Shortly after we received word that they’d hit capacity. Kai Hing hobbled in with a busted knee. Teenagers and grown men jumped fences. It was anarchy.
Middle Kids played to a full house. We stood on our toes towards the back trying to catch a glimpse between a wall of sandy hair and girls in snapback caps. The crowd seemed more animated and enthusiastic compared with the previous shows. Cub Sport wrapped the evening in spectacular fashion.
