Last night Torrence, California punk band Joyce Manor headlined a killer lineup at the First Unitarian Church. Each band on the bill gave a spectacular performances. Local favorites Radiator Hospital started off the night, and their catchy indie pop sound was well-received by the audience. Next to bat was punk rock two piece Holy Death whose awesome performance got everyone’s attention. A few technical difficulties did not stop second opener Glocca Morra from putting on a great performance; their loud punk rock sound launched the first crowd surfers of the night. Headliners Joyce Manor really stole the show with each fan screaming along to every word of their songs. Check out photos of the intense show in the gallery below.
