The Alarm opened the night with a rousing, raucous set of old and new
underscored its punk leanings. Vocalist Mike Peters accented several
his trademark urgent harmonica, and stalked the stage with strident
tunes like "Guns," "The Stand" and "Spirit
of '76." New tunes from Guerilla Antics (such as "Situation
Under Control" in particular) were rip-roaring, as was recent
single "45 RPM." Peters made frequent reference to the late
Mississippi Nights “ a favorite haunt of the Alarm back in the
day“ but his wide perma-grin and jubilant demeanor were infectious.
Buzzcocks can play Warped Tour, so could the Alarm.
