I got to the show just when the first band was finishing up their set. I don't know who the band is, but I didn't like their sound-so I'm glad I got there late.
The first band that I saw was Kill The Man Who Questions, a hardcore band from Philly. As soon as they started playing, you could feel the energy of their set. The band had some technical difficulty throughout the set, but their music definately made up for it. The kids were dancing around and having a good time. The lead singer was really into the set as well, he was constantly running around the dancing area, singing and falling on the floor a lot. This band was really great and they knew how to put on a great show. I can't wait to see these guys again!
Next up was Voorhies-all the way from England. Voorhies puts on a really great set. I've never heard this band before, but a lot of the kids at the show had and they were really getting into the set. I didn't know any of their original songs, however, I did recognize 2 covers: One Negative Approach cover, and the other was Misfits' "Demonamia."
Kill Your Idols was up last. KYI had their best set in a while now. It was their last show of the tour and because of the fact that it was in their hometown, they had to go out with a bang. No sooner did they start when the place became unglued. Everyone was moving around and singing along. Not a soul in the place was dry.
What I liked about KYI playing in ABC is that ABC has no stage, so it's easier to sing along to all the tunes. The microphone was constantly in the crowd somewhere as the kids sang into the mic constantly as KYI whipped up all of their best songs.
I must say that this band never disappoints me. They always give it 110% and the crowd does the same for them. It's a reaction that NY bands get only in NY and no place else.
The show was a blast and I had fun. I always love going to good shows, because at least for the duration of the show, you forget all your troubles and just enjoy being there.
