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…

Worthless-Full Speed Ahead-Diversity-Dead Nation-To Each His Own-Degenerics @ Asbury Park NJ 10-30-99

So this was a Halloween show, which became a bit of a tradition in NJ around this time, I don’t remember a ton from it, but I think this was the show where FSA covered 7 Seconds. Degenerics played this show too and opened their set with a cover of “South of Heaven.” I don’t remember much else about this one.

Tear It Up-From The Black-A New Enemy @ Old Bridge NJ 9-23-00

I got in a big argument with a professor earlier in the day before going to this show. He said something really sexist about my lab partner and I called him out on it. He got ANGRY and we had it out. My partner was pretty upset, but also kind of mad I made such a big deal out of it. After class I wandered around the mall for a few hours and then drove up to the show. I mostly sulked in the back at this show and pretty much regretted going when I was such a shitty mood.…

97a-Full Speed Ahead-SOV-To Each His Own-Lost Cause-Forthright @ Asbury Park NJ 9-25-98

This was the record release show for 97a’s “It’s In Our Power” record. Rain On The Parade are on some flyers for this show, but they canceled. I don’t remember a lot about the openers and honestly Full Speed Ahead either. One of my big memories from this show is a few of my friends from college coming out and wrecking people during FSA and 97a. I interviewed 97a at this show along with my friend Carson. I had been wanting to sit down with them for a few years and it was cool to finally do so. I had…

Shark Attack-The Gatecrashers-Tear It Up-To Each His Own @ M & M Hall Old Bridge NJ 11-18-00

This was, I am pretty sure, Shark Attack’s first show. This was a new band for members of Rain On The Parade and this kid Zack, who was also in Intention and later Smash and Grab and I believe No Warning? I think I had gotten a tape of the demo, so I was pretty amped up to head out to this show. Shark Attack were great and the crowd went off as you can see in the video. They busted out a cover of “Nothing Done,” which is one of my favorite songs. Awesome. I had to really ask…

Underdog-Floorpunch-To Each His Own-Fahrenheit 451 at The Saint in Asbury Park, NJ December 1998

I remember very little about this show and had to ask a few people to remember much about it. I remember Rat Bones going off hard for Underdog. This was the show I think I first heard about the possibility of Mouthpiece playing some shows, which wouldn’t happen for another few years. Related: Someone in a big band at the time was chatting with a member of Mouthpiece at this show talking about how important Mouthpiece were and that they could really kick start what was starting to be a slowing down hardcore scene in New Jersey. That same person…

Murphy’s Law-Vision-To Each His Own @ Casino Skate Park In Asbury Park NJ Spring 1999

When I ran into this video on Youtube, I could barely remember this show but could very clearlyv see myself stage diving to both Animosity Overkill and Falling Apart, so I must have been there, right? Then I sort of remembered that this show was with Murphy’s Law and I will trust Ian Smith that it was in 1999 (spring?). What is up with the chin beard on me AND floorpunching backwards at one point? Who knows. I remember Murphy’s Law were really good at this show. They stuck to the hits and did not do any bullshit like play…

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…
