When the Interrupters got on stage on July 26, 2013 at the Hollywood Palladium, they were all wearing white dress shirts, thin black ties and black slacks. At first I was skeptical. This was the first time I had heard of them, but I decided to keep an opened mind anyway. The band had a cool ska-punk.
When the Interrupters got on stage on July 26, 2013 at the Hollywood Palladium, they were all wearing white dress shirts, thin black ties and black slacks. At first I was skeptical. This was the first time I had heard of them, but I decided to keep an opened mind anyway. The band had a cool ska-punk sound and pretty good anti-police, anti-TSA, anti-NSA and pro-liberty and pro-freedom lyrics. That being said, The Interrupters have a lot of growing as a band to do. They played their music well and really gave it their all, but their stage presence was bit awkward. For example, it seemed extremely pre-planned when the guitarist and the bassist ran around the stage when they didn't have to sing back-up vocals. It was kind of like when the members of Sum 41 jump around in blatantly choreographed circles on stage. It was obvious and distracting. It also seemed like they were using their matching outfits to hide behind instead of focusing more on the music. Those kinds of gimmicks are pretty transparent. It was cool however, that Tim Armstrong came up on stage in the middle of their set to play a song with them.
