Descendents are back! And in a big way! A few years ago the punk legends began playing shows again and have been touring regularly ever since. Rather than resting on their laurels and merely cycling thru the same set list of hits, Descendents have been on a caffeinated full speed ahead path, recording a new album (“Hypercaffium Spazzinate”, released in 2016) and playing shows everywhere they can. On Saturday night, they played to a sold out crowd at Ace of Spades – their first Sacramento show in decades.
The foursome hit the stage at 10pm and blasted off with over ninety minutes of non-stop, rapid fire pop-punk – and didn’t let up until the end of the second encore. On this current run of dates, Descendents are playing a large mix of songs from their back catalog combined with a healthy dose of select tracks from the recent album “Hypercaffium Spazzinate”. Every song was received with huge singalong responses from the packed crowd, and matching craziness from the dance floor and mosh pits.
