Best show you've ever been to? When Wide Mouth Mason played at Summerfest or Story of the Year at Warped Tour '04 and Billy Talent at '05... Just combine those all into one show.
Worst show you've ever been to? A punk show where it was outside, and raining, and Miker and I were deemed the bouncers and when the equipment was just about going to get soaked from water falling off of a tent we had to move it quickly... all the music that day was basically screaming metal with no melody, cept for Pravda... represent!
Do you play any instruments and/or are you in a band? I play guitar with small amounts of bass and drums. On the second one... not at this moment, although I'm looking to start a band.
Recommend us one lesser-known band you think we should all listen to. CROWNED KING!
