Shark Attack-Fast Times-Tear It Up-Down In Flames-Holding On-Plan Of Action @ Brick NJ 3-30-01

I mostly remember this show for some of the covers that happened at it. Down In Flames covered Full Speed Ahead, while Fast Times covered Life’s Blood. I think I took pictures of both bands at this show, but I don’t have them anymore.Maybe Tear It Up too? I might have taken them for someone zine, so I just passed them off. Not sure. Shark Attack played a rousing set that had the room moving. They were so good live and got such a great reaction every time.

Kill Your Idols-The Movie Life-To Each His Own-From The Black-Down In Flames @ Brick NJ 9-1-99

I remember this show being fairly lowly attended for some reason. Down In Flames covered Full Speed Ahead (I think this was the show), which was really cool. Shore bands who want to get over with the locals should do that. Kill Your Idols covered Sheer Terror (but not Here To Stay). I think I went to dinner during a few of the other bands. I remember this was right before a new semester began, or maybe it had begun that previous week, and after one of the worst summers of my life I was ready to go back to…

Mouthpiece-Rain On The Parade-Striking Distance-Time Flies-Down In Flames @ Wayne NJ 12-8-00

This was a long day! In the fall of 2000 I had three classes in the early afternoon up in Toms River: Gender Studies at 1200, Statistics at 1300, and then Biology at 1400. We had lab on Friday so my partner and I hurried through our lab stuff and I drove back down to Manahawkin to pick everyone up for the show. We then drove ALL the way up to Wayne, which is at least a two hour drive. I remember it was freezing cold and occasionally snowing as we drove up to the show. In the rush to…

Parade Brigade #3 The Reviews

Issue three would be the end of Parade Brigade Fanzine and, as promised in issue two, we mostly only reviewed records that were sent to us. Boy were some of these records awful! John and I handle most of the reviews with only the Carry On and Esteem records getting both of us. Issue four would have had a Carry On interview that I think John actually did…? Our friend Ryan, who did a lot of grunt work with me getting this issue thrown together as quickly as it was, jumped in to do a few reviews as well. 200…

Ensign-To Each His Own-Down In Flames-Running Like Thieves-The First Step @ Brick VFW in Brick, NJ 3-11-01

I definitely went to this show, but I don’t remember a lot about it. This may have been the first time I saw both The First Step and Running Like Thieves. I remember Running Like Thieves doing their usual Bold/Supertouch/etc covers. Speaking of covers, I swear Down In Flames busted out a Full Speed Ahead cover at this show. Anyone remember? Ensign were about to do a new record, as the flyer says, and they had a bunch of new songs. I don’t think I had seen them in awhile and I remember not liking their new songs. That is…
