On 6/23/09 at Valentine's in Portland,OR i went to see fellow former Phoenician Justin Cory play a solo show under the name Typwrytrs. Justin is probably best known for his longtime 2 man band in Phoenix called Bodhisattva.

Justin played a great set, the only problem with acoustic music in bars is the music doesnt cover up the sound of people talking. Sorry if the footage isnt the bestt, hope to get more again.

running amuck in and abandoned city, made of salt with a Libyan who has AIDS

Looking online for some kind of show to attend, I lucked out and noticed the RunnAmuckS were in town with revolving members in the fellow touring acts Superaids and Libyan Hit Squad . All the bands had great performances, even with the low turnout. Show was 6/22/09 at Plan B in Portland,OR.

Superaids reminded me of a lot of the punk bands from West Phoenix area in the 90's. Which I always thought were great.

These guys went from old school hardcore influence to a jazzy fusion.

Great set and a fun band to watch. The Marvel comics artwork on their shirts and albums made the nerd in me extra happy

Though they sound better at this venue, I like these guys more at a house show atmosphere. Great set.

I was tired and planned on leaving, but I am glad I stayed to watch these guys.

pop a top

The flier is a little misleading. Burials was not able to play, Blueprint for Disaster and Ritual Necromancy took their place. The show was at a punk basement next door to a strip club called the Boneyard on 6/20/09.

great opening set

a lot of energy, they had a lot of Eyehategod influence, which is always cool to hear

all the way from Denver. grindy with some slow songs as well


great set, wish the vocals would have come out
