The Union Transfer venue

On march 13 2013 at exactly 7:22 pm, I arrived at 12th and spring garden to see the bands EverytimeIdie and my personal favorite, The Acacia Strain at this relatively new venue. Once a Italian restaurant and bar, the union transfer was a wonderful venue with great atmosphere and wonderful sound quality as well as no guard rails near the stage (which allowed for better crowd precipitation)

This Was an amazing experience. Security was present however was not needed due to the fact that the fans made sure no fights broke out and the injured were taken care of. The sound quality was wonderful, with every cord strung you could feel it vibrate through your body.

Once the opening bands went off stage things really picked up when the co headliner (TAS) started their set. Once directed from the band to stage dive, people began rushing the stage and jumping into the sea of people hoping to be caught by their fellow show goers.

A great venue and as of recent, my favorite venue


While this video is made for fun and laughs it is almost a allegory for where pop music has been heading since the late 90s….. In the direction of the dog shit pile.

Mr Cage sums up all of my feelings in this video between tailor swifts sonnet as almost begging for it to stop. While i am a avid metal/ hardcore/punk fan do not think this is bias, i listen to a well rounded array of music including pop, folk and old school hip hop. But i can find no pleasure in today’s pop, rap and alternative music scene due to the fact that the majority of the music doesn’t appeal to me.

I do however think Miss Swift is a great looking woman with an outstanding voice, but she should stick to acoustic as opposed to trying to write pop. Hopefully this talented songwriter will stray away from writing these catchy teenie bopper songs as she gets older.

For the most part music videos are taken way too seriously. Bands go out of their way to look “cool” or “edgy”, when it comes to these guys, that is not the case. As you can tell, the video is pretty much them acting like pedophiles and getting caught and put in jail.

Though the lyrics are full of hate and disgust for the types of human beings that take part in these disgusting acts, they have fun with the subject in the video. If you notice at certain parts in this selected video, they take situations that were actually shown on the NBCS’ show “To Catch A Predator” and use it to entertain their fans.

Its a shame more bands don’t do this kind of stuff with music videos. When it comes to sound and lyrics, the proof is in the pudding so to speak. These guys are bad-asses and don’t need a video to show how cool, edgy, or tough they are like a lot of other cookie cutter bands out nowadays.
