Cleveland, June 11th: The show last night was good. Now That's Class was pretty hopping AND it was dollar off beer night (or maybe it was only a dollar off for an unknown time period, but Kidd bought me two beers... and it cost him a whopping two dollars... BANG
)! I have to say ice cold, fresh, Blatz
is hard to beat... It's not better than Keystone Light, though. For some reason there was a lot of ninja style fighting going on from friends and band members alike. That might be an ongoing tour thing, but I'm not sure. The lineup consisted of Worlds Becoming, a Maiden-esq band, followed by Bled The Night, a core-esq band, then Law Of Destruction, a thrash/groove band featuring members of Crypt Kicker, and a few Tim Owens projects. We headlined and we don't normally do that. It was fun. It was a very "diversified"
show, I think. Thanks to all who showed up and Paul, owner of one of Cleveland's finest venues! Heading to Pittsburgh in a little while.
Favorite Moment: One of Bled The Night's guitar players covered his eyes with his picking hand and began doing pull offs on his guitar with the other. While doing so he began inching his way toward the front of the stage unaware of the actual distance between himself and the edge. Before you know it half his foot hits the edge, the hand comes off the eyes, and a moment of terror passes his face. It actually scared me. The stage isn't that far from floor level, but anyone who's seen "Grape Stomp" knows you don't need a big drop to fuck shit up. Regardless, no one was hurt and it was laughable (I probably would have laughed if he fell, too... but only if he wasn't hurt too
