Opening Bands: One 4 One, Slugworth, Man’s Ruin
Venue: The Chance, Poughkeepsie, NY
This is was a special show because all the original members were going to play one last time together. The crowd was packed in the bottom of the Chance. So it was a decent size crowd.
The first band was from Danbury, Ct and they were called Man’s Ruin. They were ok. They kept making fun of all the “wiggers” in Poughkeepsie that go to HC shows. I thought that was pretty funny. The next band was from Kingston NY and they were called Sluggs Worth or something like that. They were a lot better than the first band.
After that band was One 4 One and I thought they played ok as well. I thought they would be better. Next band up was Self Decay and they played good. I like their rough style. They get the crowd dancing. Speaking of dancing, I saw this guy who was about my age, and he thought he was tough, but he had a mouthpiece on!! hahaha, that’s some funny shit!!
All Out War finally came on and they were by far the best band on the night. They started off with “Soaked In Torment.” They played other songs like “Resist,” “Burning Season,” “Claim Your Innocence” and a one they said they never played at the Chance “Enemies of Creation.” As we were leaving, I think there was fight or something. oh well, happens a lot at the Chance. The show was good, the people can’t dance there, and they don’t respect others space. The best scene for dancing that I’ve seen was at Sea Seas in Scranton. They know how to dance and respect each others room for dancin it up. Overall, a decent show.
