First band was Blackened Crust band from North Carolina, Young And In The Way. They set up the stage with candles and a random stage prop. They played a slow creepy long song then busted out to the loud fast evil crust. The lead singer had so much stage rage he head banged all over and kept flipping us off. The music was a great Black/Crust vibe with Mayhem and Doom influences. After throwing beer at us,he took the sheet off the prop. It was animal head(I think a pig). He burned a bit with a lighter,then threw at the audience. For being the first band to play,they where seriously the best and my favorite. After the set I bought a shirt/patch. This was their first West Coast show and I really hope they come here more often. Listen to "I Am Not What I Am."
