While I was on the way to pick Hollie up tonight, a man ran in front of my car. I don’t know if it was a suicide attempt, or if he was just drunk or crazy, but he did succeed in scaring the shit out of me. Then, a little while later, I went to drop my brother off at the house, but he locked himself out. And he chased my car down the street. I don’t understand how we could get there an hour late and still be early. So, while we were waiting in the car, we saw an old lady approaching us from behind. I kind of thought she was a drunk homeless guy because she was staggering while she walked. And, you know, she was old, so she kind of looked like a guy. Which, I mean, I was looking in my rear view mirror and I already need glasses (proven by the MovMou incident). But, she wasn’t. Because she was actually bedazzled and had a wallet. But honestly, she was probably still kind of drunk. “We should jump her.” I mean, logical conclusion, right? Just kidding, we most definitely didn’t jump her. We’re good citizens.
Anyway, we decided to go tonight in order to maybe find some new local bands.
The first band, Fatal Memory, was a good mainstream-radio-appropriate band. Not really my thing, but good nonetheless. They probably shouldn’t have been on this show though, because everyone there was so HXC and just came to throw down, so they insisted on being assholes for no good reason.
I have to admit, I was a little turned off by Liberator because two of their members were part of the aforementioned assholes. Really, guys? I don’t know how you do it in Denver, but down here, we’re all about broha love. The whole walk in, flip them off, shrug, and walk back out thing was pretty uncalled for. Anyway, I’ll put that aside. You guys had all the basics of hardcore down. Your Acacia Strain cover was lacking a little in the brutality department though. My face could handle it.
As The Sky Darkens had moments I really liked and then moments that I wasn’t too keen on. It was mostly the former though. You guys really overused the phrase “Get the fuck up” though. And thanks for informing us when the breakdown was. I really needed that. :) Also, there was this girl in the corner who was REALLY enthusiastic for you. Her dancing was crazy. Somebody should have filmed her and put her on youtube, cause it was pretty amusing.
Maelstorms (HAHAHA, I’m so damn funny), I mean, Maelstroms. To that one vocalist, you were dressed kind of weird. Wifebeaters are only appropriate when you’re A) sleeping, B) working out, C) working on your car, or D) beating your wife. And get this, anyone who wears a bandana is pretty much guaranteed to be an asshole. Hollie called it from the get-go. What 21+ year-old starts beating up a 16 year old kid? I’ve seriously never seen someone get dragged out in that fashion. There was a guy sitting on top of him while two others were dragging him out. You bounced back fairly quickly though. It must take a lot to act cool again after that happens to you. Anyway, overall, you guys were pretty good. I liked the chanting bit at the end of the last song. Good luck on your Sunshine show later this month; I’m sure the crowd there will be better.
