OMFG!! The Hives returned to DC and owned the audience. The venue was twice the size of the place they played previously and it was, once again, a sold out show.
I was fortunate to get a spot in the front row to get the full Hives experience. They did not disappoint. Pelle strutted his stuff across the stage, up on the speakers and into the audience. He actually made the security guys earn their pay tonight! :lol:
Their setlist included songs from their new album, Tyrannasaurus Hives (out 7/20), and songs from Veni Vidi Vicious and Barely Legal.
The opening bands were Reigning Sound and Sahara Hotnights. I didn't care too much for Reigning Sound...they were a mix of garage and rockabilly, but it didn't work for them, I believe. Sahara Hotnights were great! This was only my second time seeing them live and they have definitely gotten better. I'm looking forward to picking up their recent release.
