	I think the new songs were all from the upcoming "Smart Bomb"
	murderecords EP.  There *was* one other thing wrong about the
	set -- it was TOO LOUD.  I think people *really* liked the 
	music but just couldn't get near the stage for the noise -- 
	that was the only reason they didn't get a mosh going.

	HP were really good -- they did the two songs from "Hack"
	that they don't usually play:  "If Things Work Out" and
	"I Know You Didn't Want To".  And the volume level was loud
	but not too loud so people could get close to the stage; and
	the ensuing mosh was mostly civilized.

>On SAturday night, Eric's Trip and Friends played. There were three openers

	Those first two songs were good and it kind of 
	went downhill from there...

>After Trip
>Purple Knight came on. P.K. is Mark and another guy Raynald Leger. They

>E.T. Supposivly P.K. was formed in 1974 by Mark. They are a punk band that

	That was Sebastian Lippa -- lead singer of Hardship Post.

	My favorite part of the PK set was their cover of 
	"Bad Fun" by The Cult.  :-)

	It *was* a good set... one of the best I've seen as well.
	I'm still not tired of hearing "Smother".
