3/27/2013 - Double Negative and Whatever Brains

Double Negative has suffered the loss of another drummer, Bobby is no longer with the band. Luckily they picked up an even younger and super promising drummer, my friend Connor who plays in Last Words and Abuse. It was great to see their original drummer off to the side getting excited at Connor killing it during their set. If you haven't kept up with Double Negative, they've have Cameron who used to be in Logic Problem way back is now singing. This is my second time seeing them with him singing and he brought a ton of energy to the small space in Slims.
Whatever Brains are some old old friends. These people have been in bands, put on shows in their houses, and been into music the whole time I have lived in Raleigh. I mainly filmed Rich because it is great to see him going crazy and making weird faces.

I did not get Neo Cons due to my camera almost getting destroyed in the first five seconds of them going on. In fact I think the singer's mic swung the dial from on to off as he dove past me. Sorry!

From The Vaults: SF&L Fest (2011)

I have always regretted not going to see Fiesta Grande or the Gilman Street Speed Trials. West Coast powerviolence has been something I always wanted to see in person in its element. Despise You killed it at MDF a year before and I wanted more! Lack Of Interest and Plutocracy bands I never thought I'd see, and unfortunately most of you will now never see Plutocracy. My friend Ziggy and I flew all the way out to Berkeley to see these bands. I was armed with my camera phone and this is what I managed get of this glorious fest:

From The Vaults - Youth Of Today (2011)

One of my favorite bands ever, Youth Of Today killed it at Chaos In Tejas. Ray Capo had super positive stage banter and they sounded amazing. I was stuck behind two girls who chatted half the set and hardly watched the band, then they moved out of the way and I had a perfect view of the band killing it. Here is the video I got... I still go back and watch or listen to it sometimes to relive that show.
