During "Busload of Misfits," the guys showed how a smart use of dynamics can be more challenging and impressive than constantly just rocking out -- which they also did plenty of. Early in the set, Van Louvin did a power pop take on "Who Loves the Sun?" by The Velvet Underground and ended the proceedings with a slightly moodier version of "I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" by the Ramones. Even though this was the group's second show, the band's energy was excellent and it didn't seem like the players were resting on any of their past laurels.
