You’re at the venue yet? I’m on my way!
Who am I missing?
Just walked in. Don’t think I’ve missed anything.
Unless first band had a catalog of 30 second powerviolence tracks that I totally missed haha
LaCroix is $2 here
They’re like the menzingers of seltzer (overrated as hell) but 2 bones is 2 bones
We’re also overrated – and I’m pretty sure most people haven’t rated us at all.
This is painfully evident haha
Gotta be rated to be overrated
Mango flavor btw
Disclosure: had a couple high lifes at old Stanley (they were 3 cuz happy hour til 9)
Probably shoulda taken my vest cuz it’s supposed to be miserably cold when show ends
Feels like -9 Celsius foh
Oh don’t even remind me, I’m painfully underdressed for any weather below freezing.
All the prime real estate in their backyard tonight!! 🥶
I just really, really hate wearing a jacket.
Understood, don’t blame ya
Also, $2 seltzer cans is a W.
BIG UPS TRANS PECOS
There’s that difference between places that see themselves as community centers and as venues.
(either that or $8 white claw/cider and $10 IPA)
$5 tecate is what it is
Meet me at the door, I need $ for ticket
Where you at
Also my earplugs aren’t on my keychain
I still don’t know how I feel about this venue.
Not a fan of the layout, especially the bathroom next to front stage.
I don’t know how the bartender translated Tecate to White Claw but they did.
Layout re: pisser was major pain in the ass when I was last here for gouge away in the before times
I was just about to ask you which band this was, but Endless
Maybe they did me a favor with that White Claw cause that Tecate you got me was rancid. Unsure what was wrong with it. Not expired either, maybe storage issue or just a bad batch, but I’m not trusting those here tonight.
Edit: I trusted them in the end. The rest was… well, it’s Tecate, you can’t call it good. Not horrible? Guess I got unlucky.
Endless was great. Endless reminds me of late night train rides after a fall-out with a friend. Like that’s what I’d listen to.
It’s 2am, you’re sad and angry and drunk, you can’t really afford going out some more, and your friend just walked away from you after a fight and is not responding to your text. You’re on that train, saying to yourself it’ll be better, you’ll be better, but you’re so unsure.
And that’s when bands like that hit the playlist.
I think it’s their first show. Excited about My Fictions and Hundreds of AU. Did I tell you that Husbandry opened for PMFS when they played knitting factory back in 2017. Midnight show so I was fuckin loadddddded. I probably even missed them. 6 hour pregame at duff’s sup?
Yes, this was the infamous show I passed out in front of venue at afterwards
Very descriptive I dig
HAHAHA what is that dude singing behind our backs? “Would you like to eat some mushrooms, something something, birthday”
I can’t get a read on this crowd tonight. It’s all over the place.
Oh that’s the show that made you scared to ever go back there! I remember this story.
Yep that was the show
Pro tip: pregaming endeavors should (not) be 6 hours long
That’s not a pregame. That’s the game.
Okay so for this band (My Fictions), their bass player / singer looks like he’s one step from either grabbing a skateboard and taking Skylar his place in Taking Meds, or buying some rich kid tech bro clothes and talking about how crypto saved his life. No in between.
Got out before crypto cratered
Oh fuck… I’m gonna have to review skramz records with you eventually. Help me.
What happened to that drink you were getting me?
Only took out 60 and unsure if I had enough $
You sure you don’t want the $2 LaCroix 😉
When there’s free tap water? Oh I’ll take the free tap water, haha
No spicy tap water ya gotta drop coin on
Just missed the bing bong part of the gig goddammit
went to a skramz show and (rumors of) bingo broke out
Bingo next door. We do need skramz bingo, I’m sure it’d be well attended.
skramzfansareclosetoretiring #dyinggenre #geriaticmusic
dying genre my ass
Aight husbandry is on now
So far Endless was one of my favorites, My Fiction was super strong. So curious about what I feel here.
Could get into this I think
For My Fiction.
