January 23/24, 1999: Matt Leveton benefit show, Manville Elks Lodge, Manville, NJ
Dan Paulson sent me this flyer to post, so we're stepping out of the chronological order for a minute. I remember this show happening but I was not able to make it. The show was a benefit for Matt Leveton who booked a lot of the Manville Elks Lodge shows and was severely injured in a car accident in South Carolina, on his way to a Quicksand show. The shows there didn't start up until after I had moved to Baltimore so I never went to any, but they were a great boon to the NJ hardcore scene. (My experiences with Manville consisted of trips to the paintball supply store located there when I was in high school.) The line-up of this show is a testament to what Matt's shows meant to some of the best bands of the era. Agnostic Front was the special guest on the 2nd day. Killer show for a great cause.
