Direct from the UK, British rockers Enter Shikari stopped by San Diego's hallowed home of all things punk, Soma, this past Saturday night for a blistering set of tunes featuring tracks off the band's most recent album, "The Mindsweep" (available now via Hopeless Records/Ambush Reality).
Despite being a relatively short drive from LA, San Diego crowds tend to have a feeling all there own and Saturday's crowd was no exception. Working the audience into a rabid state with their unique blend of punk, metal and electronica, Enter Shikari held nothing back as they delivered a performance that vacillated between frenzied and insane, slowing down only moments between songs to announce they had entered the crazy part of the night, asking the fans to really let lose and even venturing out into the crowd themselves.
