Against the Current: Gravity World Tour at the Crofoot's Pike Room
Updated: October 26, 2015 - 6:45 pm

Pontiac is a place familiar to some, but the Crofoot's Pike Room was something new for me.

People are packed together like sardines because at concerts no one understands what personal space means, you would think there wasn’t enough room to swing a cat. Despite the woes of being an introvert at a performance venue, the populace seemed entombed with anticipation and doused in petulance.
