Vocalist/upright bassist Vic Victor was celebrating his birthday and guitarist Ian Jarrell was playing his last show with the band before leaving to spend more time with his family in New Mexico.

The pair, along with drummer Eric Walls, brought out a hard-hitting set that included some of their biggest hits and a few tracks from their latest album Born of the Motor.

The Gutter Ghouls kicked things off with a bang as they brought their own brand of psychobilly to the stage before Break Anchor kept things rolling with their punk madness.

Koffin Kats have long been a fixture on the national touring scene as they made a name for themselves behind their exciting live shows.

Friday's show found their reputation remain intact as the psychobilly band from Garden City had the crowd engaged and moving throughout.

Those closest to the stage found themselves in the middle of one of the bigger mosh pits seen in awhile.

Crowd favorites like "Chaos", "Choke" and "Needles and Blades" sat alongside newer tracks like "Giving Blood" and "All of Me Is Gone".

The band also brought out their cover of Hall & Oates' "Maneater".

At the end of their set, Koffin Kats brought out new guitarist John Kay to help them perform "How It Ends" as he shared a mic with Jarrell showcasing the passing of the torch.
