I booked my first show on February 20 in the years 2000 amidst my one failed year at UC Santa Cruz without any clue what I was doing.  I had some help from the local kids but my overhead to not lose money was $1,200 and Death By Stereo had bailed last minute.  The Nerve Agents showed up to headline and, despite breaking the mic cord on the first song, delivered a great set and drew enough people to make the night a huge success.

It's difficult for me to really explain what happened with Mark, Mike Judge and Youth Of Today mainly because I was an outsider to it all. Most people know that Ray Cappo and Mark Ryan were living in the same apartment in NYC for a brief time.

Biv is easily one of my favorite guitarists in all of music - period. Having played most famously in Supertouch, Biv has a guitar sound that is totally his own, and a style that distinguishes him from almost anyone else in hardcore.

There have been times over the years where I am absolutely convinced that JUDGE is the greatest band to have ever walked the earth. They are the perfect combination of everything I love in hard music and specifically, hardcore.

What is life but one big cycle. A cycle, ever changing. It seems that about every five to ten to fifteen years there is a so called “change of the guard”, where a new, younger crop of bands, promoters, and artists, start to book shows, play shows, and make a name for themselves in their communities.
