Buzzcocks show at the White Rabbit

In a hot and sweaty room full of punk rockers, The Buzzcocks take to the stage with “Boredom” highlighting their dissatisfaction with the status quo, and the crowd boils into a frenzied sing along that could be mistook for a riot. Only this time you're not watching in Manchester July 1976 opening up for the Sex Pistols, you're watching them 34 years later in San Antonio, Texas at the White Rabbit, June 2010, which was the bands' last US stop. And let me tell you, just because they look like they could be anybody's grandfather passing time in a nursing home, but they still got it! Pete Shelley and Steve Diggle haven't lost their punk rock sensibilities, nor have they slowed down long enough to let their age stop them from bring their attitude and their entire first two albums “Another Music in Another Kitchen” and “Love Bites” to a whole new generation of fans. They left everyone rumbling as they fiercely belted out tunes like “You Tear Me Up” and “Sixteen Again”. The crowd burst into a big ball of fire as they closed their set out with “Orgasm Addict”, and left the crowd chanting “Otra, Otra, Otra”. San Antonio's appetite for punk rock pioneers the Buzzcocks is insatiable, and it showed as the sweaty crowd embarked with the spirit of punk rock flowing through their veins.
