Black God, Child Bite, and Alcohol Party at Mag Bar, Monday, November 19th

LEO Weekly ran my staff pick of Monday’s Black God, Child Bite, and Alcohol Party show at the Mag Bar (scroll down to the Monday entry):

Monday, Nov. 19
Child Bite
Magnolia Bar & Grill
1398 S. Second St.
$TBA; 9 p.m.

Detroit’s Child Bite is often compared to Rust Belt punk pioneers Pere Ubu because of their dissonant guitar lines and vocalist Shawn Knight’s high-pitched histrionics. Whereas Ubu’s frontman David Thomas couched his sometimes-sentimental lyrics within a whimsical yelp, the approach of Child Bite’s main man Knight is more assured, wrapped in the band’s more aggressive, straightforward post-hardcore sound. Additional synth and horn textures add some variety to an otherwise standard Midwestern rock approach, and Child Bite seem like the kind of band that are more fun to watch live than listen to in any other setting — though what I’ve heard of their recordings are pretty good, too. With Louisville hardcore alumni Black God and Alcohol Party. —Joel Hunt
