There is no doubt that Spy is one of the best live hardcore bands playing today! Every time I have seen them play their unhinged energy totally levitates the stage, and they turn the crowd into a stage diving and circle pitting ball of mayhem. This photo was shot at their recent gig for the Manic Relapse Fest in Oakland. Honestly, one of my favorite things about Spy is that they play super short sets. That is the way hardcore punk bands should be. Get in, pummel the crowd for a short set of songs, and then leave them wanting more.
