“Awesome. Pretty packed for a Wednesday night,” said Lagwagon lead man Joey Cape. “Nicely done, Boston.”
With fellow Fat Wreck Chords label mates Swingin’ Utters in tow, Brighton Music Hall was filled with young and old punks alike — the mix of black hooded sweatshirts, from Pennywise to Teenage Bottlerocket, highlighted the range. Perhaps anticipating a Beatles mania effect for the California kings, BMH setup steel barriers in front of their stage, not a bad idea as things go awry sometimes when fans jump on stage. Lagwagon opened with “Obsolete, Absolute” from their new album Hang. As any band hopes for with new material, the new track got the set off to a good start and flowed seamlessly into twenty year old goodies like “Violins” and “May 16.”
Both bands brought out a devoted following of warm-hearted degenerates for a chilly midweek show. Check out the photos below!
