So! Good news everyone: A real hardcore show in Athens! Hope Con is definitely a band worth seeing live; I, for one, just can't forget their truly intense performance on the 2006 Hellfest DVD. I admit the stuff they play nowadays is darker, more complex etc , but I still count them as a straightforward, down-to-basics hardcore band. I guess it'll all be evident tomorrow during their lives how at the An Club. I'm just really and completely psyched to check good shows and music that is aggressive, full of energy , and can actually grab my attention... Just say NO to watered-down hardcore!
