On Boomstick's debut disc, singer Galactic Celt expressed interest in joining a boy band. But instead of hiring a choreographer and grooming his long locks to become a Fabioesque frontman, Celt said, as Dee Snider once declared, "I wanna rock." He made the right choice. Boomstick is one of Kansas City's most accessible outfits, playing catchy, riff-driven tunes to which both classic rockers and headbangers can relate. This show marks the release of the group's second album and is the last gig for Audio Kombat Arsenal singer Joe Spiller, who will be parting ways with that prog-metal powerhouse.
