At 2am on Friday night, Fucked Up and No Age played an impromptu set on the top of the Lamar Street pedestrian bridge. Word travels fast during South by Southwest, however and more kids showed up for the show than the bridge was likely designed to support (some even claimed that the bridge could be seen swaying under the strain). Regardless, police at the end of the bridge stood idly by and let Toronto hardcore act Fucked Up rile up the crowd with a blistering set of truncated jams.
