These are the bands I saw today:

EMPTY GRAVE (VA)


GUILTY FACES (CT)


BRAIN HANDLE (PA) - One of the three best bands of Day 1. They don't do it for me on record but live was a different story - baseball jokes and band on band violence. The drummer of the band had the best homemade shirt ever. It read "I would rather be computing eligibility". Punk as fuck.


























This is a hand painted case that belongs to Brain Handle.





















WARKRIME (CA) - Much better to me live than recorded too - another favorite of the entire day. Sarcasm at its best.


























DIRECT CONTROL (VA) - Hometown favorites (I watched them from the floor so with me being short and all, I couldn't take a clear picture of the performance.


ANNIHILATION TIME (CA) - As seen from the back of the club.
