When I first got into hardcore I witnessed some pretty wild events. There were fights with skinheads, suburban dudes acting as "crews," countless stage dives, a full scale riot, black eyes, a broken nose, and a broken window at a gig in a second story loft courtesy of a guitar amp. There was also the time we all had to wait it out because someone pulled a gun out in the parking lot. This all transpired within my first two years in the scene. Needless to say I was hooked. This podcast will se ...

I've been saying for a few weeks now that I never thought I'd make it to episode 100 with the podcast. While I'm still technically not there yet, it's safe to we are going to reach that milestone and then some. Whenever I've reflected on the podcast this year with close friends and family, I've always said that everything would fall into place for …

Episode 96 features Joe Villella's first appearance on the podcast. Joe has played in a ton of Buffalo bands dating back over 30 years. Since a lot of the bands and shows we talked about predates my time in hardcore, I thought it would make sense to bring Jim Callahan back on the podcast to cohost. One of Joe's current bands Pissing Match are playi…

The five piece band has quietly been working on their debut for about five years. Th…
 
You don't find too many bands in hardcore that refer to themselves as protest music anymore. With how fractured our world has become in recent years, it's definitely refreshing to hear from bands like Run Into The Sun. For Episode 93, I spoke with their vocalist Dan and bassist Chase. They both grew up in the Salt Lake City scene so we definitely t…

A lot of bands that would become pretty influential in metalcore…
 
To kickoff the Inaugural Club 400 Palooza, The Club 400 Podcast was Live overlooking Wrigley Field on Waveland.

Danny played several songs - including the first live version of "…
 
I grew up in downtown Rochester, about 85 miles west of Syracuse, NY. In 1997 I started traveling to shows in Buffalo and Syracuse a few times per month, sometimes more. That Summer, Ryan Canavan and Keith Allen booked the first Syracuse Hardcore fest. Two years later the fest would be renamed Hellfest. A lot of bands that were influential to this …

I tried to focus…
 
Episode 86 features my first Australian guest. While he's originally from Australia and lives there currently, most of my listeners will likely remember him from his time in Rochester. Matt played drums for To Fester Within, The Breaking Project, The Avram, and No Sweat, all while he was in high school. We talked quite a bit about him playing in th…
 
For Episode 85, I'm joined by BG from the band Risk. The band is interesting because they were already an active band a decade ago. After breaking up initially, they decided to give it another run a few years back. Like a lot of bands, they were slowed down significantly in March of 2020. In the last year Risk has been fairly active with shows and …

For Episode 84 I'm joined by Paul Glover from the band Rat Poison. I had a Rat Poison track on Episode 80 and I got to talking with Paul a little bit and figured it would be cool to have him on a future episode.

While I try to keep an eye on the current scene, the bulk of this podcast has focused on the 90s and 2000s in hardcore and punk.

For Episode 82, we had a lengthy discussion centered around five of the bands Jeremy has been a part of, including his current band Tuning. We…
 
For Episode 81 I am joined on the podcast by Travis Hance. Travis is probably most known for a few of the bands he played in while living in Syracuse in the early 2000s. These bands include Hermon Dekalb, Darker Day Tomorrow, and The Funeral. We spend a bulk of the conversation talking about these bands and Syracuse Hardcore in general. Before that…
 
For Episode 80 I am bringing you new music for the first time in five months. We have 15 different bands from all over the US on here. In fact, I have already started compiling tracks for another new music episode this Summer. There's definitely no shortage of new music within our subculture currently. Here's the list of 15 bands that appear on thi…
 
One thing I've always loved about Rochester is the diversity and originality of our bands. In the last two decades, Travis Johansen has been a part of many of these diverse bands. Greg Benoit (Rochester Hardcore History) and I had the privilege of interviewing Travis for this episode. We talk about some of his earlier projects, as well as all of th…
 
Recently I have been trying to get more Syracuse interviews for the podcast. I've been wanting to learn more about the history of the scene there, as well as how straight edge got to be so influential there. I knew Tom Ranger would be able to tell me a lot about how this city built such a dynamic scene over the years. Tom has been a part of the sce…
 
It took 77 episodes, but we have finally ventured up to the great white north. Miles Between Us was a band from Ottawa that I had the pleasure of working with on my record label over 20 years ago.

For Episode 75 I had a conversation with Tom Cavanaugh. We mostly talked about his time playing in bands in Syracuse.

One of the main focuses of this podcast has been documenting Rochester/Buffalo/Syracuse Hardcore from 20-25 years ago. I've made it a point to cover newer bands and people as well, but I consider the aforementioned years to be some of my more formative years. My favorite Rochester Hardcore bands came along during these years, and I was lucky enough…

One of my favorite bands to come out in the last two years is Deal With God from Syracuse. I had their vocalist Dylan on the podcast back on Episode 48 and I knew I'd have their bassist Colin Mraz on eventually. Similar to Dylan, Colin recently moved to Syracuse in the last couple years. Colin and I talk about his time in Binghamton, fronting the b…
 
In yet another trip down memory lane, I am joined by Nate Golia for Episode 70. Sticking with a common theme of the podcast, I got to catch up with an old friend and reminisce on Rochester Hardcore, mainly the early 2000s era. We talk about the bands Nate was a part of, including Stars Shall Fall, Warblade, Of Wolves, and The Red Death. We also tal…

In the two years I have been active with this podcast, I have seen a ton of new bands form in Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse. One of the bands that recently grabbed my attention is Pure Bliss from Syracuse. Since they dropped their demo last Summer, the band has been fairly active, playing a handful of shows in the northeast. They also toured to …
 
This podcast was started in large part as a way to document the hardcore scene in Rochester, Buffalo, and Syracuse. I have had a pretty strong focus on bands that were active 20-25 years ago, while trying to do my best to keep an ear out for current bands. My discussion with Eric Lepore and Jeff Asbrand checks off both of those boxes. If you were g…
 
The universe feels a little bit better as the MLB owners and players have signed a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. The Hot Stove is on fire and so is Club 400. There are so many upcoming opportunities to be a part of Club 400 that we devoted the entire podcast to discussing them. If you want to be a part of something epic, you need to listen t…
 
If you have been actively involved in hardcore in the northeast in the past 25-30 years, you have likely been to a show with Jeff Lasich. I first met Jeff in 1998 when he was living in the Syracuse area. We had a very similar interest in hardcore, straight edge, graffiti, and fanzines. I don't know if I ever realized that Jeff didn't actually live …
