Pennywise pull into San Francisco and proceed to bring down the house.

Out on the road for the About Time tour, Southern California’s Pennywise hit the stage at the historic Fillmore recently and delivered a blistering set of thinking man’s punk rock that had the near capacity crowd raising their fists singing along with every word.

Opening a 22-song set with “Peaceful Day,” Pennywise didn’t waste any time with filler, and just got down to business at hand. Highlights included “Every Single Day,” “Same Old Story,” “Perfect People,” and “I Won’t Have It.” As a bonus, the band ripped through a handful of covers, including “Minor Threat,” (Minor Threat) “Let’s Lynch The Landlord,” (Dead Kennedys) and “London Dungeon” (Misfits). Of course, no Pennywise set would be complete without “Fuck Authority,” “Society,” and “Bro Hymn,” which the band delivered and left no fan disappointed.

Direct support on the About Time tour comes from Unwritten Law, Strung Out, Unwritten Law, and Runaway Kids.

National Rock Review photographer Raymond Ahner was on hand to report.
