I'm not at all connected to what's going on in the world of hardcore music today -- you kids, and your loud music, and your tattoos, and why are you so angry? -- but oh holy Jesus, I walked into Criminal Records today, and saw a poster for a Gorilla Biscuits show on August 29th.
Gorilla. Fucking. Biscuits.
I haven't listened to the GBs in years, and I haven't been anything approaching straight edge in more than a decade. But when I was 16, 17 years old, these guys were my favorite band on earth.
I think I have to go, even though it's probably in poor taste for a 33-year-old drunk to be attending a straight-edge hardcore show out of weird 1989 nostalgia.
On the other hand, the Biscuits are probably all 33-year-old drunks by now!
