venue details

  • St. Andrew's Hall

    "Since 1980, historic St. Andrews Hall in downtown Detroit has brought trend-setting music to Detroit audiences. During the early 1980s, everyone from British New Wave groups like New Order to the then-college radio bands like R.E.M. played St. Andrews Hall. When alternative music was still truly alternative, St. Andrews Hall was the place to see these avant-garde bands: The Red Hot Chili Peppers played there as early as 1984; Jane's Addiction first played in 1988; in 1989, long before grunge, Soundgarden played there. At the forefront of musical trends, these breakthrough artists have graced the stage of St. Andrews Hall: Smashing Pumpkins in 1989; Nine Inch Nails in 1990, Nirvana and Pearl Jam in 1991, Alice in Chains in 1992, Green Day in 1994, Oasis in 1995. The ballroom which holds 1,000 people, is a favorite venue among musicians as well as concert-goers because of its acoustics and perfect sight lines."

This Christian post-punk alt-rock band has been spreading the Good News through the medium of good music for 11 years, and they have more success than most because, so be frank, the band doesn’t suck. There’s little self-righteous preach here, rather the lyrics are intelligent and the tunes are catchy. You don’t have to be a Christian to enjoy them, although it does help. Damn, the singer’s name is Christian (Stephen Christian, that is). He says, “I’m not a preacher, I’m an entertainer.” Hallelujah. The band put out the Vital album in 2012, proof that they are still going strong. Paper Route opens the show.
