Editorial Review

Cricket Cemetery is a nifty local label that specializes in bands that play short, fast and loud songs. The label is hosting a showcase at Arlington's cozy Galaxy Hut (capacity 59), featuring a whopping five bands, so a quick bit of math tells us that things will be getting a little crowded in there just accounting for the performers. We can only hope that there will be more room made available by removing some tables and chairs because the hardcore blasts of Bitter American and State Violence are the opposite of sitting music. The precise post-punk of More Humans seems quiet by comparison but still packs a punch.
