Music....and the Weekend

alright, so my TJ McCloud CD finally came in...I had to wait all weekend......torture....anyway, i got it here at work so i haven't got to pay attention to it much, but what i did hear was good stuff......it was a good change from what i experienced this weekend....I rarely go to concerts...and the only ones i have been to are caedmons call, jars of clay, and maybe a couple others....Those are good bands to see...This weekend, i got to see Stavesacre at The Door in Deep Ellum...The Door is the Christian club and Stavesacre is a Christian band out of southern California. They were pretty good but a little harder than i prefer....Stavesacre wasn't the problem, it was the opening bands...It's funny..my dad would say Stavesacre is a bunch of people yelling and screaming and make no sense at all, but I say they are just loud....but the opening bands were those i would say just yell and scream in the microphone.....literally, that's what they did..supposedly they were screaming words but i didn't hear any....I thought i knew what hardcore music was, but i was mistaken.......now, i know that those hardcore bands reach out to those few hardcore people....it is possible that they are a good ministry, but geeze...it's hard for even me to understand that stuff.....and i'm not that old.....it was a bunch of behemothic sounding screaming and the guitarists almost hurting themselves while they spaz on the stage.....i was sure some singer was gonna get whacked by the kneck of a guitar being throwed around.....anywho, like i said, the main band was pretty good.....even the last hardcore opening band was someone musical......my ears were still ringing untill about noon on Sunday....well, that was my weekend......oh...i did go bikriding around whiterock lake...very fun..okay...i'm done

but they aren't hardcore yellers. You can understand exactly what song they are singing. It helps that the songs are only covers.

I enjoy a little hardcore and I have to say, if you either, a)listen to it several times, or b) read the lyrics you can hear the words. And Jerm, Me First are punk not Hardcore. But good none-the-less!

Oh you boys...have to be told by the girls. Me first and the Gimme Gimmes are not hardcore or punk. they are more Emo, and not even that. they are sort of just on their own. Get with the program guys!! Gosh!! :o)
