ok so i was walking out of @babylonnightclub after seeing @emmurecult @unearthofficial & @impendingdoom and a couple other bands. then this dude from one of the merch tables hands me a folded piece of paper. IT WAS THIS POSTER! i was at this show! #coryb was totally there. it was @mavericksbar! it was one of my first shows and definitely corys first and he was the one with the car. we were just 16/17 years old. it was the night when the singer @john_b_henry from @darkest_hour_official twisted his ankle and ended up being "assisted" by the bar with some house remedies. was exposed to #Cursed for the first time. bought a tshirt and gave it away to #SeanyNapalm when we were at #170BCraigHenry. i remember that night as being the first time i had a dilemma about buying music legally & purchasing it legally. i told myself, "well, i already bought a wicked Cursed tshirt. i only have 40 bucks left and tshirts are 20 and CDs are 10 and that gives us 10 bucks for gas to get back to the country intime for school tomorrow." cory was just in it for the adventure. he got a kick out of how ridiculous metalheads were. i remember Mike (guitarist of #darkesthour) called for a circle fit and no one really started one up. he replied with, "i dunno if you guys are french or what but a circle pit needs a lead man. he's usually the biggest guy in the room." some BIG FUCKER raises his hand. "OK! HIM! THAT GUY! HE'S THE LEAD GUY. NOW WHEN THIS SONG KICKS IN, I WANT YOU TO FOLLOW HIM. GOT IT?!" it worked. i was all up in it. this is when mavericks had a chandelier i think. i ended up buying #hiddenhandsofasadistnation by #darkesthour that night. had to. Darkest Hour returned to Mavericks not TOO long ago and it was amazing.
