The Aftermath at the Electric Maid. I skipped my senior prom to be at that show, and it was totally worth it. DANG is that a lot of males; where da females at? Oh, hardcore: how I love and hate thee.
Witch Hunt a few years ago at Alfishawy Cafe. “The People’s Media Center at Alfishawy Cafe” was an Internet cafe on Georgia Avenue near the Petworth subway stop which used to be a notorious strip club and then became much, much weirder. So many shows used to happen there, featuring so many speeches by the owner/manager (or whatever she was) who would try and plug different events, causes, etc. and get you to do stuff for her. Up the female-fronted hardcore!
Bracewar (pretty sure?) at the Corpse Fortress, 2 or 3 years ago. Maybe that was the show Anton Rough played for three minutes; my memory is not so hot.
This is a friend of mine from high school who has the most beautiful smile I have ever seen.
A friend from high school and I used to go to Eastern Market most weekends and grab some treats (before I went vegan and learned that most bakeries don’t offer vegan treats). This is from a stand that sells hand-made dolls (still sells ’em, too).
