The Menzingers return to San Francisco on a headlining tour and give their fans a healthy dose of pop-punk.
Although their their latest release Rented Word (Epitaph Records, 2014) has been on the shelves for over a year and a half now, the Pennsylvania based band The Menzingers are still out on the road in support of it, and judging from their recent show in San Francisco, they have not grown road-weary in the least.
Opening with “Good Things,” off of 2012’s On the Impossible Past, The Menzingers ran through an extensive setlist which touched on all of their releases, including the aforementioned Rented Word. Highlights included “Sunday Morning,” “Good Things,” “Bad Things,” and of course “I Don’t Wanna Be An Asshole Anymore,” which was definitely a crowd pleaser. The band was with out a doubt having a good time up on the stage, and as they closed their set with an encore of “Ava House,” and “The Obituaries,” it was clear that the band have a bright future in front of them.
