I posted about a while back. xHead Onx took the place of In Reach, and I'm fairly positive that Atari did not play. Andy Norton (Desperate Measures, Champion, Praise, etc.), who I'm pretty sure played in Society at Stake, booked this one.

May 20, 2000: Kitty Badass, The Deacons, The Pac-Men, Tomorrow We Die, Looks Like Rain @ Newtown Teen Center, Newtown, CT
the location of one of the worst school shootings in American history. (Sadly coincidentally, I'm writing this post on the day of yet another school shooting in the U.S.) I don't remember much from this show except that I bought a cassette copy of "Age of Quarrel" off of someone selling a bunch of used records and tapes. Still have it. The Pac-Men were a rad hc/punk band, that I just realized featured ex-Pist member, and future WarXGames drummer, Brian Marshall on vocals. Neat little round-about Baltimore connection.

This was an outdoor show on a stage at the bottom of a hill. Probably great for jam bands, but not so great for a hardcore show. My memory from our set is covering Slapshot - "In Your Face" and getting picked up and carried around by a bunch of huge Courage Crew dudes. Either Onslaught or Battleground (or maybe both?) was a Courage Crew band. Full on hand-tattoo Xs and all. Since this was a college-sponsored show, we also got paid handsomely for being a band from out of town that nobody knew.

March 26, 2000: Reinforce, De Nada, What Lies Ahead, Scream for Change, Looks Like Rain @ Sushi Cafe, Baltimore, MD
OK, we've wrapped up the series of (mostly) Chop Shop posters created by Damon Pieri and now we're jumping up a year and getting back into the recovered Looks Like Rain flyers. Here's a bunch of flyers for a show at the Sushi Cafe. If I remember correctly, Reinforce cancelled this show and it ended up as an all locals show. I know I have a handful of pictures from this show that I'll have to dig up. Pretty sure this was the show where a random guy from the neighborhood came in and started moshing with everyone during De Nada's set. This is the first appearance of Scream for Change on a flyer in this blog. The honorable Andy Norton played in that band, long before his stints in Desperate Measures, Champion, or Praise. I'm not sure who made the top flyer or the third one. I made the second one, and John Bachman made the fourth one.
