It’s been a while since we’ve seen a good thrashing at Love Garden.

Stiff Middle Fingers joined The Bad Ideas for a cassette release show, and invited Arc Flash along for the ride.

Stiff Middle Fingers had a bit of a lineup change for this show, but still managed to bring the ruckus. Sporting an extra long mic cord, the punk band’s frontman displayed his signature antics of leaving the stage as far as possible to sing. He darted in and out of the crowd, which parted like a punk rock conga line. A small crowd eventually started thrashing, throwing their bodies about like big slabs of meat, all while carefully minding the precious vinyl cargo around them.
