October 23rd, 1998: All Out War, Shutdown, Straight Faced, Buried Alive @ UMBC Commuter Cafe, Baltimore, MD
I never cared much for All Out War, but they were taking Buried Alive on tour with them and I really wanted to book them so I confirmed a Baltimore date for the tour. A week later I got a call about Shutdown and Straight Faced touring together. I didn't care for Straight Faced at all but I was into that first Shutdown album at the time and was into having them come through. Straight Faced ended up cancelling, but I can't remember why. Also can't remember if I got a replacement or if it just ended up being three bands. Part of me thinks Innerside Burning was the replacement, but I could be wrong. There was some mosh, as you might expect.
