A couple hundred bodies packed Silverlake's Spaceland on Friday night to the "secret", pre-Sunset Junction show by the classic punk band Buzzcocks. The band may have started off with "Boredom" but beer didn't get spilled and bodies didn't start going crazy until "Autonomy" threw the crowd into a frenzy -- at least in the front -- where I got properly shoved and blessed with beer from plenty of enthused fans.

Los Angeles' own 3-man band The Adored opened the night with their own take of pop punk. Audience members surrounding me can be heard muttering approval and surprise at hearing a support that was so close to the Buzzcock's sound. They closed off their set with two special guests, Pete Shelley and Dyan Valdés (of The Blood Arm), taking on the vocals and keyboards respectively.
