The HEAR MEDIA GROUP had the chance to cover Day Two of Pop Evil’s hometown Christmas shows. The band, who are from Michigan, played for SOLD OUT crowds that packed The Machine Shop in Flint, Michigan. Both nights were host to an all Michigan line up which included, Kaleido, Sour Jane, Citizen Zero, and Midwest Border Patrol.

Day two started banging with Sour Jane amping up the filled to capacity crowd. Next the stage hosted local band Midwest Border Patrol. They had the crowd jumping with their covers of songs like Buckcherry’s Crazy Bitch and Good Charlotte’s The Anthem. Rochester’s Citizen Zero provided direct support to Pop Evil, playing hits both newer and old.

Pop Evil came out ready to tear the place down. You would think that after playing two nights in a row on the same stage may get to them but, they didn’t even let that faze them. Playing all of their crowd favorites they shut the place down in time for the Holidays. They welcomed back on stage past drummer, Chachi, for a song while current drummer Hayley took a break side-stage. Pop Evil’s newest record ‘UP’ was released in August of 2015 and has done amazing. If you don’t have your copy yet, visit the band’s Official Website to order one; along with some merch.
