Coke Bust -- Pomona, CA -- June 27th, 2013

Source: me
Venue: Aladdin Jr

Here was an awesome show that I've been looking forward to for a while. I arrived at the venue at 7pm to get my hand stamp for the show and went to the bar next door for a few hours to get some amazing Belgian beers while I waited for the good bands to go on. I went back to Aladdin Jr around 9 to get ready for Holy. I have been listening to their album The Age of Collapse a bit lately and was really stoked they were playing. They are an awesome hardcore band from Italy. I think everyone should check them out. It's one of my favorite albums from this year. They played a little over 20 minutes. I was in the back of the room and was going crazy the entire time. I recognized every song played but I didn't know the names of the songs to get a setlist. It was a great set. I wanted to get a Holy shirt but I spent the last of my money on a Coke Bust shirt.

Up next was Punch. I threw my phone and wallet in my car so I could go all out for Punch. I've been waiting about 5 years for Punch to come down here. I missed out on their last show cause I didn't know about it. It was seriously like an oven in there when they were playing. It was 100 degrees outside, so a closed room packed with hardcore kids just made it hot and smelly and stinky. I was soaked in sweat as soon as they started and was going crazy the entire time. I got kicked in the head a few times and people crowd surfed, but I didn't care. After the set, the singer gave me a setlist so here it is

Stay Afloat
Don't Start
If Not Me
How Nothing
The Chase
Get Back
No Such Thing
Time Apart
Not So Posi

Up next was Coke Bust from DC. I missed their last few shows in CA and was stoked to finally see them. It seemed like half of the room left for them, which was a shame cause I was prepared for people to go even more crazy. They also played a short set. I asked the singer for a setlist after and he handed me the only one, so sorry for the inaccuracy. The thing that made me laugh was that the Coke Bust setlist was written on a Budweiser box. They are a straight edge band.

Iron Spiral
Leave Me Behind
Nothing 2*
Pain And Suffering
Red Line*
Fuck Bar Culture

*no idea, it was on the setlist
Who needs a god when you've got Big Macs?
