We're in Hardcore territory now, and I guess it may a bit even out of my league. It's chaos.
Mother Of Mercy played a tight, metal influenced, Hardcore. They songs featured a sense of intricate musicianship while still maintaing sounds that are to grab onto and enjoy.
Bitter End did an unrelenting set of their top notch Hardcore that seemed to attract nearly every person that would show up that night. They a lot particularly, but they certainly played hard, and poured all their energy into their performance.
Outbreak represented the punk side of things for the night, while still maintaing some Hardcore traces. They played an ultra tight, stop on a dime, jeckyl and hyde sound changes. On top of the energetic stage show their vocalist would make frequent trips into the audience to get as close as possible. Unfortunately due to the genre barrier right where there should have a raging pit there was nothingness, except for a perplexed audience.
Sick Of It All tore through an amazing, crowd pleasing set. Featuring songs from their 1st EP as a hardcore Punk outfit to their 2010 release as Hardcore legends, and everywhere in between. Since it was the last night of the tour you could feel a since of grand finale, all or nothing excitement in the air. The audience, whether first timers or 25 year fans, spent nearly every moment thrashing or screaming and jumping like sharks for the microphone. When they weren't ripping the club apart with their intense songs they would stop and interact with the audience. Including chit chatting individual fans, and even wishing a teenager who apparently left the show, Happy Birthday. They managed to start a massive pit just by requesting it, and got a completely split room for a wall of death near the very end of their set.
Bottom Line if you like Hardcore, or Sick Of It All you should've have been there, and need to be there next time!
