Dead To The World played a set for what would be the majority of he night's occupants. They played a Modern Melodic Hardcore style, that got some audience members participating in the anthemic choruses to some songs. They put genuine feeling and excitement into their stage show, and gave off the feeling of longtime veterans of the Punk world.
Spastic Fit put on a fittingly convulsive performance. With little pause the band sped through their songs at an unmatched pace. Half the fun, though, was watching their frontman man convulse, and tumble across the stage shouting into two, or no microphones, and just providing a truly unpredictable stage show. Their sound was widely influenced, from Hardcore Punk, to Thrash, to Gothic Punk. Highlights include break-neck fast covers of The Dwarves' "F*ck You Up & Get High", and Descendents' "I'm Not A Loser".
T.S.O.L. began the night's musical assault after a somewhat misleading instrumental introduction, which was followed by the consecutive ripping classics "World War III", and "Sounds Of Laughter". By the time the band reached four songs in they finally took a moment to greet the completely frenzied audience, and engage in some dialogue with frontman and personality of the band, Jack Grisham, who is almost as fun telling stories, as singing. Part of the fun of the night was the band's lack of a set list, which lead to even more requests and interaction than usual. All sides of the band were shown in the night's performance. From the straight-forward Hardcore Punk classics like: "Superficial Love", "F*ck You Tough Guy", "80 Times", and "Dance With Me", to the band's more Gothic influenced side as reflected in tracks like: "Wash Away", "Terrible People", "I'm Tired Of Life", and a special performance of "Silent Scream", which hasn't seen the light of day in 6 years. The latter naturally came with a few forgivable errors in lyrics, but the result was still magical.
The entire band gave it their all the entire night, with Ron Emory showing as great of guitar playing, and performing as ever, and Jack Grisham, still featuring as much energy, stage swagger, and inexplicably stage banter including topics from mismatched socks, to scantly clad women adorned with used condoms drinking lemonade and viewing baby pictures with his mother. Drummer Anthony Biuso, also had a notable drum solo after the bands performance of "The Triangle". As the end of the night neared, the band kicked the audience into full gear, with obligatory performances of songs like "Abolish Government/Silent Majority", and the most known hit "Code Blue. Afterward they collectively bid the crowd farewell, before greeting them again for pictures, and more personal interaction.
