City to City - “On Affluence and Apathy” - 4/8/09 (by GrudgeCityActivities)

i wish we still played. sigh.

trevorhale:

For a couple of years, my man Dan Fletcher and I ran a local HC blog called GrudgeCityActivities.com.
We posted news, did interviews and tried to capture the SLC hardcore scene in daily zine form, only on the internet. We spent a lot of time working on it and it’s something I’m still pretty proud of to this day. We both got way too busy to keep up on it, so now it just kind of sits there.
One thing we probably spent the most time on was the Salt Lake Hardcore music archive. We tracked down and uploaded tons of early and hard to find SLC releases and sprinkled in a bunch of newer stuff as well.
Since there are some things that are just begging to be heard again (and I know there are a few younger SLC hardcore/straight edge kids following me that may not have heard these bands) I’m going to periodically post some of them.
First up is the band the aforementioned Dan Fletcher fronted along with Clinton and a couple other Tumblr-hating dudes.
It came on my iPod this afternoon and I was doing sing-a-longs and pretend mic grabs the whole drive home. Get it.
City to City. One of the best bands SLC has produced in a long time.

I wasn’t always a grump… well, yes i was… but i did fun stuff with fun people and this one of them.
