Concert Reviews

NOFX at Fillmore Auditorium, 12/7/12


The funniest (and definitely the wrongest) moment in NOFX's show last night at the Fillmore came when Fat Mike prefaced "Arming the Proletariat With Potato Guns" by saying, "This is kind of a racist song, but it's okay if you're racist toward the people in your band." That was followed by bits about crossing a Mexican with an Octopus, Hitler committing suicide because of the gas bill and Erik Sandlin's grandfather dying in a concentration camp by falling off his guard tower. NOFX isn't a comedy troupe, but it might as well have been with the banter last night.
