January 29th, 2000: De Nada, Ultimate Warriors, Daybreak, Striking Distance, Gamewinner @ Kaffa House, Washington, DC

What a great line-up. Unfortunately I don't remember a thing from this show. Alex D, please grace us with your memories. Until then...the Ultimate Warriors are the only band on this flyer that I haven't already mentioned in the blog. They were a powerviolence band from the Lehigh Valley in northeast Pennsylvania. Members also played or currently play in the Gatecrashers, Pissed Jeans, and Slingshot Dakota. If you can't tell by their name, their schtick was wrestling. They put out a couple 7"s, an LP, and a bunch of split 7"s, including one with Daybreak. Rad, fun band.

a lot of these kaffa house shows blend together, but i want to say No Justice jumped on and did a short set which ended up with some dude catching a barstool to his face.

Glad you're doing the blog again, Mike.

Like Alex said, a lot of the Kaffa House shows blend together, but I do remember the Ultimate Warriors (or at least the singer) dressing up in full Ultimate Warrior gear. This was basically a child's Halloween costume being worn by somebody way too big for it. The costume included a mask that covered his whole face, which made it nearly impossible for his voice to actually get to the microphone.
