THE WORLD THAT SUMMER
Years of searching for a local punk/hardcore/screamo/emoviolence/whatever band to join or start finally culminated in the first show that THE WORLD THAT SUMMER played on Thursday October 22nd, the band for which I scream. We play a strange concoction of punk, screamo, metallic hardcore and post-hardcore that I know is influenced by bands such as Amber, Loma Prieta, Via Fondo, Old Soul, Young Mountain, Circle Takes The Square and La Quiete. I think a less heavy but faster version of Amber is most apt, but when Jesse sings I definitely hear more of an early Alexisonfire vibe. We were insanely lucky to be asked to play a local show with KEN MODE and LIFE IN VACUUM to which I responded with, "holy shit". We were asked to find another band to hop on the show so I contacted my good friends in WORST GIFT and voila, a stupidly good first show. So below is our closer called "The Standard Gravity of Impending Doom" and the entire rest of our set is linked here.
LIFE IN VACUUM
GARRETT JAMIESONI didn't get a video, but I caught about 15 minutes of Garrett Jamieson's comedy set and was impressed. His ability to weave a story and distract drunk men away from potential fights were definitely memorable. Be sure to check him out.
