Also, what I suppose you could call a eulogy to the Molotov Compromise below.
Now, before we get started I'd like say a few things about the band. They've been around the Houston scene way before I was even going to any shows, though others have surely known them longer they still mean a lot to this site. They were a lot of firsts for us. They were: one of the first bands we ever reviewed, one of the first ska bands I was actually impressed with, the first people to be supportive of the site(even before they had seen it), the first to send us a complaint(I bet they don't remember that though. Haha), and the first to give us a free cd(review coming soon). Plus, they were the first band ever to play Turkey Jam. They've always played hard anytime I've seen them, and they've always been cool people. I was really disappointed about missing most of their set at the Fitzgeralds show last month, and having to miss their official last show(which always translates to "Our last show til we get back together in 10 years" in Punk). But anyway I'll always have this shows memory.
Molotov Compromise played a set perfectly fitting for the venue: off the wall, fun, and intimate. Though quite a few were there just to watch the skating there was a small crowd there for the music. Some even exclusively came to soak in all of Molotov they could before the end. They played through most of their own songs like "Religious Profiteers"; which had almost everyone immediately surrounding the band join in to shout the ending chant, and the mandatory ska version of Minor Threat's "I Don't Want To Hear It". By the time the end of their set neared they had poured out an amazing, whole-hearted ska-core performance, but nobody wanted it to end. They played a second farewell song before thanking the crowd, and taking off for Walter's On Washington.
