Wowsers... this show had no appeal to me whatsoever. If it wasn’t for Inducir Con Drogas, I wouldn’t of even made the effort! I figured that since they were playing with a bunch of "Straight Edge" kids (some of whom were drinking, smoking, and the stupidest ones had STRAIGHT EDGE stickers on their windshields), I had to be there to see the clashing of lifestyles! I got there just as Inducir Con Drogas was finishing up, but the 4 songs I heard were really good, considering that the P.A. sucked ass in that place. The best part of their set was when the daughter of the Java Joint’s owner went up and asked them for their autographs... it was definitely a Kodak moment! I ran into Hank and Bryan and Brett all hanging around the babe magnet car that Hank drives, and chatted a bit waiting for the next band to start. Pitt and Marco showed up and joined our little group as Halfway played next (I think). I'm all for encouraging the youth of today but man, what's with all these kids being infatuated with Metal? This band sucked... lots of Metal riffs... boring Sidney, boring. Pitt and I wandered off to find some whiskey... Hank brought back the City Life with the Black Jetts in cartoon form on the cover... I like the band and all, but I didn't get it? It was a crap story that went nowhere. What was the point? Seriously? Someone tell me.
After Halfway got through boring everyone, Last Hour In Paris were up next and the sounded so much like Iron Maiden that I thought it was a joke, but it wasn't. The funniest part was that the kids were actually digging it. Sad. The Shotgun Message never showed up, but I’m glad they didn’t. They probably sound like Judas Priest, and I had enough Metal for one day. What a waste of time. The perfect ending to this crappy show was when some straight edge kid took a beer bottle from the parking lot and smashed it up with a sledgehammer he had in the back of his pick up truck. He didn’t smash it like all angry or with any true feeling... no, he just kinda softly and very gently tapped it with the sledgehammer, like a pussy, and the glass just kind of broke and fell to the ground. Guess he didn’t want to hurt the asphalt! LOL Damn straight edge kids... we were all laughing about how STUPID that kid was for the rest of the night.
