Almost a year ago, I had ventured out to see Face To Face in Buffalo. What started off as a show that I had to drag myself out of the house to see, ended up being a special night. It was sort of a wake-up call. I’m not getting any younger, and neither are these bands that shaped my life. That night, I told myself that I wouldn’t miss any future nostalgic shows. Once again, the time has come. The 25th Anniversary show for the legendary hardcore band Snapcase. The show will take place at The Town Ballroom w/Endpoint, Grade, and “Special Guest.”
As soon as I saw this advertised, I grabbed my ticket. This is going to be awesome. Or is it? I actually have no idea. It could actually be horrendous. This is going to be way different then the Face To Face show. When Snapcase played in their prime, what made them was the energy. The crowd went ballistic. With most of their original fans being middle aged men, I’m guessing there won’t be some weird old mosh pit forming in front of that stage. Hopefully some youth will be venturing out to see this as well, so that it’s not just a sea of dads standing around, staring at the stage.
I’ll definitely have a followup after the show with some pictures.
