"Born into the world wearing neon sunglasses and a pair of hi-tops, Jake Sullivan was raised on casio keyboards and cartoons." So begins an autobiographical segment on electronic, guitar and synth-shredding, face-melting local one-man band BadNRad. BadNRad has been thumping a keytar-sized dent in the Minneapolis music scene over the past year, culminating in a showcase at First Avenue's Best New Bands of 2010. Before that, he played at First Avenue's famed Bassgasms and held his own "Werebabe" monster-bash release party at the 7th Street Entry; not to mention he opened for Girl Talk at his New Year's Eve show in Milwaukee. As he proclaims, BadNRad is "truly breaking new ground."

BadNRad stopped by the Local Show for a live performance. Songs performed: "Bad Girl," "Heaven," and "Werebabe."
