Friday Night: Stryper at House of Blues

The Crowd: Middle-aged men and their wives, along with a few families.

How the Crowd Was Dressed: Some had on Stryper shirts, while others wore shirts with such slogans as "The Lord's Gym" (which is a sordid spoof on the "Gold's Gym" T-shirts). Others had on some rather good-looking Stryper shirts.

Something Michael Said: "We are working on a new album called To Hell with Beelzebub. If they are starting a new trend of renaming classic Christian albums, then Amy Grant needs to record an album called "Lead Me Onward."

Personal Bias: As a Christian myself, I don't normally listen to much of the new Christian music, with a few exceptions. Stryper is the exception to that rule.
