The Menzingers are an unstoppable force. After 6 full-length albums and over a dozen years of non-stop touring, you would think the pop-punk juggernauts would be burnt out and ready for a break. Yet, The Menzingers show no signs of letting up, as proven on their most recent US tour with scene favorites Tigers Jaw and Culture Abuse.
At their most recent stop at Denver, Colorado’s Ogden Theatre, all 3 bands offered up fantastic sets that far out-valued the ticket price. Starting out the evening, the Bay area’s Culture Abuse set the tone, serving up their unique blend of singalong indie rock and bouncy punk rock. This made for an extremely smooth transition into indie-punk favorites Tigers Jaw. Being no stranger to Denver, Tigers Jaw had the crowd in the palms of their hands. After a half-hour of jarring hooks and swaying melodies from the Tigers Jaw team, it was finally time for the headliner to take the stage.
The Menzingers wasted no time, immediately pummeling the crowd with fan favorites new and old. The set was most notably laced with a healthy amount of new material from the band’s 2019 release, Hello Exile. Having been released only weeks before the Denver show, the new material felt especially fresh, as the band appeared lively and full of enthusiasm while performing the new tracks. In all, the show packed a punch hard enough to leave an impression while also keep fans clamoring for more.
