Mindless Self Indulgence @ The Fillmore Detroit 4/20/13 (Photos, Concert Review, & Setlist)

By Alexis Simpson

Mindless Self Indulgence mixed rowdy punk rock with a little bit of rap, and delivered a quirky one-of-a-kind performance this past Saturday at The Fillmore Detroit. Props to the fans for coming dressed in colorful edgy attire and bright easter egg hair. This tour is in support of MSI’s new album being released next month, How I learned to Stop Giving a Shit and Love.

Back in the day MSI opened for Detroit’s own Insane Clown Posse, but has now developed their own cult-like following. The stage setup for the night was wide-open and clean with only one mic-stand, two small backdrops, and a mini-drum kit. This setup allowed for Jimmy Urine to move across the stage like a madman, and in the process almost take out a few of us photographers with his long white pole:)

All members of the band were experts at interacting with their audience. Frontman Urine was a chatterbox between songs. He playfully poked fun at Detroit by saying that we looked like “the kind of people that need a hug.” He also told anybody who claims Mumford & Sons and The Lumineers as their favorite bands should go kill themselves, although liking a few of their songs was acceptable. Near the end of the show Jimmy Culture looked around the venue and exclaimed, “We look professional! When did that happen?” He definitely stayed true to being a professional punk rocker when he threw out something into the audience and told them that the object was “anal beads for anal sex.” HA!

Lyn Z is the wifey of the dreamy Gerard Way, former frontman of My Chemical Romance. Lyn Z and Kitty pulled together their girl power to make a strong impression on the crowd due to their ability to rock and have fun doing it. Steve Righ? looked and acted the part of a rock guitarist with his long hair and tough guy appearance as he walked across the stage with his middle finger out. The four members fit extremely well together and have managed to carve their own niche in the punk rock scene.

Members:
Jimmy Urine – Vox & Programming
Steve, Righ? – Guitars
Lyn Z – Bass
Kitty – Drums
