Nostalgia Post #2: Hot Water Music @ Wayne Firehouse - Nov. 10, 2000

Hot Water Music punk band

Back in November of 2000 the Wayne Firehouse was in its prime. Jimmy Eat World had just stopped by to play an unannounced show, which in many ways was an acknowledgment to what the DIY NJ scene was doing at the time. Hot Water Music was a few years strong and 3 LP's and a split deep, meaning they had already had some of their best material out when they performed this intimate show.

Hot Water Music was a band that was plagued with multiple break ups, where each time they regrouped a new era was created. This video shows an era where Hot Water Music played honest, in your face punk music in one of the most DIY settings possible. For a glimpse into the past, watch Hot Water Music rock Wayne Firehouse to their full potential below.

God, the bomb shelter shows were the best days of my life. Can't believe the prime shows were over ten years ago! ATDI, TGUK, Atom/Pacakge, Nada Surf.

Anyone hit up the Movielife/Impossibles/Atom & his Package. God, what a great time