It’s early evening. You just left family dinner, and though you love your parents, they always make you feel like a teenager. You know you’re heading home to a room alone – and you’re still upset about that fight last night with your friend. You vow you’ll stop shit from getting to you, that from here on, you’ve got it together. My Fiction plays through your headset as the bus shows up.
Husbandry is almost speed metal more than skramz. Is that the genre I’m thinking of? I’m very bad at metal subgenres.
Maybe mathy post hardcore is what you’re after?
No I’m thinking bands like Kamelot almost.
Edit: Power metal. That’s the subgenre I was thinking of.
also, husbandry: definitely not skramz. I almost remember as much from 2015 haha. Shit, I might even remember this song.
It’s interesting, I can’t really place it or place my feelings about them. They’re good, that I’ll admit.
Also who showered in aftershave?
Ah musically reminds me of Helmet and Quicksand, albeit shiftier
Wasn’t me. Bathing is a victory for me these days
We love bathing in regrets.
But damn whoever this is, my nose hurts by now. You notice it as well?
Commanding presence I’ll say
Haven’t just yet
Also you know bands are Serious Musicians ™️ when they take swigs of water and not PBR in between songs jahajaj
I’m not even serious humans ™️
I only am (for today) cuz I passed my CompTIA A+ lmaooooo
The larp is otherwise god tier
A few weeks passed. Your friend hasn’t responded to any texts and you’re tired, you’re done apologizing. You’ve been trying to be better – eating healthier, working out more. This event is happening and you know, that once good friend you fell out with will be there. You’re in your bedroom, getting dressed, pumping yourself up. You can do this, you’re okay without that friend, even though you miss them and regret the fight.
Husbandry plays on the speakers.
I’m not quite sure where my story ends, it’ll depend on Hundreds of AU their set.
So sorry for the delay there! Glad My Fiction sold sweatshirts cause now I’m ready to brave the cold.
This is Hundreds of AU right?
And I want to like any band I’ll ever play in if I ever do as much as their drummer does.
Drummers are just built different 🤣
Now I’m listening so I can end my story, let’s see where this band takes it. Do we ever reunite with our friend? Don’t we? Is there more public transport (probably).
Music is emotional and I often tend to compartalize music based on these emotions.
Fucking love seeing hundreds of au
They destroy every time
I actually genuinely like this band. Or even, the entire night to be fair. And that’s as someone ambivalent about the genre.
Welp, if you dragged me kicking and screaming into ska guess off you go into skramz with meeee
There’s something uncomfortable about that vague window-like thing in the bathroom right behind the stage, hahahaha
Hey, when is the last time I dragged you to a ska show? Even I am getting disillusioned with ska.
“not insane as crazy, insane as good”
We say crazy good all the time, no worries.
When’s the last time ska lmao
Just boomer it up at slackers gigs
Oh there’s been a bunch of ska gigs, I’ve just been ignoring them. They’re all getting to… internet for my liking
Anyway, you’re on social duty for this entire gig inc this band. You know it right?
Where did the crowd go anyway?
Yeah for real tho
Where were the my fictions dudes again?
Seems like you found them. Or their singer at least
So you’re at this event. You’re seeing your friend and they’re ignoring you; you really were an asshole that one time but damn, get over it. Your mutual friend shows up, unaware of the fall-out and makes you talk. It’s awkward. It doesn’t help. You realize it’s not you, it’s actually your friend being an asshole. You break apart, head home.
You deserve better friends, a better life, and sure, you still need to be better yourself, but you also deserve better.
Hundreds of AU is that playlist.
still haven’t kept shit from getting to me
You’re still stuck at the second act.
wanna buy some brogecoin
Next paycheck goes all in
Hey, think we should do one of those “who we are” type posts as to why we decided on MDH at some point…give all the danish and germans insight into ourselves haha
“we kinda suck sorry”
I think I just want an excuse to do a longform PMFS post to get it out of my system
