Stemms Cross Roads CD release show.
Stemm played the Town Ballroom to celebrate the release of their new album Cross Roads. Local band from Niagara Falls called It's A Dinosaur played, I didn't see them though. I came just as local Tennessee band DownSlave was beginning their set. Another band that played before Stemm are well known among the local metal fans in Buffalo is called His Name Was Yesterday. His Name Was Yesterday is breaking so this was their last time playing on stage. Too bad their breaking up some of the best times I have at metal shows is when His Name Was Yesterday and Stemm share the stage.

Here are the setlists.

Being from the area, I've given Stemm many, many chances and I just can't get into them. I know they're a local band, but I still can't understand why they're as popular as they are

They use to be rap metal so if you knew them in the beginning that could have turned you away. You said you have giving them many chances so I assume you have heard stuff from the past three albums? Because they did change their sound.

This shit is so underground. I bet they played at a tiny bar.

They have gotten better, I'll definitely give you that, they're just not my cup of tea. I wish there were more metal bands coming from this area, but fuck, the local scene is shot. At least more people show up at Buffalo metal shows than metal shows in Rochester. How full was the Ballroom?

I want to say there were about two hundred people there last night. There were more people there back in 2008 when I saw them for the Blood Scent CD release show than last night. Stemm and His Name Was Yesterday are two of the four local Buffalo bands that are good.
