Main Mans – New Castle, DE

March 18th 2011

My first time at Main Mans, it’s a pretty rad place!

Tit Patrol – After Hold Tight! I didn’t think Tit Patrol would be able to top that set, they play well but Hold Tight! Killed it. However, holy shit did Tit Patrol ever bring it. This was the best set I’ve seen all year, and it’s going to be hard to top that. It was fucking fun as shit, everybody seemed to be having the time of their life. This is what having punk shows in basements should be. Seeing this makes me want to buy a house just so I can have Tit Patrol play in the basement every week.

Hold Tight! – I was pretty fucking excited for Hold Tight! Because I’d never seen them before, they lived up to my hype. A superfun set, I’d definitely go out of my way to catch this band play again, highly recommended.

This is Your Life – This is Your Life started off a little slow but after a couple songs they found their niche and put on a damn fine show. They also covered ‘San Dimas High School Football Rules’ by the Ataris, which was a welcome surprise, it was an awesome cover too.

Ba-Durr! – Ba-Durr! Was really great, I thought they were going to give everyone one a good run because they set the bar pretty high in terms of top quality sets.  Hopefully I get to see these guys many more times.

The Adelies – Personally I hate ska, so I was more than a little worried when a saxophone came out, luckily these guys turned out to be pretty good. It was a damn fun set.
