This little booger colored board reminded me of Modern Life Is War's Witness album (specifically D.E.A.D.R.A.M.O.N.E.S., track 5) that was released in 2005. First, I cannot wrap my mind around the fact that it was six years ago. And lastly, it is still one of my favorite records of all time. Anytime they came to town, they generally played at Lemp Neighborhood Arts Center in South City and was filled with skaters, moshers, musicians, artists, poor, rich and everyother type of kids you could possibly think of. Granted the building is hot and shows cost as much as a medium pizza from Dominos which may or maynot help the touring bands pay for gas to the next show, but it was these perks that made it worth it. I found my niche with hardcore music and I know that nothing will ever take me away from something that means the world to me.
Bottom line: do not tell me that punk is dead. As long as cities will continue to exist, angry punk kids will still make up the population of these cities....and get Witness!
a little punk rock goes a long way. we out here.
