Punk legends 88 Fingers Louie played their highly-anticipated 20th anniversary/reunion show this weekend in Chicago, and some videos of the performance are showing up on YouTube. Check out one of the better quality videos below.
This one features three songs, “Pent Up” (from 1995’s Behind Bars), “Past Mistakes” (from 1997’s Up Your Ass), and “Ritter” (the next song on Up Your Ass).
I was crazy enough to drive 4+ hours in the shit weather to get to this show, and it was totally worth it!
The band ripped through pretty much all their classics, and brought in their two former drummers to play a few songs each. The show also marked the first time since 1999 that original bassist Joe Principe (now of Rise Against) played a show with 88 Fingers Louie.
There’s no word yet if the anniversary show will lead to more from these guys, but we’ll be sure to let you know if it does.
