Last saturday (01/05/08) Jakob, Anthony, Alex and I drove up to Cleveland (The Tower) to see Let Down, Braindead, Right Idea, Mad Minds and two bands Lukas was booking at the trap house but had jumped on the Tower show, Shut It Down and Fare Thee Well (these two bands opened). I didn't pay much attention to Shut it down until they covered Brand New, and then after that they didn't jump out at me as anything that spectacular. I missed Fare Thee Well as Jakob and I went down the road a bit to get something to drink. Braindead played next they were pretty good and afterwards when I went to buy a 7" they had left (Kinda sucked, reminded me of Desperate Measures ala 2004 at Play Fast Or Die). After that Right Idea Played, they blew me away. I really think this band is gonna get huge. After that Mad Minds played they were really good also, Judge cover people going crazy. Lastly Letdown played, they were pretty good I didn't watch the whole set because I was in the other room holding the door as fireworks were thrown into the room where the bands were playing. Fireworks were going off pretty much the whole show. But not until later were mortars and other bigger fireworks going off. In some ways I think people went a little too far but no one got hurt (more than little boo boos) so all and all it was fun. I might have missed a few bands that played, it was kinda like band after band in the middle.
I took a few pictures at the show most did not come out because all the smoke. One came out amazing though (that is Alex in the front there).
Afterwards we all met up at a Denny's in Medina. Of the people with us sixteen of eighteen were straight edge. I found this to be rather funny. We had a lot of fun, I ate yummy food and before we left this picture was taken of us all together (the guy in the light blue and the lady jumped in because they played a big part in our food fun that night).
