September 18th, 1999: Earth Crisis, Brother's Keeper, Buried Alive, the Enkindels @ Forward Hall, Erie, PA

This show was put on by Mike Ski, frontman for Brother's Keeper, as a celebration of his wedding the day before. I can't remember who I made the trek up to Erie with but I'm sure Kelly Shaw was involved. I think The Enkindels were the band I was most excited to see. I was playing their Buzzclip 2000 record a lot around this time. Buried Alive always kinda bored me. Brother's Keeper were fun but I wasn't digging them as much by this time as I had earlier. I had no interest in Earth Crisis's Breed the Killer album and besides that they pretty much only played the "hits" from their earlier stuff, which was fine and fun, but they just didn't do much for me anymore. Still, the entire show had a really fun vibe to it and it was all for a happy occasion. Too bad sometimes the memories last longer than the marriage.
