Autopilot Off
(Clutch Cargos, Pontiac, MI - 11/11/02)

Clutch Cargos used to be a Church ... a long time ago ! Since then it has undertaken many names and guises, but none more successful than the incarnation that tonight housed Autopilot Off and their high-octane, melodic punk rock music. The band - Chris Johnson (vocals/guitar), Chris Hughes (guitar), Phil Robinson (drums) and Rob Kucharek (bass) - took the stage at around 8:00pm and didn't stop rocking the crowd until their all-too-quick thirty minute set was well and truly wrung musically dry. Getting straight into the crowd's heads, they sang tracks like "Spring Training" and "Nothing Frequency". The all ages crowd wasn't crazy and out of hand like at other such show's, the actual ages more between 15 and 18, but everyone there knew all the Autopilot Off lyrics and sang along accordingly. For anyone who has never heard of this band (and why ever not ?) they are very reminiscent of Sum 41 and with tonight being the first time that I myself had caught them live, I have to say that I was very impressed by what an awesome performance they gave. I would go see them again and I would also recommend anyone and everyone to go see them also.
