Islander Rocked Grand Rapids on Saturday Night with Pop Evil

Saturday night, Grand Rapids' own, Pop Evil returned home for a big show at The Intersection, with Islander, Letters from the Fire, Red Sun Rising, and Grand Rapids' own, Hurry Home!  All the bands kicked ass, getting the crowd rowdier and crazier as the night went on.
