Cn’Fn’L purged their pent-up Bruins anxiety with a raucous set at The Middle East Downstairs opening for Imperial State Electric.
I’m not going to beat around the bush. I’ve never seen a more accurate description of a Cocked N’ Loaded show than what Richard Bouchard wrote on Boston Band Crush when previewing this show:
Cocked N’ Loaded play some of the best drunken, we-can’t-believe-this-hasn’t-gone-flying-off-the-rails-yet rock anywhere; frontman Kyle Neeson is as depraved on stage as any Florida bath salts addict, and at least twice as cunning, so watch out.
The band lived up to every word.
A few moments into Cocked N’ Loaded’s set, Andrew Doherty of Motherboar unloaded a can of beer in Kyle Neeson’s face. He must have made contact, because Kyle wound up with a bloody mouth. No matter. This is Cocked N’ Loaded, after all.
