Very strange gig. We get there to find out 2 other bands had been added to the gig... and that Bryan's car broke down on the way to the show... nice. I didn’t really pay much attention to the opening bands, except to catch that they were from Florida and they played very Metal sounding tunes, which was pretty much the theme of the evening. What we were doing on the bill I don't know. Anyways, once Bryan finally shows up we set up real quickly and start to play... short set but it sounded good. Didn’t seem to go over too well with the Hardcore kids, but what can I say? We don’t play music to swing your arms around to... we play PUNK, which means you're supposed to slam and pogo, doesn’t it? Anyways, City Life was there taking pictures of us and interviewing Jesse and Roxie for some story they're gonna be running on The Loud Pipes soon, so keep an eye out for Miss Roxie on the cover sometime in the near future. After us Stabbed In The Throat played some scary tough guy Hardcore which the kids were eating up. Some Good Charlotte look a like was hanging from the rafters during their entire set. Why I don't know. A quick turnaround brought the Hoods on, and although they were the best band of the evening, it was very METAL sounding and I was just bored to tears falling asleep during their set. Sorry guys. I just wasn't feeling it. Folsom was up next and just proceeded to rip shit up with their Metal sounding Hardcore tunes, and it was sick to see. Kids were dancing... arms were flailing... people were having fun, and that’s all that matters. In case you haven’t figured it out, I don’t like Metal, but the kids nowadays do, and they were digging it, so what do I know? It was a good show for the Metal heads... bad show for the Punk Rockers.
