SUICIDAL TENDENCIES @ SUMMIT MUSIC HALL |4/14/13
In a fairly gutsy move, two songs into its set, Suicidal Tendencies performed its classic song, "Institutionalized," a tune of paranoia, societal oppression and mental illness. It was a different from the version on the album. The music was a little more jazzed up, and the lyrics were delivered in only a slightly different cadence to match the songs. With a rhythm section that includes Eric Moore on drums and the impressively skilled Tim Williams on bass, the pace and the dynamics seemed especially free-flowing. By playing its most iconic song early, Suicidal cracked that egg and got on with things.
