At 8 o'clock sharp on Friday evening, Aftermath arrived at Walter's on Washington for a show he had long been awaiting, but he didn't get the memo: doors at 8:00; show at 9:30. Oh well... free Lone Star!
What we thought would be a punk-ish type of concert was surprising, albeit not badly, from the get go. First, The Burden took the stage and hardcore, southern rock greeted our ears. By the second song, everyone in the crowd, even those completely unfamiliar with the band's music, were bobbing their heads. And by the finale, a small mosh pit had begun. We stayed near the bar, near the free beer, saving our energy for B L A C K I E - God knows we would need it.
