This was the second show I ever put on. It was an afternoon matinee show with some bands from Ohio. I had some punk friends who put me in touch with Hyper as Hell who were from Kent and False Hope and Confront who were from Cleveland. The show was a matinee because we could do it as an all ages show.
But more importantly, my brother's friend was moving out of his house and they house was to be levelled so we had a house wrecking party that night at which these bands were supposed to play. Things went horribly wrong at the night show and the bands didn't even get to take their equipment out of the vans. The night ended with thousand of high school kids being dispersed by cops and Sons of Ishmael would go on to write a song called "The Hallowe'en Party" which would get released on the "Sons of Ishmael sing Generic Crap" ep. Above is the flyer we handed out at the matinee. It was like a bonus show.
