After announcing the closure of the Triple Rock Social Club in October, the time for the final show finally came on Tuesday night. 

A bagpipe processional marched from the "old bar" to the stage, one of the few reflective moments of the night. Tears were shed, but most of the crowd's energy was focused on getting in the pit one more time at the legendary venue. 

Dillinger Four headlined the night, with support from hardcore legends Negative Approach. Minneapolis favorites Kitten Forever rounded out the night along with Victory and The Slow Death.
