AFI live at Starland


In the midst of a long national tour in support of their new record Crash Love, AFI stopped by New Jersey's Starland Ballroom this past Saturday October 10th. Right from the beginning the band displayed the chemistry that only a band that has had the same members since 1998 could. Davey and Co seemed at easy on stage allowing themselves to let go and really put on a performance. Many of the attendees seemed as if they've been to many AFI concerts, after seeing their Starland Ballroom performance I can understand why.

Their new album Crash Love, which was recorded with producer Joe Mcgrath (Green Day/Tourmaline) hit stores September 29th. You can check the video for their first single "Medicate" at Youtube.  Their tour that stretches over two month wraps up in Austin November 22nd.  You can view all the upcoming date at Myspace. The group then heads to Canada in December and oversees in 2010.

Gallows (Photos by Luke Brereton) 


The English hardcore/punk group Gallows made their return to Jersey after just having played here twice in July with Warped Tour and at Death City (New Brunswick). The band is known for their over the top live performances and this performance was no different. Their was plenty of jumping, rolling, shit talking and at one point singer Frank Carter made his way to the bar via crowd surfing. Gallows play a unique blend of punk and hardcore that separate them from the over imitated genre. To see what I mean, check out the MP3 below. Coverage of their prior NJ show at Death City here.

I heard nothing for Gallows playing @ The Meatlocker. Could you imagine how much they would have wanted and how much the admission would be?
