    when is the last time you even heard of Toad The Wet Sprocket doing anything? hahahaha. What, they couldn't get King Cobb Steelie?

    And no. I would not die for the Barenaked Ladies.

    The concept of socially distanced shows is ridiculous. There's always some tool with four pints in their hand nudging people out of the way all the way from the bar at the back because they think that buying rip off beer gives them a justification to push people around. Then there are the twats with backpacks who want to wedge themselves between you and the person in front, the people that just want to grab others and shove in because they were sensible enough to get there early for a good view, crowd surfers who are just begging for me to punch them in the balls, and the most egregious of all: the random stranger that wants to have a conversation with you about the gig during the gig.

    I stopped going to gigs three years ago because I just spend most of my time evaluating threats from audience members and not listening to the music. I once spent a whole Alice in Chains gig convincing myself that some suspiciously calm Japanese salary man type was a suicide bomber. I'd also had a dodgy KFC before and only just made it back to my friend's house before having a double ended blowout all over his bathroom floor.
    I'm bitter, I'm twisted, James Joyce is fucking my sister.

    I miss going to shows,but they could bring back all my fave dead musicians and I wouldn't go right now.

    Plus add in how much I hate crowds and drunks and loud people.

    Having worked at a KFC long ago, I can tell you that there is no such thing.

    This was the notorious KFC in Leicester Square, unfortunately I only found out about its reputation after the fact!

    Normally I'd be all over this, but right now going to a hardcore show just seems like a bad idea to me so as much as I'd love to see any live music right now, I'll be sitting this one out.
    I saw a lot of videos of today's TS Park show, and the bands were amazing. that being said, I'm glad that I wasn't there, even if I wanted to be. There was no way to distance in that crowd. and like 6 people were wearing masks. As has been stated, masks don't stop you from getting it, but they do stop you from spreading it; fully anticipating a few cases coming out from this one.

    The NYHC scene can be a lot of fun and there are a lot of good people involved in it. There are also a lot of idiots. if not for Covid, I'd have been there, I've seen a few hardcore shows at Tompkins over the years and they're fun, but not worth possibly getting sick over right now.
    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    The funny thing is that a lot of the NYHC guys are great as you say, and a lot of them will talk about division in the media and black and white points of view...so it's interesting that when some people commented on it on twitter (the lack of masks and distancing), John Joseph is the one who gets coverage on blabbermouth complaining about BLM protests and looters and nobody complaining about it, then telling people if they didn't want to go they could stay home and "we didn't miss your ass, anyway". JJ has also been pretty vocal about how he doesn't think that Covid is serious; it's really a shame that he's the spokesperson for what went on yesterday.

    Anyway, quite a few people I know were there, and in the pics those people weren't wearing masks, and I hope that the need to see live music and not wear a mask doesn't kill any of them off.

    The world may improve if it does.
