"This venue is like, in a list of amazing fucking venues that we've gotten to play, but by far the fucking coolest." So says Pink Eyes, formidable frontman of Toronto punk veterans Fucked Up, before launching into a performance of "Magic Word" that would be the swan song for Brooklyn DIY venue 285 Kent. Watch a video of the performance above.
As he is prone to do, Pink Eyes spends most of the song in the crowd, moshing and allowing fans to yell into his mic. At one point, you can even see him pick someone up and send them crowd surfing. The rest of Fucked Up chug along dutifully behind him, acting as the much-needed grounding cable to his bursts of electric energy.
