There were a considerable amount of "thank you"s and "it's an honor"s peppered in between hyper blasts and vocal grunts at Knitting Factory. The reunited Citizens Arrest played the Brooklyn venue on Friday (12/17), and then one more show at Kung Fu Necktie in Philadelphia the next night. It wasn't their first outing thought - they played a surprise show on Long Island on 12/4/10, but it was their first with Ted Leo back on guitar (Ted was on tour during the Long Island show).
Mind Eraser and Asshole Parade also played Knitting Factory as part of a helluva of a triple bill. All three bands killed, though both cXa and Mind Eraser were jawdropping. More pictures and video from Knitting Factory, as well as video from Kung Fu Necktie is below...
