that is awesome to read right now. I'm at the show now. kev and scott (network, the) are here. I think they god lost in the sea of 15 year olds. I missed the first band. probably cause I drove by this place like 5 times. it's across the street from telly's pizza and there are tons of trunk load things for sale out front.
Always & Forever: they had sooo many friends there who all knew their music, singing along to prove it (and a sizable chunk of them left after a&f was done). Honestly, I don't think I've ever heard of them before yet there were 100 kids there easily. So is the life of concert post social networking websites. I'm willin to bet that 90% of these kids got the show info though myspace dot com. Hell, when I was all these kids age, pre-cave in and cave in themselves would play too practically no one. Maybe if there were myspace back then, their music wouldn't have gone the way it did. Anyhow, this band sounded good. "New-defintion" post-hardcore. The sort with guitars and basses flying all over the place and the members throwing themselves against the crowd. With 3 gguitar players, it doesn't seem to matter if one or two has the guitar behind their head or up in the air. Someone will hit the right note and even still the crowd doesn't care about perfection, only a good show. This band would probably have been amazingly group breaking 7 years ago, but now it's just something fun to see live.
jon benet, the: after a wicked friggen long intermission... excellent energy. Makes me wish I'd listen to their tracks. the singer spent a lot of time on top of the crowd and juming into people's faces. The music had one or two stoner-rock groovey parts to it but nothing annoying. The crowd swelled forward a few times and one time knocked over the stage right speakers. Someone said there was a fight, but I didn't see it. The owner or who ever he was kept saying "if this happens again, I'm shutting it down." Also, kids here really love to clap. They clap for just about anything. During the last part of the last song, the singer parted his way through the crowd, the bass and guitarist followed. Then they came charging back. The guitarist leaped through the drum-set, there is a series of pictures of this happening. As the rest of the band picked up, the singer bitched out some dude he saw hit another dude. Hella uncool to punch other dudes, dude.
heavey heavey low low: they might be from california, but they act like they are from mass. And by that, I mean they come to NH to buy fireworks. this should be called heavey heavey, jazzpart jazzpart. There was a lot of early norma jean/everytime I die influence. One of the guitar players looked like he was 15, but he was all over the place. the singer licked a girl on either side of the stage. He may or may not have gotten $2 for that. not sure.
fear before the march of flames: while they were setting up, on of the guitarists was playing cover songs. they were all alternative songs from the 90's. Really fun set. the new material is way less converge, more singy. why is that the trend now a days? I'm a little letdown by that fact, but whatever. this band has so many boxes, bulbs, and blinding head lights. it makes it cool to shoot. no flash n' stuff. they used to just have a guy that did keys. that guy is gone and now they have a new guy who switches off playing guitar and playing keyboards. at somepoint there was an altercation with a dude in the camo. something about him spitting on the singer.

I personally thought HeavyHeavyLowLow did a lazy set. The singer was exhausted it seemed and from his preformance he certainly proved he was. I was a little bit dissapointed. I thought they would have much more energy.
theres no way in hell that girl is a real person, shes two people in a tent with a puppet head.

the guy who said hed stop was just the sound guy meaning that hed take his gear out of there if it fell over. again. I totally understand. all in all it was a very sucessful show for us. now EVERY ONE COME SEE CALIBAN AND THE ACACIA STRAIN IN OCTOBER. and all the shows inbetween like LOOK WHAT I DID AND THE HUMAN ABSTRACT.
that guy yelled at me for standing beside the his amp, yelled and me and corrado images. it was something like this:
"Don't hit my equipment!" him
"I'm not touching it" me
"I'm not any where near it" me
"Don't hit my equipment!" him
I thought it was weird and corrado looks just as confused. I took a step to the right and the guy went away.
