September 27th, 1998: Cross My Heart, Wrong Button, the Exploder, 5 Gold Stars @ Ottobar, Baltimore, MD
Hmmm, I saw Cross My Heart and The Exploder at the old Ottobar so many times they all get jumbled together. I'm pretty sure this was when Eric Kane (Strike Anywhere) was playing drums for The Exploder. They were such a rad band. I still spin their records fairly often. I also seem to like "West End Kids Crusade" more than anyone else I know. Cross My Heart are one of my favorite Baltimore bands ever. Indie/emo perfected. Funny aside, I am now engaged to the girl that that first EP (and probably a bunch of later songs) was about. Wrong Button were decent, but never really grabbed me. I can't remember who 5 Gold Stars were. Not sure who made this flyer, but I always liked it.
