Late minute post due to a busy day, but this show was a huge treat to me 20 years ago on this day in 1998. Growing up in the early ‘90s I would have never expected to get to see Underdog. “The Vanishing Point” was such a stellar record when I first heard it. My friends and I talked about how we were gonna cover “Back to Back” due to it being such a bad ass song that got us pumped up, only problem is we didn’t even have a band haha. So getting to see Underdog was an amazing thing I never would have dreamed of. The show was huge as a lot of the events at the Showplace Theatre were during that time. Pretty solid venue that housed a lot of great hardcore shows. Underdog didn’t get a huge response and it seemed like a lot of the crowd weren’t too familiar of their stuff which was a shame. I think this was one of their first shows together in a long time as Into Another had been in full effect the years prior. But there definitely was a few of us in the pit who were stomping our feet and singing along. Sick of it All came out and destroyed the place as usual that night. What an unstoppable force that band is. The crowd for them was a lot more lively. Also note that this was a Friday the 13th, sadly nothing spooky happened other than the restroom at whatever Mighty Taco we probably ended up at. #underdog#sickofitall#soia @underdognyhc @sickofitallnyc #vision#ripdavefranklin#ensign#buffalohardcore#revelationrecords @revelationrecords #indecisionrecords

Awesome old photo posted by @davemandel last week! This was a Shai Hulud show I played I think in 1998 at the Showcase Theatre in Corona, CA! One of his photos from this show ended up in my 10th grade yearbook! Dave is a true pioneer photographer in hardcore and punk rock music. Using methods to capture the movement and energy of a live show that no one else did at the time! Much respect to him and he still carries that passion! Follow him on Instagram!

My statement of life in a dying world. Super excited to see Morning Again at FYA fest in January. Haven’t seen them since This is Hardcore 2015. Got a new 7” on Revelation Records too. @xkevinraybyersx #revelationrecords#fyafest#straightedge
This is a pretty solid split, I naturally lean towards the Good Riddance side though. I first heard the song 21 Guns back in high school and wondered why I liked a song that to me sounded so hardcore, you know compared to 70s/80s punk stuff I was into at the time. I didn’t know that song was by GR, when I downloaded it the artists title was also the song title. Only when I picked up their singles collection did I find out the truth. Check out the runout groove message, I accidentally saw it when taking these pictures, so cool. #goodriddance#ignite#revelationrecords#vinyl#record
