U.K. Subs @ Berlin

U.K. Subs; Riots; Scene of Irony
@ Berlin
New York, NY - April 8, 2017

Charlie Harper brought his modus operandi to NYC and delivered as expected, highlights being of course "Stranglehold", "Tomorrow's Girls" and "Warhead", not to mention "New York State Police".

Riots are a hardcore band out of Oslo and the lead singer has the decency to wear an FC St. Pauli hat, emblem of the most important sport organization in the world, especially in these trying times.

Scene of Irony are veterans out of St. Louis and their lead singer had the audacity to wear a real swingin' suit replete with patches of great bands of yore, including the headlining act this very night. Their hard whippersnaps of sound culminated in a cover of Suicidal Tendencies' "Institutionalized".

Crowd was classic, all sizes, shapes and shades, and legitimate. Punk lives...?
