Jersey-bred pop punkers the Front Bottoms have been in the game since 2007, which seems like an eternity in indie-rock terms. The band’s wildly eclectic mix of emo-longing and heart-on-sleeve poetry has won them an incredibly devoted fan base, and for their closing set at the Lollapalooza Toyota Music Den, fans lost their collective minds. The overwhelmingly female demographic sported lyric tattoos, handmade signs and literally shouted entire songs, with the fans basically doing frontman Brian Sella’s vocal duties for him. With a career-spanning set, hitting on everything from 2013’s Talon of the Hawk back to a deep cut, “Father,” from 2011’s self-titled LP, fans were also, literally, left in tears. Check out the band perform fan favorite “Au Revoir (Adios),” the opening track from the seminal Talon of the Hawk, below.
