Eyes Upon Separation and would go on to form Hawthorne Heights. No recollection on who Splitsecond were, but the name sounds like a ska band. I remember that Mountain Oyster Cult featured members of Ironboss, though I don't remember who. No idea who booked this. I think I met my friend Kim McCready at this show.

March 12, 2000: Crispus Attucks, Wheelbite, The Control, Daybreak, Looks Like Rain @ the Kaffa House, Washington, DC
*UPDATE: Thanks to Jeremy Smith, who played in The Control, for refreshing my memory. This show didn't actually happen. We all showed up to the venue and the doors were locked and no one ever came to open up. Don't recall what happened but clearly some miscommunication.

February 13, 2000: Law Biting Citizens, Pale Creation, Eyes Upon Separation, Looks Like Rain @ 123 Pleasant St, Morgantown, WV
Law Biting Citizens were the local hardcore heroes at the time. Pale Creation were a metallic hardcore band from Cleveland along the lines of Starkweather and other tech-ish metal bands of the late 90s. If you've spent any time among Dom Romeo, than you know the "legend" of Nick Fiction. Eyes Upon Separation were an Ohio metal/hc band featuring JT Woodruff who would go on to form Hawthorne Heights. According to Wikipedia, the drummer also went on to join Today Is the Day.
It's always fun to look back at these old flyers and make the connections to bands that featured people that would go on to play in pretty big bands.

February 5, 2000: Looks Like Rain, Red Angel Dragnet, Brace, Seven Ages @ the Solar Haus, Blacksburg, VA
Anyway, in pulling out the flyers, I found some that were in a folder for Looks Like Rain stuff (my old band), so we're gonna get out of chronological order for a bit and fill in some holes for the year 2000. This flyer is from a show that LLR played in Blacksburg, VA with Bryan Flowers's (LLR drummer) old band, Seven Ages, as well as Brace and Red Angel Dragnet. As it's been six years since the last post, my memory is even worse, so forgive me when I don't remember too many details from some of these shows. I do remember that Solar Haus shows were always a lot of fun. Can't remember much about the band Red Angel Dragnet other than Bryan booked them a few times after he moved to Baltimore.
I welcome your comments if you've got any memories of any of the shows I post.
