With their third full-length, “Fight The Good Fight,” tearing up the radio waves, The Interrupters are hitting the road for their fist headlining tour of the year which kicked off at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop. Hosted by local radio station, Alt 105, the Rickshaw Stop was packed to the gills, many in costumes in celebration of the still-distant Halloween holiday (apparently hipster costumes are all the rage this year).
One look around the room as the crew set up the stage after openers Stickup Kids wrapped highlighted the Interrupters’ broad appeal. From little kids to old dudes, the Interrupters not only resonate but get people off their butts and out to show. And no, we’re not talking about kids that make their parents take them to shows or parents that have dragged their little ones along … nope, these are all fans of the band and their music.
So when the Interrupters finally kicked things off with “A Friend Like Me,” and guitarist Kevin Bivona had mic problems, the crowd was more than happy to help out with backup vocals. And while their latest single “She’s Kerosene” got the expected reaction, the crowd’s knowledge of the Interrupters catalog ran deep and the room could literally not stand still during the hour-plus set. Hot and humid but a damned good time.
