While Lawrencians were proudly celebrating America’s birthday with plenty o’ pyro, the Replay was bidding a fond farewell to one of the best punk bands to come out of the state.

KTP played their final show with a special fondness for their fans. They gave away every last bit of merch they had for free and got up close and personal with the crowd that’s been loyal to them over the years.

The evening began with an intimidating set from People’s Punk Band, followed by an exceptional set from Gnarly Davidson. For years, the Fourth of July holiday belonged to the Fourth of July band at the Replay. But seeing as how they called it quits last year, the holiday was now up for grabs. So naturally, Gnarly Davidson began their set with a Fourth of July cover in order to pay their respects to their predecessor.

Despite KTP’s separation, they just released some new music last month. You can listen to it here. In the meantime, you can enjoy a set from the fantastic and lively performance below (after the photo gallery).
