    Thanks for the eyewitness account Geoff. I don't generally watch the news but I'm guessing most reporting won't mention the bikers, or if they do, it will only be 2% of the report.

    The new report I saw just said the bikers "never showed up" other than driving by and revving their engines. I also saw a headline that said that there were about 500 people protesting Kid Rock. So neither were totally true.

    I can think of nothing dumber than this current Kid Rock situation.

    Have black kid, cut your teeth making music that idolizes black culture, relentlessly promote 85% black city and its residents...but for fuck's sake if you say or do anything opposed to prevailing liberal orthodoxy of the day (and I literally mean the "day" because it changes daily), and you are a racist white nationalist piece of shit and you'll get the Detroit Free Press claiming your show's message is "negro go home."

    I am not a fan of Kid Rock's music, but he seems like a totally reasonable and regular dude, and what they are trying to do to him is unconscionably stupid.

    It is confusing because the protest where they walked down Woodward was early in the afternoon, and they might have had 500 people for that, I wasn't down there that early. They were done by 5 or so. So yea, no bikers there for that because they were still at work. When the bikers were there, it was about 7 pm and most of the other protestors had gone home. The few NAN protestors that were left walked back to the arena and that is what I saw.

    Credit to NAN - they were highly organized professional protestors. They had private security, police escorts, and a huge media presence. The biker thing was pure grassroots. Just a bunch of patriots showing up for a concert.
