FUCKED UP [I]LIVE[/I] REVIEW
Friday Night, Saturday Morning
First things last, thanks to everyone who came out to the Pull Out Method party that I "DJ'd" on Friday. I might post a partial set list later this week, but we'll see how that goes.
As for Saturday night, that belonged to Fucked Up, one of my absolute favorite bands right now. It was really strange to see a hardcore band at the Mercury Lounge, and probably even stranger that I felt the need to slam dance during their set. Before the show, I was curious to see how the longer, more complicated songs from Hidden World (the ones with the violins, samples, etc) would translate to the stage, but once the band started ripping thru a series of stripped down, three minute hardcore songs, I just decided I wanted to thrown down, finger point and not give a shit if I messed up my Fred Perry polo. So I did.
Dig: It's great to see a political hardcore band for smart kids (ala Born Against) getting some love these days. Be sure to check their blog and definitely make it a point to see them at SXSW if you are gonna be there.
And while you are at it, why not grab a few tracks from Hidden World?
