Music Was Here: Dead Bars, Decent Criminal, All Away Lou, Heavy Lag @ Trans-Pecos (or self important dance parties)
Note: What do you do after barely surviving work after a hangover? If you’re anything like us, you get yourself together to do it all over again, with a little less tolerance than usual for self important dance parties.
Friends and friends and friends.
And Heavy Lag
And the same old crowd
Unsure if it’s close to sold out or if it’s the crowd standing in inconvenient places
Definitely more crowded than recent shows I’ve been to…
Mostly crowd, but combination as well , yeah. Dead Bars always does well here. They’ve got that local scene out.
Really half the local DIY Punk / Fest scene showed up
Heavy Lag really benefits from having a good sound. They’re a good band, but this is the best sound I’ve heard during their shows so far.
Feels like a feat in itself these days haha
Seeing someone with Aerial Salad merch is throwing me off a bit haha
Not an everyday occurrence!
Tried for some hair of the dog action with that last IPA we had at the house.
Unsuccessful. Still fighting it a bit haha
Shots shots shots
I like the outdoor area here. Never will be a fan of the smell of weed, but I’ll take it.
How to kick a hangover, bad advice dog style
Kick current hangover by creating a new one
We don’t have any responsibilities tomorrow so whatever
Gotta be up to watch my English football team lose (and had EPL fren hangs)
All Away Lou on now. This entire genre has so much more energy live than on record.
Like the indie-ish punk
It really does!
(also part of why I run extremely hot/cold on the genre usually)
That said, might wanna give that all away lou album a listen
It’s not going to work for me on record, I’ve tried it with all those bands (Caves, Martha, Doe, etc – or as I described it earlier, that Specialist Subjects sound) and it’s a very specific sound that I really dig live but never sticks on record.
The sound tonight is definitely ace though.
I know you’re more open so I hope it does for you!
Yeah. I’ll concede this is at least worth forming my own conclusions on
Right? Like every American venue, it’s a bit too loud for someone who keeps forgetting earplugs, but it’s good.
Dare I say that volume regulations should be a thing? I know how much Americans hate the idea of more government
LIVE FREE OR TINNITUS
Thing about that label is that I kinda dodged a lot that stuff since it didn’t seem like my thing…and it felt like it wasn’t my scene
They definitely got that sound that reminds me of going to shows here in the early 2010s. Type of band I might have seen at say…death by audio (RIP)
I got into that corner of the scene through the Dutch scene, back in the early 2010’s, back when everything was simpler.
Thanks for covering socials tonight, we didn’t actually discuss it but it’s appreciated as I try to yeet this hangover into the sun
Definitely fitting of a lot of house shows from that time
Explaining vaporwave with friends to friends >>>>>>
Haha yeah it’s good catching up with people. Sometimes I wonder how much of going to shows is just catching up with people
Decent Criminal is super catchy
Stuff is getting dropped, beers are being spilled and dancing is happening. Hey, it’s a show!
NATURE IS HEALING
Should’ve made some flyers for upcoming shows to rep
I thought about this. Or at least stickers
Wonder if those people starting their own pit ever heard of read the room
Cause they’re not reading
More like smoke the jeeb
Like yeah have fun but it’s not your private space.
Haha yeah there’s definitely those vibes.
This song isn’t my jam. It sounds like weed, haha
Failed piss test energy in that pit
This is why I dubbed you “very funny” on this chat, cause dude, I’m definitely not that.
Fuckin euphoria-high ass pit
Hahah I keep typing shit and sometimes I say something that’s amusing. It’s rare lmao
THE VROOM SONG
Haha, I am just allergic to the self-importance of some people
Welp, if it’s that same pit during dead bars and I’m tryna vibe then I ain’t gonna be pleased
Do your fuckin horse tranqs someplace else
Dang, the intro to this decent criminal song kinda sounded like lazy eye by silversun pickups
Dead Bars always deliver live
Oh they do for sure!
Vibes also look a lot better in the audience than during Decent Criminal. Less self important dance parties, more all having fun together
I was wrong
GET KETAMINE OUT OF PUNK
Also looks like you’re not the only one who grew out your hair during thr past year.
man I almost miss straight edge scenes but then remember those straight edge hardcore kids are one of the worst offenders
Earth crisis did nothing wrong
Love to see it
Quarhair never care
I’m not sure how I’m feeling about these new songs. Yeah, they deliver live but they sound like on record it might be our kryptonite of slow weed
Also no wonder for a second I thought he was Jose.
I want to start a weed punk band called Self Important Dance Party now.
That’s how you regulate a pit of fuckin druggies
Dunno how they’d be recorded either. Fair to wonder
SELF IMPORTANT DANCE PARTYYYYYYY
Note: We ran into friends and friends and friends after Dead Bars. We had so much fun, all bands exceeded our expectations and by this point, our hangover was turning into a good buzz.
What in the nerdcore is this after thing?
Haha I saw the Schaeffer the darklord lookalike
Note: At this point we forgot all about Music Dies Here and went where the night took us. Which ended with an (as always expensive) Uber back home around 4:30am. We slept until late Saturday. Thanks for partying!
