TVD Live: …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead with La Femme and Midnight Masses at the Rock & Roll Hotel, 3/27

Rock & Roll Hotel was completely packed for last Thursday’s …And You Will Know Us By the Trail of Dead show. 

They played a nearly two-hour set, including Source Tags & Codes in its entirety. Along with the rest of the crowd, the band dripped sweat as they crowd surfed and joined the pit for brief moments. Towards the end of their set, they allowed for the crowd to join them on stage.

Earlier, wearing masks, Midnight Masses got on stage to start off the night and performed straight through a slew of songs, not stopping for twenty-five minutes. I could barely tell when one song started and when another ended and wonder if the brevity in pauses was due to their starting 10 minutes later than scheduled.

After that, French punk band La Femme were shockingly able to start almost on time due to Midnight Masses’s short set. By the end of La Femme’s set, the crowd was shouting for an encore—one more song, two more songs, even three more songs. One person from the crowd screamed, “I want to have a thousand of your babies! You guys are awesome!”

Overall, it was one of the best punk shows I’ve seen all year.
