took a short roadtrip to cleveland this week to see pierced arrows play at the beachland tavern. the more than two hour ride wasn't nearly as annoying as it usually could be, although i didn't have to drive so that part was really awesome. upon arriving, we were met with two unexpected carloads of friends from pittsburgh, and shortly thereafter, another carload from columbus. the sad part was, that together, our formed voltron of rock-hungry punks outnumbered the locals present for the show. it didn't matter though, after anxiously waiting through two opening bands, pierced arrows still played with the ferocity and fervor of a packed ampitheater. i was seriously floored by the performance. i couldn't help but even be somewhat intimidated knowing the long rock legacy of toody and fred cole, despite how amazingly humble and personable these souls completely are. for more info on said legacy, check out the unknown passage: the dead moon story DVD. i picked one up after the show, and can't wait to crack into it.
