Glide Review - Cro-Mags, Screaming Females etc. Live House of Vans 7-29-11

 Got a new review up on Glide today.

You can read it Right C'here!!!!

It is of the House of Vans live show on 7-29-11 at which the Cro-Mags, Fucked Up, Screaming Females & Pissed Jeans all played.  I mentioned this before but the 2 bands I was really there for were the CM's and SF's.

I think you would be hard pressed to find someone who didn't agree that they were the highlights, in the order they played of course.

Then again the NY Times seems to put much more stock in Fucked Up then I did...oh well to each there own...Pretty cool the Times covered the event in the first place... 
Besides those two blistering sets I will always remember this show for the rain downpours, the vomit in the VIP section and the oppressive heat trapped in the venue.  It was a steam room in the House of Vans and while the sound kinda sucked in the back the energy was all over the place.  Even Fucked Up, who I can't get into, was giving it there all or at least their front-man was...

The Females did what they always do, impressed the hell out of me and make me want to go on tour with the band...they are phenomenal and I can't say enough good things about them.  Knowing their crowd they decided to play the opposite of a festival set and dove into their raw older tracks, I heard people commenting how much they dug it and had never seen them before.
I got a few videos that I found online, (the images were borrowed from Impose Magazine btw) I was in no shape to film or take pics, but I enjoyed the hell out of myself and had a blast bumping into old friends from the NYHC scene.  The first one gives you a good hunk of the Cro-Mags set that kicked mega ass, so enjoy:
Cro-Mag's: "World Peace" "Show No Mercy" "Malfunction" "Right Brigade" "It's The Limit" "Don't Tread On Me"  "Hard Times"
