Fucked Up live @ the Triple Rock Social Club

Fucked Up played the Triple Rock Social Club on Wednesday, April 8, with local hardcore punks in Bring That Shit, post-hardcore band The Nina! The Pinta!, and crossover punks Totally Harsh supporting, and the show was nothing short of spectacular. Throughout their set, Canadian progressive hardcore punks in Fucked Up played with an untouchable fire, fueling the highly supportive crowd through one of most exciting and satisfying hardcore shows in recent memory. Truly, the refreshing nature of the set I saw on Wednesday night is hard to put into words; the band’s charismatic frontman Pink Eyes is a larger than life personality that had fans on the tip of their toes throughout their performance with his unpredictable antics, hilarious banter, and infectious enthusiasm while the three-guitar wall of hardcore noise provided the perfect soundtrack for the flying bodies and spontaneous mosh pits on the floor of the Triple Rock. While I had personally believed that the hardcore scene I once knew was dead and gone (and even though Fucked Up plays a much more adventurous style of hardcore than I’m used to), their performance proved that the passion for this kind of punk rock is still strong in the city of Minneapolis. Right now, I’d rank this as the best show I’ve seen this year, and it will be a hard one to top.

**apologies for the long intro, but my iBook is horrible for editing and encoding videos and I wanted to get this post up before the weekend. Oh well; “Black Albino Bones” starts around 1:45**
