August 14th, 1998: Nerve Agents, Rain On the Parade, Count Me Out, Right Brigade, the Explosion, No Justice @ Falls Church VFW, Falls Church, VA

I think the flyer says enough. Amazing fucking show. I think I got the American Nightmare demo tape at this show. Did they play a few songs? By the looks of the flyer, Barfight would have been the "surprise guest", but I don't remember them playing. Maybe they did. I did sound for this show. I think Tru and Eric came up to me at one of the Supreme Imperial shows and asked if I knew anyone that had a PA that could do sound for their Falls Church VFW shows. The PA we were using at the Supreme Imperial was my friend Kevin's. Sometimes we used our friend Carlos's stuff as well. I talked to them about letting me use their equipment for these Malfunction shows and we worked out a deal and I ended up doing sound pretty often for those guys at the Falls Church VFW and then later on at High Fidelity Records in Woodbridge. There were some great shows. Linas Garsys made this flyer.

This show was definitely in 1999

I only doubt that as I'm a fucking geek and keep my flyers in chronological order AND the flyer says 1998. It'd be understandable to make that mistake in early January, but not in August.

Barfight played, I think they might have gone on first? I remember we got stuck in traffic on the way and only caught like one or two songs Barfight played. It was an awesome show, Nerve Agents and just about everybody on the bill was incredibly great. I actually have some great pics of this show too.

I definitely remember Barfight playing this show. For some reason I wanna say that Nine Lives played this also, but I'm probably thinking of another show at the VFW. at any rate, the Barfight thing I'm sure of.

I really think that show was in 1999 as well. Especially if you got the AN demo at it because TYF hadn't even broken up yet.

Better yet, the 14th was a Saturday in 1999 and not in 1998.
