It was a night filled with wall-to-wall hardcore, as Sick of It All brought pure adrenaline with a 22-song headlining set heavy on tunes from their 2018 album, Waking the Sleeping Dragon!, and their 1989 debut, Blood, Sweat, and No Tears, showcasing a 30-year career in one high-energy night.
Buffalo, New York’s Snapcase, who’ve been around since 1991, delivered an 11-song set, including three songs each from 1997’s Progression Through Unlearning and 2002’s End Transmission.
Boston’s Slapshot and the Chicago-based Dominican act La Armada got the crowd going with early sets.
