Thu 18 Mar – Bad Religion

So this was my 3rd Bad Religion show. It was typically excellent and sweaty, as Bad Religion shows tend to be.

Openers were Evacuate and D.I.
The former band were okay, nothing special. I almost caught the drummer's drumstick!
D.I. were great! The singer appeared to be drunk, engaging in much entertaining stage patter and even pointed out his "homosexual nephew" in the audience. They even played covers of Amoeba and Richard Hung Himself, from drummer Casey Royer's old band the Adolescents.

Of the three times I've seen Bad Religion, this show by far had the best setlist. Not favoring any one era over the other, it instead featured a nice even mix of old and new stuff, touching on almost all their albums (Still no tracks from The New America, No Substance, or (heh) Into the Unknown though). Some unexpected and absolutely fantastic song choices (The Handshake! Them and Us! Pessimistic Lines! Man With a Mission!), a couple new songs (electric version of Won't Somebody and Black Sabbathy-intro-leading-into-typical Bad Religion song Resist-Stance) and the obvious crowd favorites (Infected, Sorrow, Los Angeles Is Burning, American Jesus)

Some guy kept shouting at them to play No Substance. Now that would have been hilarious.

    I'd really like to see they playing some No Substance or New America songs live one day...
