Anyone have an extra Shellac ticket? I have an extra Gorilla Biscuits (+ cash).

Wish I could see the Cramps without having to go to MoFo. I was undecided, but now I just rather see the Japanese festival. Lux + Ivy, please come back at a better venue.

I've heard a lot of rumors including Sick of It All. Their MySpace just says "one last time......Gorilla Biscuits w/ special guests 3pm Matinee 4pm show"

the bridge 9 board suggests it's: SOIA, Bane, Bold, Project X (or some version of them), Beyond and Gorilla Biscuits. this show may have also been subject to a 1988 time warp.

HR from Bad Brains
Gorilla Biscuits

plus John Porcelly (Bold, Projext X, Youth of Today) and Toby Morse (H20) each played one song with GB.

HR played 3 reggae songs for those wondering.

Bane opened the whole GB tour.

best show ever (the Gorilla Biscuits part). pics later.

Porcell did "Straight Edge Revenge" and Toby and Civ did Warzone's "As One."

HR did "Leaving Babylon," the Beatles' "Day Tripper" and some other song. It was cool and unexpected. The crowd went crazy for him.

Civ gave a shout out to DMS at some point during the show. I went home sweaty.

Gang Gang Dance at teh Pool Party was probably the worst band i've ever heard.

I agree with BV - the Gorilla Biscuits show was great. It would be really nice if they stay together and continue to tour.

I just got pictures from the show up on my website BrooklynRocks ( and Flickr (

Gang Gang Dance were really good at the Pool Party. I've seen them a LOT and they never disappoint.

The Gorilla Biscuits show was insane! Shows like that are why CBGB will be missed! HR coming out blew everyone's head! What an amazing show!
