The show was at the Blvd in Boyle Heights, my favorite venue of all time. The line up was Extortion, Lack of Interest, Graf Orlock, Animalitos and Low Places. I was bummed out because Low Threat Profile were originally suppose to play this show but they took an indefinite break.

Low Places was the first band to play. I downloaded their ep a while back and enjoy listening to it. I don't know their music too well just cause I rarely listen to them. They were awesome live, except for the extended chuga chuga parts. Animlitos were up next. I thought they were decent live. I have never heard them before and they aren't a band I would go out of my way to download their music. Graf Orlock was up next and they destroyed it! They did their usual set up in front of the stage. I don't remember what they played.

Lack of Interest was up next. I've seen these guys soo many times and they always sound great! I was really surprised when I saw they had some setlists on the ground cause they usually play the same songs at every show.

Extortion went on at 1040 and played fo 25 minutes. It was an intense 25 minutes!! They are definitely a must see band. It was almost as violent as the Wormrot show I saw there in March. I can't wait to see these guys again. They played an encore but I don't have the song title for it cause it was an addition to the setlist.

Beginning of End
Curl Up and Die
The Audience
Life Under Lies
Curb Crawler
Mountain of Sit
Worthles Life
Pull the Pin

Overall, a sick ass show!!!
