When Social Distortion opened the second of a two-night stint at Fillmore with not one, but three songs from Mommy's Little Monster, you'd think a crowd would have gone bat shit to hear material from the band's 1983 debut album. But it wasn't until "Sick Boys" that energy in the Fillmore heightened tremendously. And this was after plowing through searing versions of "The Creeps," "Another State of Mind" and "Mommy's Little Monster."
