‘A Collision’ of rock styles at Metroplex 

Whether you’re a Christian or not overly religious, there’s something for everybody Monday, Oct. 10, at the Clear Channel Metroplex when the headliner for “A Collision Tour” will be the David Crowder Band. The group is big among college-aged followers of the Christian rock movement, packing campus venues across the United States. “A Collision Tour” supports Crowder’s album. The band’s credits include Dove-award nominated “Can You Hear Us?,” “Illuminate,” “The Lime” and “Sunset and Sushi.” According to Crowder, the big crowd-pleaser is “You Are My Joy,” from his band’s latest album. If you’re expecting a PTL-type, come-to-the-front-and-get-saved show, you might want to stay home. Crowder says, “We just like to get a big group of people together to enjoy the music.” His opinion on the many Christian rock bands such as Memphis’ Skillet, which veers more toward the secular, is generous: “I’d rather there be good bands out there than just Christian-only bands.” In addition to alt-rock and pop sets, you’ll find an element of bluegrass in Crowder’s sets, trading guitars for banjos on a few ditties. The band heard country star Marty Stuart a couple of years back, and he inspired them to add a little stomp to their rock. Crowder says Stuart was a “very spiritual individual.” In describing his faith-meets-rock style, Crowder says, “Being a Christian show doesn’t mean that people just sit docilely. We like to create a bit of a ruckus.” Opening will be old Baylor college buddies Shane and Shane and the Ronnie Seay Band. Admission is $15 in advance at the Fellowship Bible Church (call 224-7171 or visit www.fellowshipstudents.com). Tickets are also available at the door for $18. As a side note, Crowder is a pastor and founder of the University Baptist Church in Waco, which he says is a modern-minded young church community.
