Virginia thrashers Municipal Waste were a last minute addition to the Psycho California held at the Observatory in Santa Ana when Friday headliners Cult of Luna canceled due to visa issues. Singing odes to partying, drinking, and food fights the thrash-meisters from Virginia seemed like the oddball on the bill but provided an unexpected “speedball” effect in contrast to most of the acts. Their fast tempo’d crossover thrash reminiscent of early D.R.I. felt invigorating and ignited the first mosh pit of the weekend. “And this is how we turn your boring party into art.”
