Show Review: Every Time I Die w/ The Acacia Strain, Vanna + MORE (Portland, OR)
Show Review: Every Time I Die w/ The Acacia Strain, Vanna + MORE (Portland, OR)
02/15/13 at 11:56 AM by Jake Denning
I trekked down to Branx, located in the industrial district in Portland, OR to see Every Time I Die's spring headliner, with support from: The Acacia Strain, Vanna, Hundredth, and No Bragging Rights.

If you're not familiar with No Bragging Rights, don't worry, so are a lot of people, especially with this type of crowd. The band initially got a flat response from the small crowd in attendance that had shown up early. But you know what, as the band made it explicitly clear with their performance that they REALLY wanted to be there, people started to warm up to them and get a bit more enthusiastic. The band has the potential to really go somewhere big, and I think they're just started to realize their identity as a band - what is more interesting is that this band...[read more]

To the whole Bills thing, they're all from Buffalo and at least the Buckley brothers are die hard Bills fans. And yeah, they're the tits live. Finally made it out to one of their holiday shows this past December and it was great. It was at a bar with a 300 capacity, but unfortunately you couldn't stage dive or go off the floor at all. That would've taken the show to another level, but it was still great. Gotta go see them live.

Just wanted to say (in regards to Hundredth), just because you're a Christian living in the US doesn't mean you're proud to be an American. I'm Catholic/Christian and live in the US but am not in any way proud to be an American citizen.

Lol, telling people to "deal with it" in regards to Neanderthal fucks swinging their fists around and nailing people there to actually watch the bands perform. You're a child, and have the exact mindset that make so many shows miserable.

"Let's Go, Buffalo" is a chant commonly heard at a Buffalo Sabres game. Buffalo being the hometown of ETID, it is also commonly chanted at their hometown shows. All us die hard fans were merely paying tribute to the band and where they reign from. No reason to even ramble on about the Seattle Shithawks, chief.

I was being facetious man. I love the band, and I know where they hail from. But who doesn't like the Seahawks? They're incredible!

I appreciate you taking the time to read though, thank you.

This is one of the main reasons why I don't go to shows anymore. Maybe I'm being an old man but I hate having to constantly be one the lookout in fear of some douchebag wailing his arms into the back of my head.

It's funny cause upside down crosses aren't even satanic; St Peter was crucified on one cause he didn't feel worthy to be hung on the same type as Jesus. And this is coming from an atheist.

When you're telling people in the pit to be a good sport, that is within the realm of reason. When you're telling people who have intentionally stayed clear of the pit to "deal with" people coming at them with balled fists and no direction, you're condoning unprovoked public violence, and that is inarguable. If your significant other came out of a show with a tooth through her lip because BR00TALXXXM0SHWARRIOR wouldn't respect the space of the people that paid the same price of admission to be there, I'm sure you'd be singing a different tune. Just because you like a band doesn't mean they're allowed to put the people who came to see them in harms way while they're safe on the stage with their mosh calls, ESPECIALLY when they are support.

You know what, I definitely appreciate hearing your perspective of things and what you see. I've never brought a date or girlfriend to a show before, so I wouldn't know what it's like to have to defend someone from someone moshing - I just break up brawls when things get too heated.

Maybe you might've misread things (or shoot, maybe I mistyped!), but I mentioned it was an upside down American flag, not a cross...although that would be weird too. I've always just had weird feelings about seeing those types of things, because I feel extremely privileged to live in America and be able to do things like go to shows extremely often, whereas people in some parts of the world don't get to have things like clean drinking water. It sort of puts things in perspective, and makes me feel a little bit like an asshole for knowing about a problem like that, and not contributing anything to help.
