Leftover Crack Live in Philly (10/26/14)

Like all good middle class suburban punks, I listened to Leftover Crack for as long as I could remember, and have seen them a handful of times over the years… however I realized that it’s been a good 6 years since I’ve last seen them so when a friend hit me up and asked me if I was going to go their show at Philly’s Voltage Lounge, I wasn’t going to say no.

Released back in 2000, Alkaline Trio’s Self Titled contains a bunch of their earlier late 90s releases including everything off of For Your Lungs Only, I Lied My Face […]
