This was at a house but I cannot remember which one. I could never keep any of that straight. When Purpose played a few of us went off, which bummed out emos and I think a member or two of the band. That band blurred the lines between the hardcore and emo parts of NJHC a lot.
Daltonic were a melodic band from Boston, I think, right, and played occasionally in the area. They were okay but not really my thing.
I went outside to hang out with some people when Bane played, which is so weird because six months later they would be this huge band. I saw them play in New Jersey four or five times to basically no one. Then suddenly they were this gigantic band. The same thing happened shortly after this with American Nightmare and Right Brigade too.
