I had seen the Chop Tops once before this when they opened for Mad
Sin, and don’t get me wrong, they were good then, but this night, they
positively tore shit up. I think when you have a lineup like
these guys, Koffin Kats and the Nekromantix on tour, it really pushes
bands to do their very best. It’s kind of a synergistic effect, where
the sum becomes far greater than the individual parts.
I’m happy to report that unlike the Mad Sin show, I didn’t lose any
memory cards this time. I rather infamously lost the disc at that show
that contained a great chunk of the Chop Tops set and virtually all of
the Koffin Kats set. I went back to Chasers the next day when they
opened, crawling around on that nasty floor looking under the stage
with a flashlight. No go.
I cried like a girl over that. Probably because I am a girl. And
Nick Feratu of The Limit Club called me to make sure I wasn’t going to,
as he put it, "kill myself."
Okay, I know I tend to take it all too seriously, but I’m not THAT bad. Not quite, anyway.
(Trust me, those who know me are laughing right now.)
