I got sick as hell for a few weeks and hardly went out around that time. One exception was a show on the 13th that I had been looking forward to for quite some time. I’ll admit to being lame and I was not actually familiar with the band from Finland. I had seen their name before because it is proudly displayed on the front of a <em>MRR</em> that lives in my bathroom. Anywho, I had managed to see Acid Reflux a town over about 3/4 of a year ago and was really excited about seeing them again. I really like bands with little to no Internet presence. So on to the actual show… It was a bit cold, so I was bundled up.</p> <p>[caption id="attachment_5314" align="alignleft" width="259" caption="Kakka-Hätä 77 (photo by Will Butler)"]<a href=""><img class="size-medium wp-image-5314" title="Butler-Kakka_Hata_77-2-crop" src="" alt="" width="259" height="354" /></a>[/caption]</p> <p style="text-align: left;"><strong>KAKKA-HÄTÄ 77</strong> played a solid set. Very clean and snotty punk, people were getting into it, and I was having fun and taking pictures with my ADHD-addled brain. Next up was <strong>ACID REFLUX</strong>. Upon talking to them later, this was their last tour as a band! So this was my second and last time to see them play. Everyone raged extraordinarily hard for them and I was pretty surprised at the number of people who knew their lyrics and were shouting along. Ira, who booked the show and put it on at his house, was going insanely nuts the entire time and I couldn’t help but laugh at the faces he was making. Sparklers were affixed to their guitar while playing for some reason, they must have stopped through South of the Border or something. After Acid Reflux played, the place emptied out unfortunately before the last band. I think reason being the fact that they were supposed to be a surprise band and all the bigger bands had played.</p> <p style="text-align: left;">So next and last up was <strong>BURMA</strong>. They are a group of younger kids who were X’ed up and seem to play a sort of hybrid Converge/Infest style. The mic got decimated during the Acid Reflux set so Matt just ran around stomping and screaming as loud as he could. He somehow punched his own face so hard he was bleeding at the end of their set. Drumming was on point. The night concluded with Acid Reflux running around shooting off fireworks and I think they all antiqued each other with face-fulls of confectionery sugar. All I was thinking at this point of the night was that I had to get out of here before I had to put up a rowdy band at my house, and that I actually had a really great night full of some varying styles of music. <em>Distort Raleigh!</em></p> <p style="text-align: right;">—Will Butler / Fastcore Photos</p> <p>[caption id="attachment_5292" align="alignnone" width="435" caption="Burma (photo by Will Butler)"]<a href=""><img class="size-large wp-image-5292" title="Butler_Burma_1" src="" alt="" width="435" height="291" /></a>[/caption]</p> <p>[caption id="attachment_5295" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Acid Reflux (photo by Will Butler)"]<a href=""><img class="size-medium wp-image-5295" title="Butler-Acid_Reflux-1" src="" alt="" width="300" height="447" /></a>[/caption]</p> <p><strong><em>Even more photos from the show!</em></strong><br /> (click to enlarge)</p> <p>[gallery link="file" order="DESC" orderby="rand" exclude="5292, 5314, 5301, 5295, 5286, 5299"]</p> " data-medium-file="" data-large-file="" src="" alt="" title="Kromosom" width="435" height="289" class="alignnone size-large wp-image-5540" />
