  1. Next coaster: It's a lesser-known Canadian coaster Has a terrain-based layout It's the only coaster in the park
  2. Will Pemble’s Goal Boss Coaster (although it’s almost always just referred to as “backyard roller coaster”).
  3. ^A lot of American top spins run lame programs, but The Crypt was running with 8 flips when I rode it! Some carnival top spins in Europe run cycles where you get like 20 flips in a row, while most top spins at parks are operated like glorified ferris wheels.
  4. I LOVE Turnstile and I can’t wait to see them this weekend. I saw the schedule for the festival you’re talking about and noticed that Queens of the Stone Age and Baroness played at the same time. I think you made the right choice seeing QOTSA, but that would have been a painful decision for me to make.
  5. I went to 3 concerts in the past 3 weeks, so there’s a lot to report. Kill Your Idols, Fireburn, Violent Society, Berthold City, and Please Die! at Underground Arts: Please Die! is a Philly hardcore punk band reminiscent of bands like Negative Approach, Negative FX, Agnostic Front, etc, and they’re always great. Berthold City is a new straight edge hardcore band, and they already have some great anthemic songs, and they perform with tons of energy. Violent society is an old street punk-type band. I wasn’t very familiar with them but they were good. Kill Your Idols is probably best described as a melodic hardcore/punk band and they were the main act. Fireburn is a hardcore punk/reggae supergroup with Todd Youth (AMAZING bassist from a bunch of NYHC bands) and Israel Joseph I (AWESOME vocalist who sang for the Bad Brains for a short time), and they were the band I wanted to see the most. They were fantastic. There’s a lot of Bad Brains influence obviously, but at points they remind me of NoMeansNo (mainly due to Youth’s style of bass playing) and the reggae songs reminded me more of the UK Subhumans and Citizen Fish than Bad Brains. Ty Segall and the Freedom Band and Long Hots at the Trocadero: Long Hots are a garage rock/post punk-ish band, and they were decent. Ty Segall played one of the best performances I have ever seen. Everyone should know who he is, but if you don’t, he plays psychedelic rock/noise rock. The Freedom Band is his backing band for this tour/new album (which is great BTW). He played a lot of new stuff but also played some songs from Emotional Mugger and some older albums. Ty and the other guitarist in his band are really excellent and there were tons of fantastic solos. The set was also pretty long. Jeff Rosenstock, Martha, and Bad Moves at Union Transfer: A singer/songwriter guy played first, but I didn’t know who he was. Bad Moves, and especially Martha, were really solid pop punk bands and they put on great performances. Jeff Rosenstock is THE pop punk/punk rock/emo/ska punk/whatever god. His band played almost every song from Post and Worry, but didn’t neglect the older stuff either. We were all singing as loud as we could, the crowd was super energetic, Jeff and the rest of the band were giving it their all, and it was truly a magical performance. I was never so emotional at a concert, and it was one of the best things I ever saw/heard. Also they walked onstage to this, which was absolutely hilarious since I already knew this meme but wasn’t expecting it at all:
  6. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wza8Z3aUwsQ Most of this guy's music sounds a lot like Shellac and Primus, but this song RAGES!
  7. I would have gotten tickets for the date in Philly tomorrow, but I'm going to be with my family on Easter and it's already sold out anyway. Knocked Loose is pretty cool, but Jesus Piece is a band I REALLY want to see live, and I've heard great things about Terror. It's good to hear they all put on a great show.
  8. We Don't Want The Last Laugh DOMINANT FORCE Keep an eye on this band, they're like the Cro-Mags and Anti Cimex combined, but darker. Some of the best hardcore/crossover thrash of this decade.
  9. I saw IDLES at PhilaMOCA (Philadelphia Mausoleum of Contemporary Art) last Sunday. Dark Blue was the opener, and they're a fantastic local post-punk/jangle pop type band. IDLES played with a ridiculous amount of energy and it was incredible to witness them in such a small venue. They played perfectly, the guitarists were jumping into the crowd, it was totally crazy, and it was hands down one of the best shows I have ever been to. The audience was also totally awesome. At the end of the night I was completely drenched in sweat and my voice was destroyed. Markit aneight filmed the whole show and uploaded it, and I urge everyone to at least check out IDLES playing . The same channel uploaded the Dark Blue set as well.
  10. Top 10 albums: 1. NoMeansNo - Wrong (Easily the best album ever. I'd specifically recommend this to ImOnABoat.

Melvins - Bullhead (Lysol, Gluey Porch Treatments, and Houdini are also favorites) 4.

  11. Awesome! Thee Oh Sees are at the top of my bucket list for bands I want to see live. Right now I'm listening to Don't Let Me See It by Raw Power.
