This Saturday I will (hopefully) be in the middle of a crazy hardcore show at my local venue Chain Reaction. On the agenda? Only one of the most influential and epic hardcore bands in the last 10 years or so and one of hardcore's most promising up and comers. Headlining the show is seminal straight edge hardcore band Bane. To say I am stoked to see them play is an understatement. They haven't released an album since 2005 but they still tour here and there. Opening for them is one of my favorite new bands, Defeater. Defeater's new one, Empty Days and Sleepless Nights, has been blowing my mind since they released it earlier this year and will most likely land atop my Top 10 list for the year. It should be a hell of a time. Luckily I won't have to enjoy it alone as one of Ash's coworkers who has become a friend of mine is coming with. I almost punched a hole in my wall at work today while listening to Defeater and getting pumped up for the show. I will try to capture some pictures at the show and post them on here.
