The argument has been leveled against Kevin Seconds and his band of merry men is that 7 Seconds should hang it up. These people would argue that the heyday of 7 Seconds1 is over and that Mr. Seconds and Co. should pass the proverbial torch, and gracefully bow out of the hardcore scene. Their perform.
The argument has been leveled against Kevin Seconds and his band of merry men is that 7 Seconds should hang it up. These people would argue that the heyday of 7 Seconds1 is over and that Mr. Seconds and Co. should pass the proverbial torch, and gracefully bow out of the hardcore scene. Their performance at the Metro with Voice In The Wire and labelmates the Briggs blasts those fuckers out of the water.
Kevin took some time out to talk about "how hardcore changes every week" and how grateful the group is that people still come out after the group's last Chicago show five years ago. Steve Youth railed away on his bass, playing with the speed and skill of people half his age, though his last name is quickly becoming a bit of a misnomer3. Speedy, old-school hardcore was the order of the night, and 7 Seconds proved they can still serve it up better than just about everyone else.
At the end of the show a small fight broke out, which Kevin hoped "didn't happen anymore‚?¶we're uber-sensitive about it," as well as defending Matt Skiba from the heckling punx in the pit.
Their set list included, but was not limited to (I did not catch their opener, and missed a couple other songs, so if you do know the songs played, please help me):
