    My band (Third Death) was hoping to be there this year, but we're trying to finish up packaging on the 7" right now. It's the only thing left to do, the wax is in our hands. DAAAANG!

    Who's playing this year?

    If you live in or around Philly and you don't go to this you should be truly ashamed of your lameness.

    well two days ago a bunch of traveller kids held up a store, and a bunch of other kids got arrested for drinking around the venue and similar misconduct. The organizers got a warning from the police. so the fest organizers brought in FSU (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friends_Stand_United) to do security. one of the security got cornered by (other) traveler kids, someone called in the cops, there was a clash between the traveller kids/cops, someone got their face broken with a baton.

    FSU? are you ****ing serious? Altamont anyone?
    when i was into all this hardcore **** FSU did not stand for what is says above. it stood for **** **** up, and they did. they were basically a gang. every time they were at a show they started ****, and i've overheard them numerous times bragging about beating people up for no reason. i don't know what happened in this instance, but calling FSU security is a ****ing joke.

    that line up reads like some tv writers brainstorming list for the "punk" band name on an episode of the o.c. or 90210

    1905 didn't get to play, so as of now, no last show for 1905 unless they can work something out for a DC show. Tony and Greg tried to fit as many of the bands as possible on the late show last night so that people wouldn't feel so slighted, especially if they came from far, far away. They were just trying to make the best of a really sh*tty situation.

    I only hope that some showgoers got to beat the crap out of these idiot hobo-punks before the cops got to 'em. T'would be a shame to let the cops get 'em all.
