xxdavidxx5:47pm: "...A place where the stange were excepted, judged by what's in side, a scene of truly open minds.."
*DISCLAIMER* This is not directed towards any one specific person in the Carolina scene, or the Carolina scene at all, just general observations on the state of hardcore today.

I don't remember how many of you remember the days when you'd go to a show in Charlotte(no matter how big or small) and everyone had an X on their hand. Everyone believed in something and a HUGE reason for that was the bands from the area and bands coming around here giving kids a reason for being at the show other than just dancing in the pit or gaining "scene points".

Now days it seems that if you don't listen to youth crew or bands that sound like they came out of the mid '80s you're not hardcore or if you're not beating the shit out of kids while listening to Terror or Throwdown you're not hardcore. Too many kids are too worried about how tough they are or the next person is or how old school they are or the next person is to really care about hardcore.

Maybe it's the fact that I was younger and more naive, but it seems like there was a day in NC where kids stopped worrying about what style of hardcore you listened to as long as you were into hardcore. I remember hearing Ten Yard Fight, Earth Crisis, Strife, and Prayer for Cleansing come up in the same conversations with mutual respect given to all the bands. No one pushed new labels, metalcore, fashioncore or what not on any of the bands as long as the bands gave you a bit more of a reason than to be seen at a show. It was a completely different(positive) energy than what seems to be around today.
People tend to be too quick to judge based on the bands and style of hardcore you listen to.

In saying this I'm looking for some kids who may see this the same way I do and want to start a band to try and bring back that energy.

xxdavidxx12:00pm: -Spook City Records has signed two new bands: First off is FOLSOM from Las Vegas (www.folsomhlc.cjb.net) and next is LET IT DIE from Detroit (ex- Black Dahlia Murder)(www.letitdie.com). You can hear MP3s at either band's site or at www.spookcityusa.com

-The limited edition BLOOD FOR BLOOD "Serenity" 12" is out and still available from the Spook City website as well as through the bigger distros (Very, Rev, and Lumberjack). There is limited colors as well as a few hand screened versions floating around.

-Repercussion has finished recording and I have the masters in my hands. We are just waiting for Kem (www.kemdesign.net) to finish up the artwork. It will supposedly be done by this friday. If that is the case, the CD will go to press on Sept 1.

xxdavidxx11:38pm: "I can still see the reasons that I opened my eyes to the scene in the first place..."
Gotta say that that line definitely holds up for tonight. With these past few shows that have happened around the Charlotte area, I can definitely say I'm proud to be part of the NC hardcore scene. Having kids get on the cell phones, drive to hotels etc. to find a place for the bands to play and the kids to go was awesome to watch! And the entire show, smiles and laughs, just good times. That's what hardcore should be about and I think that after a very very VERY long hiatus(for the most part) we're finding that again in this area of the country. It was awesome seeing everyone again tonight and just hanging out. We definitely need to start getting shit up more often, BBQs, record swaps, basketball games etc. etc.

For everyone that I used to hang out with I miss you all and wanna get back up with all of you, for everyone I met tonight hit me up, lets get together!. Call my cell 704-301-6075

hatexxxedge12:48am: Alright.. show:

Saturday, August 21, Stateline Skatepark, Fort Mill, SC.
- xNever Againx
- xTimeoutx
- Kids Like Us/Instilled are extending their tour by one day to play this show. They've yet to confirm, but I'll be talking with Lars tomorrow to work out the details. He's already told me that they want on so they've pretty much said yes.

Also, Rachel will be in contact with the DTN/Murder Weapon guys about getting them on the show, so hopefully that'll work out. There will also be a couple other local bands opening this show... it's sure to be amazing, so I hope to see a turnout similar to the one at the Cast Aside/Warriors show.

Get at me on AIM (str8Xh8) if you've got any questions, or you've got a band that wants on. Thanks in advance.

xxdavidxx2:07am: What's the Point?
We've gone out of our ways to make these Carolina hardcore communities on LJ, and myspace because obviously we seem to care more than the average kid that goes to the Solid State, ETID, 18V shows at Tremont, but I look back and have to ask what the point is. All of us want to see better shows around NC and SC, all of us want to see more "true" kids coming out and more kids getting into the more old schoolish hardcore and jumping up to sing along, but we don't do anything about it. like 3 or 4 people post on any of these, very very sporadically, and even less ever dare bring any one new to shows to try and introduce them to hardcore because then (gasp) they'll be some new kids are shows and we all hate new kids at shows. But we all started somewhere right? So why not bring in new kids, let them know what it's about before they hear some fashion band on MTV and start coming around with the wrong ideas.

I guess my point is, if we're so concerned with loving hardcore and being so "true" to hardcore and what not how come we're still so cliquish to the point that we won't talk to certain people, hell even at the smallest shows there's still kids that won't even say hey to me(and me to them) because they're not one of my regular friends even though I know the person. I know it might sound sickishly posi to say, but is it so hard to at least be cordial to people at shows? is it so bad to go out of your way to meet people at shows that you didn't know before? and most importantly, is it so bad to introduce people to hardcore?

Sorry for the rant, just something I think needs to be said

We're all in this because it's our passion, so lets start to build it up instead of thinking it's only for us!
