Pickup Name


Bailiff is—well, first, let me just say: the band didn’t write this bio. I did. I’m Evan Sult, drummer in the bands Bound Stems and Harvey Danger. I know about Bailiff because I heard them through the walls of a practice space I was visiting. They were working on a new song, and I ended up outside the door of their room, listening to them work out a well-crafted 5/4 drum rhythm against this tight, high guitar part that sunk straight into my memory—I was still humming it to myself three days later, no shit. I had to knock on the door and find out who they were. Turned out they hadn’t even played their first show yet. It was one of those moments. Meeting them was kind of like finding that one perfect t-shirt at the Village Discount—you see it on the hanger, on the rack, among a thousand other stained and pointless shirts, and you just know you’ll still be wearing that shirt a decade from now. I’m no fool: I got myself on over to the Beat Kitchen to catch their debut. It was packed on a Wednesday night, well over a hundred folks in the band room. For a first show? Yeah—plus, there were people calling out song titles! Not in that supportive-friend way, either, but in that way that means someone really wanted to hear the songs. Bailiff was LOUD, smooth, and collected, and they had all of six songs to play for the crowd. Keep in mind, this is their first show. I spent a little time watching the crowd, because I have to admit I’ve never seen a first show go so well; Bailiff had the audience’s complete attention, friends and strangers alike.The show was a complete success. So Bailiff the band is just starting out, which is a lucky thing for all of us, because it means we get to watch something real cool right from the launch.
