Last night The Interrupters & Bad Cop Bad Cop, wowed audiences as they gave it their all in front of a packed crowd at Toronto’s Hard Luck Bar venue.
Bad Cop / Bad Cop
Bad Cop / Bad Cop is a punk band from California who are signed to (NOFX/Fat Mike’s) the record company Fat Wreck Chords. It is no surprise that the band has recently been voted “Best Punk Band” by OC weekly.
I was pleasantly surprised that the band sounded almost exactly the same live as on the record – I mean this in a good way. No backing tracks here. The band was so tight that the drummer sounded like she was playing to a click track – though I could not see an in-ear monitor. It was astonishing how well the band harmonized vocals live. All the members of the band can stand alone as great singers/musicians.
It was differently worth the trip out just to see Bad Cop / Bad Cop. To say that I was “impressed” by the live performance would be an understatement. I picked up a copy of their debut full length CD “Not Sorry” which is out now on Fat Wreck Chords.
The packed bar went crazy when The Interrupters took the stage. It seemed like a lot of the ska lovin’ fans had been waiting a long time to see The Interrupters live.
They had a great energy and interactive approach to their set. They asked the audience to shout out “requests” during a portion of their performance.
If you have haven’t seen The Interrupters or Bad Cop / Bad Cop yet don’t fret. They still have another month or so of this tour left. See tour dates below:
