December 14, 2000: The Hope Conspiracy, Commin' Correct, Gamewinner, Looks Like Rain, The Gacy Project @ The Sidebar, Baltimore, MD

Here's two versions of the same flyer for a fun show at The Sidebar. I got to play two sets here: one on bass with The Gacy Project and one on the mic for Looks Like Rain. Jamie Arthurs booked the show. I made the flyer on top. Not sure who made the other one. Maybe Alex D. I like how they both say "Fuck shit up." I have no idea what's up with that. The Hope Conspiracy were great at this time. "Cold Blue" and that next EP before "Endnote" are great. I can't say for sure that I watched Commin' Correct. Just not my thing.

December 9, 2000: Mouthpiece, Count Me Out, Darkest Hour, No Justice, Shark Attack, Dead Serious @ St. Stephen's Church, Washington, DC

Here's a couple versions of the flyer for one of the greatest hardcore shows in DC history. Sounds like some hyperbole, but this show was legit. Tru and Eric booked the show. Linas made the flyer. The bottom one was the actual line-up. Not sure why Damage had to drop. I did sound for this show and took video from the back of the room. Gotta get that uploaded (Mark Anthony?). Every band was great but most people remember two insane quotes from this night, Gene M (No Justice drummer) being the target of both. To the best of my memory...

1) "If I don't get an apology, not only is it gonna be No Justice's last show, it's gonna be his, too." - Matt Summers, Shark Attack

2) "Fuck this motherfuckers drums up!" - Timmy, No Justice, during their set

There's a few videos of the No Justice set on YouTube. Here's the first one. I know everyone is gonna have a million memories from this show. Please share.

December 8, 2000: New Found Glory, Midtown, River City High, Hot Rod Circuit, the Stryder, and Dashboard Confessional @ St. Andrew's Church, College Park, MD

I didn't go to this show but I'm sure it was huge. This show represented all that was wrong with "punk" bands going the corporate route. Jamie Arthurs booked it. Carl Caracia made the flyer.
