i remember the first time i went to cbgb’s. suicidal tendencies headlined. i can’t remember the other bands. but walking in it was really packed. it was dark and smoky and scary and as i looked to my leftÂ and saw joey ramone and jim jarmusch sitting at a table. up to the front there were no tables, just that dance floor and lots of mohawks andÂ i think a slam dance pit had already formed. i was scared but i kept walking as the music was hitting my straight on. i got to the where the slam circle was and I saw the people at the front not slamming were picking the slammers up as the fell down. I looked around at all the “scary” punks and realized they weren’t so scary after all. they were all like me and were just there to hear the music and commune with their fellow punks. i suddenly felt part of something.
Time, I absolve myself of your vow to vanquish me.
