Propagandhi & Iron Chic played a wild show on a boat (pics)
Canadian punk vets Propagandhi brought their short tour with Iron Chic to NYC last night (9/13) for a show on a boat (one of the Rocks Off Concert Cruises). With views of the Statue of Liberty and the Freedom Tower, it was definitely an appropriate location for this politically-minded band, and they made note of that before playing “Fuck the Border.” They also played stuff like “Failed Imagineer,” “Dear Coach’s Corner,” “Lotus Gait,” “Note to Self,” “Back to the Motor League,” “I Was A Pre-Teen McCarthyist,” “Duplicate Keys Icaro (An Interim Report),” and “…And We Thought That Nation-States Were a Bad Idea,” and they were totally wild. Bassist Todd Kowalski was especially going nuts the whole time and at one point he punched a ceiling title in half, and the crowd didn’t let the motion of the waves stop them from moshing all night (though it did cause people to keep falling into each other). Long Island’s Iron Chic also brought a nice local crowd along for their opening set, which had a good amount of people singing along. Pictures of the madness (ceiling tile punch included) are in the gallery above.
