regarding the Mike Pelone Memorial Show.

Here's the more or less final word on the Mike Pelone Memorial Show. It' s tomorrow, Sept. 4, starting at 6 p.m. at the Lansdale VFW (805 W 2nd St, Lansdale, PA 19446). The confirmed line-up is:

The Wonder Years
Rough Justice

Those who knew Mike won't have to worry about getting in. This is our scene and our show. All you fucks who just got into the Wonder Queers after The Upsides can click here to fight over the few tickets being sold. They're $25, which is a little steep, but it's for charity. And besides, it's a chance to see TWY in the smallest venue they've probably played in years. Shit, you get a chance to see them live at the very first place they ever played. And hey, feel free to hype the show on

The VFW hall is the perfect place to host this show. Mike booked so many bands there, including Paramore, Crime in Stereo, and Set Your Goals. Our band together, Emergency & I, played countless shows there. E&I's last show was there. Same for The Premier. It was a cornerstone of our little scene, and we never quite recovered after some drunk war vet started fighting kids and we lost the venue. Yeah, a handful of Doylestown locations picked up the pieces for a while, but for me, the Lansdale VFW marks a golden era for hardcore and punk, at least in my stupid, tiny life.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that we should burn it to the ground.
