*Hats off to opening quartet Teenage Bottlerocket. The Wyoming-based Ramones-core punks served as the perfect primer and surely won over a few new fans. *Shows like this usually attract a fair amount of belligerent meatheads, but the crowd was definitely on its best behavior, all things considered.

*The show actually took a serious tone when Fat Mike gave a shout out to his late mother's best friend on the side of the stage and went on to play "My Orphan Year." As El Hefe quickly noted upon finishing the song, "She's crying!"

*While Fat Mike had a bottle of Patron Tequila within arms reach on his amp, fortunately he didn't try pulling a repeat performance of his SXSW antics and offer up shots to the unassuming crowd.
