May 20, 2000: Kitty Badass, The Deacons, The Pac-Men, Tomorrow We Die, Looks Like Rain @ Newtown Teen Center, Newtown, CT

A week later and Looks Like Rain is up in Connecticut for a show in Newtown, a town to later become known nationwide as 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.
