Upon further investigation, it appears there was only one Blacktop Cadence full-length. I was thinking of the song from the Emo Diaries comp, "Cold Night In Virginia". That's a great song and I was kinda bummed that nothing on the full-length really came close to it.

March 12th, 1998: Blacktop Cadence, Jejune, GlenmontSoundSystem, Epstein, Speedwell @ UMBC Commuter Cafe, Baltimore, MD
I don't remember how I first got hooked up with Eva from Fata Booking but I did a lot of shows for her and I believe this was the first one. I thought Blacktop Cadence was decent, but I was a huge Hot Water Music fan (still am of everything up to No Division) so I was happy to book them. I didn't know much about Jejune accept that all the indie nerds loved them. I wasn't too hip to the indie scene in the area at the time so I'm pretty sure Joe Mitra was the one that suggested the three locals that played. Drew Thiemann may have had a hand in helping as well. GlenmontSoundSystem was Joe's band. I think Boson Au was in that band as well. I don't remember much about Epstein or Speedwell. Did anyone from those bands go on to do anything else? I have a feeling that Scott Cullum, from Bridgewater, made this flyer, but I could be wrong. That first Blacktop Cadence record was pretty good, but I couldn't get into the follow up at all. If we're talking HWM side-projects, I'll take Rumbleseat any time. Good stuff.
