1417 R Street, www.stryper.com.

There was a magical time in musical history when men dressed in glam costumes and killed it with the ladies more than any folk, hip-hop or classical artist could. Stryper was and still is a rare hybrid of Christian rock and heavy metal, donning themed yellow-and-black stage garb, operatic vocals and more guitar solos than you’d ever need. Expect to hear the entire To Hell With The Devil record as well as some sweet, honey-drenched glam ditties. It’s gonna get mighty hot in the Lord’s house. Hallelujah. Expect a near sell-out crowd.
