Show was pretty damn cool last night, IWrestedABearOnce put on a great show. Usually go to Rolo Tomassi for my bat**** insane mathcore needs but I like the new singer quite a bit. Chilled with them and the bassist from the Human Abstract in the green room and after the show. Tobin Abasi came by as well but I didn't end up talking to him. We played after IWABO so a lot of people left without seeing us but Courtney was nice enough to tell everyone to stay for us three separate times so we had a decent crowd of 30-40 people. Drummer kicked through the bass head in the middle of the set so things sounded pretty empty but the crowd seemed to like us quite a bit as we got plenty of people walking up to us after the show giving us compliments and some drunk girl trying to buy us drinks but the bar wouldn't do it as everyone is underage.
Moral of the story is, support local music, even if you don't like the scene, if you buy a few drinks and sit in the back headbanging the band will notice you and be incredibly grateful. Musicians aren't going to get any better if no one supports them when they are young.
Edit: Also support local music because their is no better feeling than waking up in the morning with every muscle in your body thrashed. Took me like 4 hours after waking up just to walk to the kitchen to get breakfast, I then walked back to my room and fell asleep again, rinse/repeat the rest of the day.
