"We like to play loud."
This band came to Fredonia in early August. They were on tour, had a gig fall through elsewhere and thanks to the magic of technology, were able to set up a last minute show at LGHQ, a local house that used to host shows.
The photo is from the end of their set. They were quite a sight to see live. I had never heard of them before and was impressed. Snowing completely tore up the living room with a high energy performance. The singer from Glocca Morra, another band who was on tour with them, helped out with the vocals on every song. Sometimes this meant holding the microphone stand and other times it was singing along. As a whole, it was nuts. Both guys laid on the floor without moving for probably a little too long after the last song. There might have even been some wrestling antics that went down prior to the collapse.
Incidentally, this was the last show at the house known as LGHQ. Most of the Fredonia band Longitude lived there from 2008 to 2010 and it acquired the name Longitude Global Headquarters. Since LGHQ was directly located behind several bars, noise was never a problem and shows could happen without the fear of being busted. Some of the many bands to play the living room included Mock Orange, Maps & Atlases, Loose Lips Sink Ships, Sleeping In The Aviary and the Failures' Union.
Notes: Snowing are from Philadelphia and contain former members of Street Smart Cyclist and Boy Problems. The band was started in 2008. They are working on a new album and have songs available on their websites to check out.
They win an award for having a song called "Methuselah Rookie Card." Why? For the sheer absurdity and obscurity of this particular Simpson's reference.
