Cleveland rocks out to 40 BANDS 80 MINUTES!, Prole Art Threat, Tony Erba & Clan Of The Cave Bear!!!

Holy Shit! I just had an amazing time in my old hometown, Cleveland, Ohio.

Just this last Thursday, March 2nd, I screened 40 BANDS 80 MINUTES! at Parish Hall there. Clan Of The Cave Bear, Tony Erba, and Proletarian Art Threat provided the musical entertainment.

The place was packed!

It was overwhelming to see and talk to so many old friends. So much so that I neglected to take as many photos as I could have/should have. It was a series of magical moments, and that’s hard to document.

In any event, know that this event was a HUGE success in large part because of the massive effort of Stephe DK. (I added his link to SeanCarnage.com so check it out—he has photos and his story of the night.)

So many Clevelanders told me how inspired they felt after the movie. We have a great thing going here in L.A., and on Thursday night, Cleveland was cheering us on.

I must admit that I’m a bit emotional today. It was hard to leave again :(

I want to write about my whole Cleveland experience, but, for now, here are select pictures from the show. I am gonna put up some Tony Erba VIDEO (!!!) very soon. Watch for that and a photo log of the rest of my trip in a few days.

CLEVELAND ROCKS!!!!
