On Saturday night, the Misfits horse-kicked all of the creep punks at Grand Central into a new dimension of brutality.

Oceans of blood washed over the flabbergasted audience until the red tides left them soaked in the afterbirth of a new American monster.

Then that horrible creature reared its ugly head and unleashed a devil's yell that will forever echo through the Concrete Hell of downtown Miami. And we here at Crossfade got the pictures.

Then the Attack hit the stage. They've been touring with the Misfits for the past twenty or so shows. They're from Orlando, and they play fast, loud, melodic hardcore punk. They sound like a mix of Gorilla Biscuits and Sick of It All.

And Jerry Only was like an undead rock star.

Only played his custom, hand-cut devil's bass with no guitar pick. The instrument has no tone or volume knobs because it's always set to maximum explosion.

We never seen one band go back to back on so many songs in a row without stopping to say anything. And whenever they did stop to say something, it was something cool. And they played like 300 fuckin' tunes, yo. That shit was serious.
