The first band, Aisle, was from Canada. They were pretty decent but not my style really. They seemed a bit perturbed about playing first as well.
Next was one of my local favorites, Mercenary! I even filmed a video with my new camera. This may have been the best performance I have seen from them. They get tighter each time I see them.
Third was Nerv. Nerv was from Iowa and the singer was a really nice guy. Growing up in Maine I can sympathize with being from a small scene. They were impressively good, loads of fun to watch. I wish they had played a little longer but I think time was a little constrained due to a late start.
Last, The Hoax! They were incredible. I really like the anger and nihilism that they manifest. It is a nice release for me. Hoax is known to be a little dangerous live but this set was pretty tame. All in all, it was a great show.
