Rancid @ House Of Blues

Rancid’s a band that’s been close to my heart for the better part of fifteen years, every since I was a young teen sporting chain wallets and getting my band tees at Hot Topic on a regular basis. Well, if you could believe it, it’s been a very long time since I’ve stopped into a Hot Topic, and even longer since Rancid was at the forefront of my playlist, so when the California punkers made their way to Houston’s House of Blues it was a pretty major blast from the past.

The Polyphonic Spree & The O

The Polyphonic Spree came to Houston last week, and boy were they great. On the final night of the tour, the 16 piece band gave it their all to a sweaty crowd in the upstairs venue at Fitzgerald”s. Openers, The O”s, started the night off right with their brand of bluegrass and folk. They reminded me most of the Avett Brothers, only with a touch more Dallas involved in their sound. I wrote all about the show for Houston Press” Rocks Off blog, so I”m gonna save my words here, but I have an overflow of photos from the night that I figured someone might like to see.

Check out all of my shots from the show after the jump.
