We brought the kids in to watch the Superchunk sound check at the Magic Stick last weekend (we've known Laura for a few years and she said we could). This might have happened:

I believe the kid was solo-moshing to a cover of the Misfits' "Where Eagles Dare," which the band also played later that night:

Laura later said she should have warned me about the swears, but I was like, "That's nothing compared to what they hear when someone cuts me off on the highway." Superchunk also played a Negative Approach song for a nostalgic and enthusiastic Detroit crowd that night, and apparently that band's lead singer sometimes tends bar downstairs.

It was a great show and the songs they played from the new album sounded really great live. Did you follow that last link? While you're at the Merge website, take the chance to finally pay for a FLAC copy of that Arcade Fire album you illegally downloaded (and love) or buy someone you love the most amazing Christmas present ever: 69 Love Songs ON VINYL.
