Less Than Jake and Anti-Flag at the Fonda Theatre

The Fonda Theatre was packed with people dancing and shoving on Saturday as Less Than Jake and Anti-Flag took to the stage.

Opener Get Dead showed a sound like a young Rancid or Transplants, as singer Sam King's vocals resembled Tim Armstrong.

Masked Intruder also put on a noteworthy show full of mystery and mosh pits. It's known that the members are from prominent punk bands, but no one knows who they are or what bands they're from. This mystery helped the band bring an energetic set, which inspired fans to dance and sing along.

Anti-Flag brought their punk sounds and attitudes as they sang songs like "Fuck Police Brutality" and "Die For the Government."

The set was full of fan interaction as bassist Chris No. 2 repeatedly went out into the crowd. The band also ended its set bringing drummer Pat Thetic and his set in the middle of the audience, where fans moshed and danced around him during "Power to the Peaceful."

Less Than Jake inspired a frenzy of fans dancing and skanking to songs like "All My Best Friends are Metalheads" and "The Science of Selling Yourself Short."

As the smell of weed filled the air, singer Chris Demakes would often make references to it, joking that the crowd would get into trouble.

Overall, all bands brought fun to the Fonda Theatre, despite their different genres.
