instrumentation than unhinged lunacy at maximum volume.
Swing by Neurolux tonight, though, and you'll get a chance go a little good old-fashioned nuts with Electric Six.
The Detroit rockers have had a few minors hits with songs like "Danger High Voltage," "Dance Commander" and "Gay Bar," but have mainly built their reputation on high-energy, high-volume live shows.
Electric Six was originally scheduled to play Neurolux last October, but had to cancel that show along with several others because of a family emergency within the group.
The show starts at 8 p.m. and tickets are $10. The Constellations are opening.
