Rancid, The Transplants + Crown of Thornz Receive East Coast Love at Stellar New York Performance

New York City loves their punk rock and there’s no better way to kick off the weekend than with Rancid, who rocked a sold out crowd at Terminal 5 on Friday (June 21) with support from the Transplants and Crown of Thornz.

The veteran punks got the blood pumping as crowd surfers came alive and pits consumed the floor level when they began their performance with ‘Roots Radical.’ The stage presence of vocalist and guitarist Tim Armstrong along with the rest of Rancid kept an old-school vibe while managing to reach people of all ages.

Energy didn’t waver throughout their nearly 30-song set as fans sang their hearts out to nostalgic punk anthems ‘Radio,’ ‘Maxwell Murder,’ ‘Fall Back Down’ and ‘Time Bomb’ just to name a few. They even performed a new track callled ‘F— You’ off of their forthcoming record purportedly titled ‘Honor Is All We Know.’

With Joey Ramone Place standing strong on East Second Street, it was appropriate that Rancid’s set ended with ‘Ruby Soho’ and everyone’s voice resonated as they shouted “Destination unknown / Ruby ruby ruby ruby Soho!”

As for the support bands, when the Transplants perform it’s a party and that was evident as they had the crowd dancing and moshing while performing new tracks ‘See It to Believe It,’ ‘Silence,’ ‘Completely Detach’ and their title track from their brand new record ‘In a Warzone.’ Fans also raised their ‘Tall Cans’ and sang out loud to the band’s older and infectious tunes as well as their set ending ‘Diamonds and Guns.’

New York City natives of Crown of Thornz got the pit going early on with their East Coast hardcore style not to mention the charismatic grit of Queens-based frontman Lord Ezec. The band was a sight to see as they brought massive amounts of vigor to kick off the night.
