Photos: Dropkick Murphys and Rancid at Express Live!
The ‘Boston to Berkeley II’ tour rolled into town on Monday night as veteran rockers Rancid and Dropkick Murphys served up a hearty batch of crank-it-to-11 air-punching punk anthems on a rather toasty evening outdoors at Express Live!
Los Angeles shouty band The Bronx opened the show to the small but lively crowd that arrived early before the Dropkick Murphys double vocal assault of Ken Casey and Al Barr kicked up the party vibe with their Celtic punk rock.
Rancid closed out the evening with a set that relied heavily on the band’s earlier tracks, and much like Green Day last week, no one is going to complain when they hear the songs they came to sing along to.
