UC LOUNGE 9/10/2010
The show with 4 other groups started off slow with a bar rock band and some guy overdosing on his pedals...we went on third and all of a sudden the place was hopping...it seemed that a crowd materialised out of nowhere and the reception we recieved was unbelievable...IDLE WIRE and THE BIG DEATH SCENE rocked the house as well... even with first show jitters it worked great...cheers
