July 28 - Aug 12, 2000: Sidebar calendar

This is a calendar flyer designed by Carl Caracia for a handful of shows at the Sidebar. I don't remember who Box Car Children were (did they play that Swarm show at the Kaffa House?), but The 65 Film Show were a rad post-hardcore-ish band from Virginia Beach. I think Curtiss Williams from Time Flies played in that band if I remember correctly. Not sure if any of them made any music after that band. Garrison was a post-hardcore band on Revelation that had a couple of decent songs, but didn't really grab me. Same thing goes for The Stryder from Long Island. That August 5th show was pretty cool. Midtown sucked and I don't know who The Falls Version was, but The Stereo, The Movielife, and The Misery were all great. The Misery were a melodic hardcore band out of Baltimore with Aaron from Torn Apart/Behind Closed Doors, PJ (Ziggy from The Wire), Pete Hilton, and I can't remember who else. I'll try to remember to upload that demo this weekend. I definitely didn't attend that Commin Correct show, but CodeSeven were a decent band with cool guys.

EDIT: Found this post-posting this post...

Curtis was also in The Takeover with 65's drummer Adam Barone. Adam was in Psycho 78 (who were awesome), and more recently some post hardcore thing called Head to Wall (their "demo EP" had backed on it, which I found strange.) Curtis did a short lived kind of post-punk band with Mike Ireland (I Am The Avalanche, Project 208, Revenge Therapy, Psycho 78, etc.) called Sex Sells. Now he does a solo thing (in 2010 he did one of those "song a week for a year" projects with this,) called Raise Hell Over The Summer. His newest band is apparently called International Affairs, but I don't know anything else about that yet.

Cool stuff, Mike. Thanks.

I'm not familiar with Cobra Starship, but, yes, I forgot that Jeremy played in the Misery as well. Thanks for the info! Gonna go look for that Misery demo right now.
