Rise Against at Fillmore, with the Gaslight Anthem and Hot Water Music, 9/24/12


If there was a single moment where Rise Against came alive -- really, sincerely began to lose their minds, feeding off the audience's vast stores of energy -- it happened late in the game. The crowd had been decidedly awestruck after opener the Gaslight Anthem's performance, and who knows, maybe the Rise Against dudes were giving the kids a break, biding their time before letting loose with a barrage of punk anthems. When they finally did go apeshit, somewhere between "Satellite" and "Wait for Me," the audience responded in kind.
