Shirt: Murder City Devils - Black Skull
Brand: Fruit Of The Loom Best
Source: Ironically the first time I saw Murder City Devils and got this shirt was in either 1999 or 2000. It was also the first time i ever saw NY. I walked miles to go see the empire state building (cause it looked close), only to get up close after hours of walking i get there and by there i mean the chrysler building.
It was that kind of vacation. lots of excessive drinking and labels were doing amazing show cases. Like Jade Tree when they had Joan Of Arc, Jets To Brazil, Promise Ring, and someone else i forgot…maybe Denali? And this Sub Pop showcase @ the Wetlands check out this line up.

It was seriously packed in that place, it felt electric. like you knew some shit was going to go down. It was as if this was the movie the Warriors and all these bands brought their own kind of weaponry to destroy the night and your ear drums. Everyone was wearing black in predation for this royal rumble that was about to take place. and take place it did.
After the show got out i had 2 things bothering me. one: lack of hearing, should have worn ear-plugs, that was just dumb. the other, was the many drinks in my stomach that i had that was floating around in there with out their best friend food. but alas! what do i spot, one of those notorious hot dog trucks you always see on Episodes of Law & Order. street meat. and being the lover of hot dogs, i needed to embark on that pork patty. and i did, and it was delicious. the first and only one i have ever eaten.
Was the show great? i think so i cant really remember all that much, but i stayed the entire time so it must have been what i remember most about that night is this Shirt and that Hot Dog.
