Turbonegro @ Irving Plaza, 5/18
Kvelertak

Turbonegro played Irving Plaza Saturday night (5/18), their only East Coast gig before a short West Coast tour (with Torche opening,) that ends with them headlining Punk Rock Bowling with Bad Religion on May 26. The ever-present Turbojugend jackets illustrated how far people had come -- up and down the East Coast -- to make this show, repping from Boston down to Atlanta.

Turbo opened with "Just Flesh," playing a solid set of classics and songs off the new record, Sensual Harassment. People were streaming over the barricade all night, not letting up until the end of the last song, a furious cover of "Final Solution," by Cleveland punk greats Rocket from the Tombs.

Turbo's Volcom labelmates, NYC's Dirty Fences, opened the show, playing a lot of songs off their new album Too High to Kross. They also closed with a cover that has become a staple of their set, "Can't Tame Me" by the Benders.
