This weekend I went home with the main purpose of going to Oops the Tour! The tour consists of The Locust, Arab on Radar, The Flying Luttenbachers, Rah Brahs, and Wolf Eyes.

I'll be honest, I'm not exactly into hardcore. But, I really enjoy going to see it live. There's something about the raw energy of 16 and 17 year-olds raising their fists and bumping into each other. The nice thing about this tour is that only the two headliners were hardcore bands, which made for a nice variety of music. It also meant I was introduced to the Rah Brahs, who are amazing live. Unfortunately the recording on their album doesn't do it justice. Their vocals are raw and energetic but they seem to take a back seat on the album. It's a bummer.

So the show was great. My only regret is not seeing Lighting Bolt and Erase Errata the night before. All you dudes have said they're great and I biffed it. Well, all you other dudes shouldn't make the same mistake. The tour is just beginning, find your city and go.
