Paint it Black and Naked Raygun - Live 9/11/09 - The Ottobar, Baltimore, MD

A night where legendary punk legends return to the road after a 15 year layoff, the atmosphere was all hardcore, all punk, intensity growing as each of the five bands took the stage. Naked Raygun were more lean and settled into a set filled with midtempo to fast numbers from their earlier catalog.

Representatives from the time-honored DC punk and hardcore scene were on-hand (it was cool meeting John Stabb of Government Issue on the floor) in a venue-packed Ottabar to pay witness to one of the greats, who gave a pretty solid performance and kept the air of nostalgia swirling about the club. Old meets new on a memorable evening filled with passion and respect.

Paint it Black nearly stole the show as you'll see by these action-flailed shots, and Naked Raygun's Jeff Pezzazi even stepped out with them for their closing number, a moment which Paint it Black's Dan Yemin noted before leaving the stage as being "the happiest moment of my adult life."
