Have I Become Elitist....

So this evening was the first time I have ever walked out of a "hardcore show".
I have always tried to remain open minded when going to shows. I see lots of people so concerned with what everybody else is doing/wearing/saying blah bloo blah etc etc.
I tend not to do that, I'm there to see bands and I couldn't really give a shit about anyone else.
But tonight, through no fault of the promoter's was like an under 18s school disco.
I saw more under age drinking tonight then I think I have ever seen.
I think this is coming across a bit "old man", i understand that everyone is just trying to have fun.
But I also know that the promoter has put in a lot of effort to organise a show in a county that doesn't really see too many these days. And all I saw was complete disregard to the venue, the organisers and the bands.
Although I wanted to stay to see the bands, I couldn't stomach seeing something that I love in such a state.

Chaos Days unfortunately didnt play but on a plus note Alaska fucking killed it!
Check them out.

Props , and apologies, to the organisers and bands who played though.

Take care



  1. thanks for the shout out to alaska man, glad you liked our set!

    i completely agree with the rest of your post too, it was like a youth club gone wrong in that place.

    I was staying well out the way of the drunk kids punching each other and 'moshing' to the bands whilst ruining it for those who were actually there to see said bands.. and to be honest, i was glad to get out of there at the end of the night.

  2. I put the show on and cheers for coming along but I totally understand where you're coming from. It's a cool venue, there's been some sweet hardcore shows there in the past but it's got a reputation as being THE place to go if you're underage and want to get served, or get pissed whilst listening to live bands.

    Shame you guys weren't feeling it. I just blanked all the shit kids there, but thanked them for putting the money in my pocket that'll fund more shows in the future.

    Got some big stuff coming soon.
