Clutch Rocked the Orbit Room in Grand Rapids [Video]

Mostly, I explained, my boyfriend wanted to go. "Yeah, he seems like a Clutch fan", was Ned's response. "Um," I thought, "What does that even mean? Because he has a beard?"

After seeing the show, I realize it's a pretty awesome compliment! Because Clutch fans are some of the most passionate, excited, loyal fans I've seen!
