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.

Those first two songs were good and it kind of
went downhill from there...
>Purple Knight came on. P.K. is Mark and another guy Raynald Leger. They

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".
