MUNICIPAL WASTE, PHOBIA & OFF WITH THEIR HEADS: videos and photos from Minneapolis

Municipal Waste live at the Triple Rock Social Club in Minneapolis, MN 12/1/09

Metal crowds don't get much rowdier than they do for a MUNICIPAL WASTE headlining gig. I suppose songs like "The Art of Partying", "Thrash? Don't Mind If I Do", and "Drunk as Shit" say it all. Then again, considering they put together a three band gig opened by the crusty grind of PHOBIA and the Epitaph worthy punk of OFF WITH THEIR HEADS for their Minneapolis audience, they clearly ain't tryin' to be an orthodox metal band of any sort anyway. On their recently released Massive Aggressive, they also made no attempt to hide their affinity for the manic punk rock that fuels the insanity behind their thrash, and this performance in MN was a clear indication their diverse fanbase couldn't be happier. Any photographer expecting to grab some quick captures was in for a terrible surprise, as the crowd eagerly fed off crossover instinct: thrash, circle pit, stage dive, repeat. At one point, the entire floor – from the front of the stage to the edge of the back staircase – was absorbed into gigantic cyclone as WASTE vocalist Tony Foresta stared on from the front of the stage and muttered "holy shit, now that's a fucking circle pit"! Massive aggressive, indeed.

Luckily I was able to secure a stable spot above the floor for the first few songs of the bands set and was able to capture some solid video of it for you all. As the show continued, I too felt the need to thrash alongside the rest of my fellow heshers, and eventually made it to the front with my camera strapped to my wrist as I held on for dear life and took a few quick photos and a candid video of the front-of-stage action during "Guilty of Being Tight". Enjoy all the exploits below…
