I went to the Elks Lodge in Hamden, CT about 2 weeks ago to witness Chaos Fest, another little festival-like concert with a countless number of bands.
I showed up on time, but the show did not start for about an hour or two. First band that really caught my attention was Year of Desolation
, this metallic grindcore band that actually had some good instrumentation going on.
Still, no one danced until CT hardcore youths Trauma
took the mike and did a ripping rendition of Gimme Gimme Gimme
which I found myself even busting a move to.
Next up was a band that I couldn't get in the pit for, and I greatly regret that. The band was The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza
and they completely kicked my ass musically. They put on an amazing show and everyone was really into it. I was in the back like a wuss.
During their show, however, things started to get rough. Suddenly I witnessed two men push through an audience on the sidelines of the now chaotic and, perhaps deadly, mosh pit (hahahaha). …
