Alkaline Trio was on the last leg of their current tour with Off With Their Heads and Bayside when they stopped at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip last Tuesday. This show like a lot of the others had been sold out for weeks. Hopes were high for an awesome show and Alkaline Trio did not disappoint. Their setlist consisted of classics like “Sadie” and “Blue Carolina” but also newer songs like “She Lied to the FBI.” Each song was received with the same energy and sung back with the same emotion. Matt Skiba and Dan Andriano’s voices were perfect and drummer Derek Grant hammered out the fills effortlessly. Alkaline Trio continues to be on top of their game putting on one of the best shows out there. Thank the stars punk never dies.
