Big D and the Kids Table / Leftover Crack

live in Boston (2002)

live show

Leftover Crack. I love these guys. Basically they played a good mix of Choking Victim era songs, a new song, and Leftover Crack songs. Thing is, though, no Crack Rock Steady Seven songs. I was upset about that sort of. But so it goes - they play pretty much straight forward and i had to witness stza screaming first hand to actually believe such a scream was possible.

They were straight to the point. This is a band who likes Crack and Killing Cops, and they hate World Trade, and government in general. The audience was largely there to see a ska punk band (Big D) so I think LOC got a very good reaction as they play at simmilar... let's say, speeds. The last notable thing about LOC was the obligatory blink 182 fuck you. They busted out dammit! in a bridge in some song. Funny stuff.

As for big D - this was my fifth big d show. It's always been a fucking blast, I've been huge fans of them sense day 1. It might be the whole Boston thing. Where crack=leftover crack, boston=big d .... also, where killing cops=leftover crack, hating LA=big d.

These guys put on a GOOD SHOW. The energy level is insane. You couldn't even ATTEMPT to do that whole "skanking" thing. There USED to be a ska scene in boston. Don't quite know what happened to it. But regardless - they are the deffinition of tight - highly trained professionals. And it shows when they rock out.

They played a good set. A bunch of songs from the new album and 2 or 3 songs that are "new, but not on the album". They were planning on releasing "Thugs, not Hugs". but then they didn't. I only mention this because "Thugs, not Hugs" is a GREAT album name and I really wish I could get an explanation of why. Also, they are minus one of the old singers, (mark?) who used to play french horn as well.

The bands parents were there, and the singers mom even got to request the closing song. What a nice boy.

Anyway, this was a pretty rocking show despite being at AXIS which is on %(*()*#%* Lan$down street where you have to dodge the eurotrash on the way out. Fortunately though, It's only like 20 min. from my apartment via train.

I would recomend highly the new Big D album. Especially the song "Scenster" (if you hate emo. which i know you do, because i've read the comment boards.)
