Rob and Ryan Pope

Making up the kind of rhythm section frontmen dream about, Pope brothers Rob (bass) and Ryan (drums) powered the Get Up Kids to indie-rock fame from 1994 to 2005. Sometimes separately, sometimes together, the Popes have brought the beats and low lines to local giants White Whale, Koufax, the New Amsterdams and Cavaliers. But it's the brothers' most recent respective appointments that have us standing up and applauding. Ryan just took over the drums for local godfathers the Roman Numerals, and Rob plucks the fat strings for acclaimed Austin, Texas, band Spoon. Consummate musicians and loyal and hardworking in every band they play for, the Popes are the Hank and Tommie Aaron of Kansas-bred rock.
