It was a ’90s rock jubilee when Social Distortion and the Toadies took over the Boulder Theater on Thursday night — with Lindi Ortega opening the show. Sure, there was some ’80s and ’00s music in there, too, but the most familiar jams in those catalogs — from the Toadies’ sing-along “Possum Kingdom” to Social D’s “Story of My Life” and “Ball and Chain” — are from the ’90s.

Every veteran band’s fans deserve a tour like the one Social Distortion gave its followers: One where there isn’t a new album to pimp out, one that isn’t hampered by the new, so-so material that just eats into a set list that should be chock full of classics, one that’s a flesh-and-blood greatest hits set.
