Next Show: Balance & Composure @ NY
Defeater, Touche Amore, Code Orange Kids, Birds in Row, and Night Sins at Manville Elks Lodge in Hillsborough, NJ, on April 20, 2012.
This almost didn't happen (thanks, New Brunswick Police Department), but it was moved at the last minute to a pretty legendary NJ hall.
Defeater was definitely the strongest performance of the night, but Touche Amore was great, as well. Code Orange Kids were solid, and Birds in Row were great (fairly surprised I'd get to see them ever, nevermind twice in a month on different bills). Night Sins.. not sure why they were added, but think Joy Division meets Danzig?
Jeremy tossed in a bit of Jawbreaker ("Accident Prone") on "Adieux". A few songs into the set, the microphones were shot (if you saw the stage, you'd understand) so it was suggested to him to perform "Jeromes Dream-style", haha.
