Despite the absence of guitarist Marc Kantor, who was busy performing with his other band, Zebrahead, at the 2013 AVN Porn Awards Show in Las Vegas, Nev., Patent Pending sounded tighter than ever and never missed a beat.
After back-to-back sets from mellow pop rockers Crash Boom Bang and Walking Sideways to open the show, Patent Pending was just what the doctor ordered to pump up the crowd.
The band got the party started with the super-catchy "I Already Know (She Don't Give A S*** About Me," before delving into pop punk gems like "Douchebag," and "Anti-Everything."
Lead singer Joe Ragosta kicked the energy level up a notch midway through the set with "Dance Til' We Die," a melodic pop punk tune about zombies invading a dance club.
Patent Pending even reeled out an older fan favorite, "One Less Heart to Break," a song from their 2010 I'm Not Alone EP that was inspired by the suicide of one of the band's close friends.
The song has been an inspiration for thousands of young pop punk fans across the globe, as it has become a true life saver.
Ragosta jumped into the mosh pit several times during the set, much to the delight of the younger fans in attendance. It was Patent Pending's first ever appearance at Huntington's Paramount, and the band will likely be invited back after delivering such a lively show in their venue debut.
The Gin Blossoms performed a lengthy set following Patent Pending's performance.
