Rise Against, The Gaslight Anthem, and Hot Water Music at Mesa Amphitheatre, 9/28/12

Punk fans really couldn't have asked for a better line up last night. As Tim McIlrath stated in our interview, it was a dream team of sorts, with punk vets Hot Water Music kicking things off, The Gaslight Anthem performing their fourth show to date in Arizona, and Rise Against playing their first Phoenix show in three years. Rise Against was part of The Sound Strike, an organization of artists boycotting Arizona because of controversial immigration bill, SB 1070. The Sound Strike released a statement saying it was changing its intent and bands are no longer boycotting, hence why Rise Against finally played a show last night.
