August 20, 2000: What Lies Ahead, Project 208, Latchkey, Looks Like Rain, Tries Too Hard @ Sushi Cafe, Baltimore, MD

I booked the show, Brian Flowers made the flyer. Project 208 were a hardcore band from VA Beach with a sense of melody to their music. No idea what those guys are up to these days. I still have no idea who was in Latchkey. Any help would be great. I also don't remember who was in Tries Too Hard, but I know they were from southern Maryland. What I do remember about them is that they insisted there name was Tries To Hard. At least, that was what was on their stickers, and when I mentioned the grammatical error to them they told me that was how it was supposed to be. Don't ask me what it means to try to hard. I've never heard hard used as an action. Still makes me chuckle after all these years.

Latchkey were good punk rock, some of my friends from high school were in that band at one time or another, Todd Davis, Todd Bochabello, Chris Crabtree, and Shawn Coleman. Other projects some of them went on to were VPR, Supreme Commander, Burning Desire, Wake Up Cold, etc. Todd D used to skate all the time with Matt Fulchiron when we were kids. I dont know the guys in Tries To Hard, except I remember meeting them once and I thought the same exact thing about their name, lol.

Sweet! Thanks for the info Jason. That lineage is ringing a bell now. I totally forgot you knew Matt, also. So bummed I missed him when he toured with Daniel Tosh.
