Canadian hardcore punk band Fucked Up played at the Irving Plaza in New York City a pretty crazy and fun show. With plenty of what makes Fucked Up special, and lots more (including the guest appearance of guitarist Josh Zucker’s daughter on stage during a couple of songs).
It is well known that singer and frontman, Damian Abraham, likes to mingle with the crowd and sing close to them. It is also known that he likes to feel comfortable on stage, so he usually strips down to his underwear (to his shorts in the case of the NY show) early in the show and then goes to the barrier to sing with the fans. He even goes into the pit, where he stayed a big part of the NY concert. Singing from within the audience, he hugged and hugged everyone around him, making the audience really feel his love.
