NOFX at the Cabooze, 12/5/12

Categories: Last Night

The setting at the Cabooze was surely limited by sightlines and sound barriers, but the smaller room also created a feel that can't be mimicked in a larger room such as First Avenue, the Myth, or the Metrodome parking lot -- all venues the group has hit up this millennia. Instead, the confines and limited front floor space at Cabooze were a welcome setting for the band. One just had to make his or her way up front, as the sound definitely had its limitations as distance from the stage came into play.

All in all, NOFX played for nearly an hour-and-a-half, dodged making their re-emergence to the stage feel like a campy encore, humored and perhaps offended the crowd and, at 9pm when curfew came down, they left everyone fully aware that the party was still just getting started.

Critic's Bias: This wasn't the same show it would have been with Dillinger Four also on the bill.

The Crowd: Older than expected. This isn't the mid-'90s anymore

Overheard in the crowd: Only 1 bartender?

Random notebook dump: The sound during the openers was rather lackluster.

So how come you didn't state WHY Fatty left the stage......anything "different" about his appearance when he returned?


I was at the Tuesday night show.  It was awesome!

PS - El Hefe plays guitar, and Fat Mike is both vocalist and bass player.  


Great shows! Solid review. The first two openers were boring. TB rocked it though, and NOFX was sweet. Me, my buddy, and his girlfriend were up front right in front of Fat Mike for wednesday's show and we got the "Anal Sex" chant going before the encore. Also, the song is "72 Hookers", not virgins.
