First band was Hordes. One of my favorite local hxc bands. Tho it was still pretty empty when they played they still gave it their all and did a great short set. These guys rule hard and your missing out if you haven't seen em. Download EP here!
From Japan we got the legendary Forward(with members of Death Side). They started and we all went nuts. Me and a bunch of of HxC and Punk kids moshed around like crazy and loved their set. They left and came back for more. The singer mentioned something about being from Japan and BOOM they busted to G.I.S.M.(the best band to ever come out of Japan) covers,Endless Blockades For The Pussyfooter and NIH Nightmare. I stage dived and screamed my ass off. They where so good and I hope to come back to USA soon. Japcore for the win. I bought a pin with m loose change. They rule hard.
