If I could just type out the lyrics to "Danger! High Voltage" in all caps and have it suffice as an acceptable, professionally written piece – buddy, you'd better believe some sparks are emanating off of this newsprint. But alas, passing off the anthemic cries of Electric Six's hit as my own might be construed as what we in the biz call "plagiarism," and so I am consigned to simply write about the band in question instead. Not that this isn't a thoroughly riveting assignment: having been a fan since my formative high school years, there is coursing through me a healthy bit of envy for anyone who gets to take in this highly charged Intersection show. As a Detroit-born and Jack White-nursed ensemble, Electric Six make it a habit to never enter the performance arena without their rock lasers accurately set to "stun." Yes, the voltage will be high, but the only real danger anyone is facing involves way too much rocking; which, of course, has been scientifically proven to threaten only Mitt Romney.
