Hmmm...I think the show I'm thinking of was a fest in NC, and there was a rumor they were the surprise band but it didnt happen. Anyway, fuzzy memory haha...the only fest I remember clearly was Jim Grimes in '02.
i hear you, the rest of that weekend is a total blur now that I think about it. the only reason I remember it vividly is because all of my friends I was with went to go see Underoath's set instead of Prayer For Cleansing and I still think they're total clowns for that.
actually, I have a few memories of that particular fest. the event mentioned above, sleeping in the parking lot of the venue all 3 nights (6-8 people crammed in a station wagon), getting hit in the back with a pigs head during The Bad Luck 13 Riot Extravaganza, and talking/drinking/making out with a girl from Australia. so pretty much, best fest ever haha.
ahhh youth, how I miss you.
