You might not realize but Anti-Flag has been around for over 20 years. That’s longer than half the people in the audience Friday night when they played at the Henry Fonda in Hollywood. Aiden, the Cancer Bats, Broadway Calls and Trash Talk all came along for the ride. The less than capacity crowd lent itself favorably to the circle pit that took up almost half the floor throughout the entirety of the show. The acts themselves were a distinct mix of hardcore, metal and punk and Anti-Flags brand of political punk proves itself just as relevant now as it ever has.
