American Heist played a fierce "reunion" set, despite fan rumors, I've actually never heard that they officially broke up anyway. They slammed through a barrage of their trademark Folk/Irish tinged Punk, while playing tighter, faster, and harder than I've ever seen. They broke the last of the opening band crowd distance, and even got the first disorganized pit of the night.
Youth Brigade tore through a set encompassing songs from their wide catalog. Starting with the more recent fan favorite "Where Are All The Old Man Bars?", they then jumped straight into one of their oldest classics "Violence", which had a sizable and intense pit for much of its duration. The mosh pit was easily, and slightly surprisingly, the biggest attraction of the night. The crowd spent most of the night swirling around, while screaming along, and frequently spilling onto the stage. They ripped through raw yet refined versions of stand-outs like: "Spies For Life", "Modest Proposal", "Sick", "Blown Away", and really every song they played that night. As they neared the end of their set, they played an array of their best known hits like "Men In Blue", "Did You Want To Die?", "Fight To Unite", "I Hate My Life", and the Punk Rock sing along anthem, "Sink With California". The latter of which finally lessened the frequent pit, opting for the entire crowd shouting along at the very front of the stage.
Despite the impressive set which showed off the band's top notch performing, the crowd refused to let them exit the stage without playing that ever present "one more song!". So, being left with little choice Youth Brigade collectively launched into an unplanned encore set featuring a fiery performance of "What Are You Fighting For?", and "Someone's Gonna Get Their Head Kicked In".
See the Sound & Fury...(*Just now realizes they never played said song...* *shrugs shoulders, and is more excited for next time*) in the Pictures!
