Boston to Berkeley II at Petco Park in San Diego, CA Oct 10, 2021 with Rancid and Dropkick Murphys
This was a super energetic show, the Murphys are just so damn tight, they are pros for sure and Rancid kept it pretty old school, playing a lot of older tunes as well as opening with Maxwell Murder. What a way to start a show!
Rancid exploded onto the stage to a very anxious crowd with heavy energy and got the crowd fired up immediately. About halfway through the set you could see them get that second wind as this show was nearing the end of the tour and they looked tired but that didn’t stop them from putting everything they had into this performance.
I saw much of the Rancid performance but I lost my glasses in the pit. When I found what I thought were my glasses I put them on an it wasn’t my prescription. So I heard the show from that point forward. Hey, I should’ve known better.
A major highlight to the show was when the Murphys saw an eleven year old kid in the crowd with a sign that said it was his birthday. They gave him a signed copy of the new album on vinyl and tossed several more unsigned copies into the crowd. Can’t wait for Boston to Berkeley III, I’ll leave my glasses in the car.
