The Bishop's Daredevil Stunt Club Hits Metro Tonight

I'm hoping it isn't too late to post a reminder about The Bishop's Daredevil Stunt Club being part of a multi-act gig at Metro tonight. It's a big step for a local band that has continued to build a reputation for adventurous power pop over the past few years. Mike Zabrin's Funktastic is the headline act, with Ethan Butler, Brother Starface, and Trick Shooter Social Club also on the bill. The Bishop's Daredevil Stunt Club goes on at 8:30 PM. Admission is $15.

I first encountered The Bishop's Daredevil Stunt Club via its clever holiday single “Bad Sweater Christmas Party” back in December 2014. As much as I liked it, I was more impressed by the way the nonseasonal B-Side “Never Be Big Stars” evoked Cheap Trick with a satiric power pop approach. The Bishop's Daredevil Stunt Club released the full-length Rock And Roll Motorcycle Dinosaur in mid-2015, and it was an adventurous album that took off in numerous directions while maintaining an emphasis on irresistible melodies and elaborate vocals. The Cheap Trick influence was still very much in evidence, and it's likely it will be in full force at Metro tonight.
