During the middle of the set, a fan stole the set list. She was violently thrown onto the stage. 

"If you didn't already know, please pick people up when they fall down," said Koehler from behind the kit, who quickly noticed the mayhem developing near the steps of the altar. It was, after all, their final show in L.A. (Their final final show will be in Brooklyn on March 2nd, but whatever.)

By the time they got to "Out for the Sun," the light fixtures were down and fans hopped on the stage and used their phones to create a bouncing spotlight that hovered over the girls, who played hard, fast, and obliterated the gushy romance of Valentine's Day.

It was like seeing the Ramones at CBGB, except more violent and instead of leather biker jackets, torn stockings and cherry lipstick broke the hearts of everyone in attendance that night.
