PostSubject: American Nightmare/Give Up The Ghost reunion   Sun Jun 09, 2013 1:29 pm

Just got back from Chicago last night, where we went to see the American Nightmare reunion on 6/6 at the Metro. Now, I felt a little selfish going as everyone I went with had never seen them before and this was my 4th or 5th time getting to see them. I wound up with only a shiner and bruises on my body, which I was expecting worse, but it was definitely one of the wildest shows I've been to. They actually removed the barricade for this show, so people were constantly stage diving and headwalking (and at a sold out show at the metro, that can get pretty insane)

Did anyone else get to see them, or last nights show in Toronto? The Chicago show was probably one of my favorite shows I've ever been to.

So bummed I missed this. Looks like I'm also going to miss the modern life is war set at This is Hardcore. Touring during the summer always means missing awesome shit. Glad you got to see it. Are there videos up anywhere.

This was a huge reunion show for a band that was beloved by tons of people. Thought it warranted it's own thread.

It was really something, man. I've heard some rumors about MLIW potentially coming through our area aside from This Is Hardcore, so you may not be out of luck.

As far as videos go... take a look at the madness:

Wasn't ignoring anything. Was just posting about a show that just happened days ago, was a rather big deal, and was potentially attended by other people in the area. I certainly wasn't trying to hi-jack the idea of the "favorite shows" thread, and definitely didn't think this would be some sort of controversy. Ease up, fellas. I posted this because its about something current and isn't the same as the "post about your favorite shows" thread (which I was and still am planning on posting in at some point soon)

I was there! Stood on the sidelines most of the time and watched the madness before taking off my grandpa suit and joining in the fun. Did a little dive, did a little mosh, sang some songs, and had a blast. Reminded me of my youth, but I'm definitely still sore.

It would have been cool to see you, JV.

I wasn't going to buy any merch, but I was definitely astonished at their lack of choice in tee shirts and that there was no music to buy whatsoever.

Coliseum were cool, and that first band was boring.
