Riverboat Gamblers handled the relatively large stage with remarkable power. Other than a short audio problem that required repeating the intro of their first number, their set was flawlessly tight and high energy. They combined some of the energy of punk with a wide variety of other influences that made for a crowd pleasing mix. After about half an hour of non-stop energy and crowd interaction, the band bid their farewells.
Social Distortion made their way onstage to greet a sold out crowd who were eagerly stuffed as close as they could manage to the stage. They began the night with a short hello to the audience and burst straight into some of their golden era songs like "Bad Luck", "So Far Away", and their hit "Story Of My Life". The latter had the majority some 1500 crowd members moving, whether through the pit, crowd surfing, or old fashioned jumping and pogoing, depending on location within the venue. The band proceeded to run through their set with focus on their 90's "golden era" songs like "Sick Boy", and "Cold Feelings", while also making room for plenty of new numbers like "Machine Gun Blues". The the band has neared their 35th anniversary, they seldom took breaks between songs, but would occasionally take notable pauses to interact with the audience.
After a short break the band came back to rip through songs like "Far Behind", and a slightly reworked rendition of "Reach For The Sky" featuring acoustic guitar and stand-up bass, before finally ending on the crowd favorite sing along; Johnny Cash's "Ring Of Fire".
