Ottobar – Baltimore, MD

October 4th, 2006

Paper Dragons – One of the great locals at the time, they had a killer set, this band is so great and they showed every reason why that is true that night.
Toys That Kill – I’d never seen Toys That Kill before; I’d always been a big F.Y.P. fan but hadn’t had a chance to check out TTK yet. They were pretty fucking great, it was one of the best new bands that I’d seen in a long time, immediately purchased an album after the set.
Hard-Ons – I have two regrets from this night, one was just not being quite as into the hard-ons as I am now. I liked them at the time but not as much as I do now. And two was not buying a Hard-Ons shirt, that’s a life regret. As far as the set, you’d think being on a pop punk show they’d come up and play a bunch of pop punk songs. Nope, they came up, took their shirts off and rammed through a set consisting of almost entirely thrash songs. It was pretty incredible; most of the crowd had no idea what to even make of what they were seeing on stage. The only thing that was a bit much was the twelve minute version of ‘Suck n Swallow’ that went on for too long. Besides that it was simply incredible.
Queers – This is still maybe the best time I’ve ever seen The Queers. They brought it like nothing else. The set was super amazingly fun; they even played their MTX cover. It was Todd’s (from Toys That Kill) birthday, they had him come up and sing Kicked Out of the Webelos and gave him cake.
