David Bazan and Rocky Votolato


Mississippi Studios (map) North
Fri., July 15, 9 p.m. 2011 21+


David Bazan quit God and his band Pedro the Lion a few years back, alienating some followers in the process and winning over even more. What hasn't changed is his knack for writing hooks that take unexpected turns, delivered with a baritone that barely moves. Bazan goes it alone on his latest record Strange Negotiations—at least in name—but there is a backing band and plenty of rock to bring back good memories of Pedro, back when all was still well and godly. These days Bazan is lashing out at politicos and conglomerates, but it's when he goes introspective on us that things get interesting (and occasionally awkward). One thing you can always count on: Even when David Bazan is busy busting someone's balls (including his own), damn it if he doesn't make it sound pretty. MARK LORE
