The Hoods draw a crowd whenever they play and Saturday night was no exception. They came out rocking and looking totally pumped up for the show as they delivered another great high-energy performance on the main stage at The Vixen.

Mission of Burma was a very different band when they hit the scene in Boston all those years ago.
