On February 5th, Max Frost and Grizfolk came to Detroit to play at the historic music venue, The Shelter. The Shelter is where Eminem kicked off his career with rap battles, but now, it’s a venue where many small bands of all genres start off and work their way up Detroit’s many concert venues.
Max Frost opened the show and instantly caught the attention of the crowd. The crowd couldn’t take their eyes off Frost. From guitar to bass to drums, Max Frost can play it all. Multiple times throughout the set, Frost put a second guitar or bass over his first guitar to play.
Sometimes opening acts get ignored by the crowd, but Frost definitely gained fans from his captivating performance.
Next up was the headliner of the night, Grizfolk. The crowd full of fans went wild for the alternative rock band.
The band played their entire debut album, “Waking Up The Giants.” Most bands aren’t able to play their entire albums, so this was definitely a treat for fans. In addition to their album, they also played their song “Way Back When,” which was featured on the soundtrack of the movie Mr. Peabody and Sherman.
Grizfolk have an incredible energy on stage and really bring their album to life onstage. This is the first time they are performing their songs, and it doesn’t leave any disappointment to fans.
The Shelter is a small venue, but it definitely filled up. Since there is no barricade, fans in the front really get up close and personal with the live acts. The Shelter also lets people stand on a bench that’s built into the wall on one side of the venue. The Shelter really gives fans an intimate, one of a kind experience with the performers.
The concert ended a little before 10 p.m., so it could have gone a little longer, but it was an enjoyable show regardless. The only surprising thing of the night was that there was no mention of Eminem or short cover of “Lose Yourself” which is almost guaranteed at a show at the Shelter.
The Troublemaker tour is a great tour with two very talented acts. Max Frost and Grizfolk are touring the rest of February, and it’s a show you don’t want to miss. Check out the rest of the dates here.
