October 21, 2000: Mouthpiece, Count Me Out, The Killing Flame, Intention @ The Kill Time, Philadelphia, PA

I only attended the Mouthpiece show on this double-flyer. The Kill Time was a cool space right next door to Stalag 13 in West Philly. It was basically a gutted rowhouse that was primarily an art gallery, if I remember correctly. It probably held 200 people jam-packed. Robby Redcheeks booked this one, which was one of the first, if not the first, reunion shows that Mouthpiece did when they got back together for a little while in the early 2000s. Count Me Out were (and are) one of my favorite bands of the time so travelling to Philly for this one was a no-brainer. I never cared for The Killing Flame (mems. of Unity, Uniform Choice, Ignite, Hands Tied, No For An Answer) and seeing them live didn't help. A bit of a bummer considering the resume of the members. Intention were a band of younger kids doing some straight forward youth crew hardcore. The band was decent but not long after their demise came the birth of Full Contact, who released a decent demo and then went on to become Knockdown who put out one of my favorite records of the mid-2000s. Zach later formed Violent Minds who put out a bunch of killer records. I have no idea if he's still doing bands or not.

As far as I remember, this was the first show back. They played this show and then three shows that winter.

Zach was also in Violent Minds and Shark Attack.

Supposedly, Knockdown was going to play the Youngblood showcase last year as the special guest but that never happened. Boooooo.
