    I'll be seeing these guys in concert in a few weeks. Ive already seen them once before (when they opened for Billy Talent). I discovered them at that concert and have been a fan since. Who else likes this band? Opening for them are Silverstein and Comeback Kid. Ive heard comeback kid on "The Punk Show" but ive never heard of Silverstein. Anyways, this is a great band and i suggest checking out a few of their tunes.

    I have seen them a few times. I hung out with them at a small show they played with the distillers.

    And Silverstein is a scream/hardcore band, semi well known

    Yeah I also some them when they played with Billy Talent in Toronto along with Moneen and Anti-Flag.

    They are a great band for sure, I have their old songs downloaded, and I have their latest cd.

    @Vagrant lucky guy!

    Moneen and Anti-Flag are two of my favorite bands.

    And actually it wasn't really luck, my friend Nathan use to book bands for locations in Cedar Rapids and Cedar Falls Iowa so I would help the venue with stuff for the bands.

    I actually drove around and got food for the guys.

    Anti-flag is a great band. I came late and only saw the last 3rd of their set but i liked 'em. especially their songs "The Press Corpse" and "War Sucks, Lets Party". I missed moneen but saw them on Much like a week later. didnt like them very much.

    Edit: Mushroom, i agree swing life away is an amazing song.

    Moneen's last CD sucks, but the one before was pretty good.

    Oh sweet!
    And I really like Moneen and Anti-Flag as well, along with Billy Talent, but I liked them before the concert.

    Well, the concert happened over a week or so ago. I went on a vacation and took a break from foruming for a while. Anywhoo, the concert was amazing!!!! Rise against killed it and CBK and Silverstein were good too. There was also another band called "Holy Roman Empire" or somethin and they were okay. pics attached from www.thezone.fm
