    Right on, sir. Whereabouts are you located? We're trying to get Psyched To Die to play our basement in December/January.

    Recently, I saw The Get Up Kids reunited (on Halloween), which was amazing. Haven't caught much else live these days because I've been busy and been hating most music. I'm really burnt out on shows and whatnot, though if Small Brown Bike manage to come to NY I'd be all over that.

    I'm just sick of dealing with shit venues in NY (I fucking hate going to Brooklyn) and kids at shows.

    Saw Mariachi El Bronx last night,the band were really fucking good. The crowd sucked. I'm beginning to notice a trend in the shows I've been to lately, the bands have been great, the crowds have all sucked.
    Maybe it's just me.

    @ AlexGBYMR -

    I saw them with Lifetime a few years ago, their singer had a broken leg and still destroyed shit. Awesome band.

    alex...i know this is gonna sound dickish, and im not trying to. i swear. internet inflection and all.

    BUT when the crowds at most shows you go to suck, thats most likely a sign that hipster creep has started. i know the bronx pull a big "pbr hat/bad tattoo" crowd in phoenix and california

    @joe.distort

    I am 100% totally in agreement with you there. too many gigs i´ve been to here in Reykjavik have been spoiled by the "i´m WAAAY to hip to dance/mosh/move" hipster crowd. and then THEY give you the evil eye if you decide to noise things up a bit.

    And when they do decide to mosh with their tight jeans/asymmetrical haircuts, it´s fucking hilarious. Then i get involved... ;-)

    oh, i know this manuever quite well! people KNOW shit is gonna get rowdy when certain people show up in town...

    @joe & bob.

    It was the hipsters.
    I've never seen so much fitted plaid standing still in one place in my life.

    i used to pit/mosh a lot but suffered a pretty horrible injury at a mastodon gig, so now i only do it when i get really carried away or drunk....

    that being said, i fucking hate it when people dick around not doing properly, i don't mind being bashed into by a proper pit or HC dancer but christ, stop just bopping around high fiving and head banging with their arms around each other and fucking MOSH!

    alastair: i know! doesnt it make you feel fuckin snobbish, i sure as hell do...but i have the same complaints. i also hate the run-into-each-other types, we call that "the ozzfest mosh". ugh. or theres my least favorite move: the beer mosh. one hand in the air with a plastic cup, sloshing it all over the goddamn place.

    @dorkmuffin

    If you see a bearded, hobo-looking guy with a bunch of cameras and a blue hoodie, come on over and say Hi.

    In other news I went to see Narrows two days ago. Show had a fun crowd.

    @Munin, will do. Not really planning on getting there for the openers. Satanized is awful and while the first band is cute sounding, it's basically straight Bungle/Dillinger aping. Not worth sitting through Satanized. See you at the FUC!

    Brother Ali at the first of his two sold-out shows at Minneapolis' First Ave, show #51 in 60 days, and had the energy as if it were day one.
