Performance Apart
The Gun & Doll Show ‘s risqué “Rock & Roll Cirque Du Chevrolet” is uniquely entertaining

“And out of the sky dropped the truth!” exclaims ringleader Killian “Killer” Macgeraghty as he looks

“And out of the sky dropped the truth!” exclaims ringleader Killian “Killer” Macgeraghty as he looks upward, and then ducks for cover as the Gun & Doll Show crashes its guitars and drums in an exclamatory thud-the same way Paul Schaefer’s band does when David Letterman says a punch line and jerks his arm. The impact is dramatic.

Macgeraghty uses this tiny piece of performance art to great effect onstage, and the audio snippet works well in other contexts. It is the first thing you hear when you put on the band’s latest record, “American Radio” , and when you go to the band’s Web site, It’s a demand for your immediate attention. An important and wildly entertaining public service message is imminent. You don’t want to miss this.

Onstage, at a party or over the phone, the Gun & Doll Show’s endlessly energetic and outspoken leader spews forth his “truths” as if hosting his very own morning radio show from some remote outpost on the dial to a cult of loyal listeners who call in to their favorite agent provocateur for what Macgeraghty calls his “upside down view of the world.” Politics, music, sexuality, people, pets-mention a topic, and Killer’s got an opinion and an anecdote. He uses onstage performance pieces to get his point across.
