The Sword at The National


Rolled out with Ronan last night to catch The Sword on the opening bill for Clutch. We’re not Clutch fans so we got in, basked in many R I F F S, and then got out by 10pm. I’m almost embarrassed by how excited I was to get out that early while still seeing the band I went for, all on a school night.

The Sword were terrific. I definitely want to catch them when they’re headlining at some point.

Another thing I noticed was a lot of legit metal-looking dudes there for Clutch. Someone was getting punched.
