May 13th, 2000: Ensign, Shutdown, Time Flies, 200 North, Looks Like Rain @ Kingpin, Hagerstown, MD

The Kingpin was a short-lived venue that Zac and/or Adam from Strong Intention ran in Hagerstown after the 180 Club closed down. I only remember a few hardcore shows happening there. This one was pretty fun. I met Dave Jannes at this show. Solid dude. He got pretty stoked on Looks Like Rain, which made shows with him in attendance more fun. I couldn't tell you much about 200 North besides the fact that they were a youth crew band from western Maryland. I think that Think Fast! Records released something for them. Might have been someone else. If anyone knows if any of those dudes are still playing in bands, fill us in.
