Concert Recap: FUCKED UP at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis, MN

FUCKED UP live @ the Triple Rock Social Club

FUCKED UP played the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis, MN 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, the 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 my recent memory. Their set was energizing in a way that's hard to put into words; the band's charismatic frontman Pink Eyes is a larger than life personality, no doubt, and he had fans on the tip of their toes throughout their performance with his unpredictable antics, hilarious banter and infectious enthusiasm. Meanwhile, 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.

Hardcore shows this fun are hard to come by these days (and even though FUCKED UP plays a much more adventurous style of hardcore than I'm used to), but their performance proved that the passion for this kind of punk rock is still strong in the city of Minneapolis. Right now, I'd personally rank this as the best show I've seen this year, and I'm sure it will be a hard one to top.

**apologies for the long intro (how about I just refer to the video editing as "punk rock"?), but my iBook is horrible for editing and encoding videos. Oh well; "Black Albino Bones" starts around 1:45**
