Worlds Greatest Basement Show


So, we arrived in Atlanta at around 10pm. It took us awhile to find the road we were suppose to turn on due toAtlanta’s weird placement of street signs. But after a few miles of granny driving we were able to find the house we suppose to be playing at on Mayson Ave. There were cars lining the street on both sides. We saw Trevor from Street Violence in the street wave us down this drive way to a sea of people. There most of been 200 people at this basement show so much so that they couldn’t even fit all in the house at one time. The band that played before was really awesome The Chandus then we have to move our equipment through the crowd of people to set up in the basement with an exposed ceiling and pretty cool lighting setup. Also they managed to score 10 cases of this malt liqour called Dog Bite it was terrible but by the time we showed up all of them were gone. So we sent Todd to the store to retrieve us what we can’t have in Florida Colt 45 40’s.
We played a great set we were told to play Reading Rainbow or else so we did. The kids were dancing so crazy they were tearing the ceiling down and hanging from it. A lonely punk rawker with a sick mohawk circle pitted by himself around a pole in the center of the basement. Atlanta kids will mosh to Yanni I swear but shit do we love each and everyone we meet in Atlanta and if we weren’t on a mission to save Orlando we would totally live there. We sold about 9 records just hustling in the crowd. We also put on in Criminal Records in Little Five Pionts so if you live in ATL and you didn’t have any money at the house party to pick up the record you can stroll down to the hip part of town and pick up on at Criminal Records.

Then we stopped in Gainesville to drop some records off at Wayward Council on the way back.
