Back to Back at Mr. Small's: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and Girls

"Jesus, I dare you to come back," sang Black Rebel Motorcycle Club's Peter Hayes, as the strobes flickered and the clouds of fog lit up with ominous red light. As I looked around Mr. Small's last week -- packed to the walls with swaying bodies -- I thought about how long BRMC has been coming back to this venue, and in some ways, doing much the same thing. On the surface, little has really changed: A bassist and a guitarist stand almost motionless at the front of the stage, in clouds of fog, and sing and play for hours, while the drummer pounds along in the background.
