... or by it's proper name - Steve Ignorant Presents Crass Songs 1977-1984. As long as you went in not expecting Penny and company there should have been no problems. I was happy, Gizz from Broken Bones played guitar. English bands like English Dogs and Broken Bones helped me make the connection between metal and punk in those early years. I wasn't there to shoot the show, actually two of the kindest people ever got me in to the sold out show, Chad Strife and London May- THANKS guys! And for the record I was never the biggest Crass fan but this was a good show and I think Steve sounded great. Better than him was Nicole taking over for Eves songs... highlight of the night for me was So What?

And we all know how much I love Chain of Strength, so I was excited to see this bands first show. It was a quick set but they were on fire. I missed Outspoken the first night due to work so I was glad to get a chance to see them Monday night.

No Curtis for the second night but Mouthpiece did get Porcell to do Straight Edge Revenge. I'll say it again- Youth of Today were just as great now as they were 20 years ago. But I thought the show was going to end early though, just past the half way point of Youth of Todays set Ray fell and hurt his leg. Porcell took
