Texas Is The Reason

Eleven years ago today, Texas Is The Reason opened for Snapcase at the Showplace Theatre in Buffalo, NY. I was still pretty new to taping bands, and for whatever reason, I shot this from somewhere in the middle of the crowd. I soon learned there were better places to tape from and to plant myself there before bands started. I apologize in advance because the camera work is a bit shaky at times.

Here's the flier from the show.

I was at the that show that is linked. It was the first time I heard Texas and I fell in love with them that day. I even asked the bass player if I could get a copy of the ep for a reduced rate or even free because I was broke. The only reason I was at the show was because my friend Chris wanted to see Snapcase and I felt like going to a show.

this is awsome. one of my favorite bands but never got to see them back then; just endless memmories of driving around long island blasting that shit on repeat. I thought that seeing them in their reunion would make me feel better, but really it just made me feel even more regret for not seeing them when they were top of my playlist.

i did see snapcase however... one too many times, the last time i took a nap during their set under a merch table in 99

...Good shit,i did'nt get to see TITR, but i was probably listening to "Do you know who you are?" while they were playing this show.

rAY said...

Every single one of those bands spits hot fire.

Split Lip was amazing live. I only saw Texas live once, and I regret not seeing them more.

Holy Shit. I was at that show. All 3 bands were amazing, but of course everyone flipped for Snapcase. Good memories...
