Been a rash of shootings at Detroit block parties lately too. At least 3 that I know of.
Of course, news of these only surfaced after I agreed to play a block party for a friend of a friend.
Went off without a hitch, but I was rather nervous. You know the block parties where shots are fired are just the tip of the iceberg of block parties. But I probably won't agree to any more unless they're in the upscale neighborhoods in the city.
