Mest, the Ataris and Hawthorne Heights pile Philadelphia in the time machine


There’s a huge glut of nostalgia tours taking over clubs nationwide these days, but few are as laser-focused as the current “three-headed monstour” of Mest, the Ataris and Hawthorne Heights. They might as well have just called it “Bands you were stoked to see on Warped Tour 10 years ago.” So it was no surprise that folks in Philadelphia turned out en masse to see these three groups plus opening act Handguns at the TLA on March 13. Substream photographer Jim Trocchio got into the pit and captured the action.
