Every time the band I’m in books a local show (which is getting more and more infrequent) I inevitably find there’s another show that same night that I want to attend. But usually it’s not the first time in nearly a decade since I’ve last seen a band on the bill, and usually it’s not the last time I’ll probably ever be able to see said band.

Wafflehouse*

Seriously. The Silent Years, Child Bite, and Rescue would (have) never be/been what they are/were if it weren’t for the dissection of Wafflehouse*. Last time I saw them was at Red Shirt Brigade’s1 final show at CPop.

Oddly enough, Al Scheurman (Rescue’s lead guy) is doing a set at our show. Which is quite ironic if you consider what the Detroit indie scene looked like back in 2000-01. I wonder what the rest of the Michigan Hardcore Board is up to that night…

1 A Band with members in Thunderbirds Are Now!, Pas/Cal, Zoos of Berlin, South South Million, The Big Mess, and Friendly Foes
