On Friday September 30th, 2016 another installment of Catacombs shows occurred at Wilson Abbey. This night featured Anti-World System (D-Beat punk from JPUSA in Uptown Chicago), Ramp Vamps (Skate Punk from Peoria, Illinois), & Desiring Dead Flesh (Punk from Bay City, Michigan) as they returned home for a long tour that took them to the west coast for the Extreme Tour.
The titles in this Show Promo video & the beginning of each band's set was the first time I was able to return to using the Motion program to make the titles. For some reason it wasn't opening on my old computer so I was using a built in option on Final Cut Pro for most titles. I prefer using Motion...it's a little easier overall. I prefer using the black & white effect on the Promo videos. I took a clip of the song "Don't Forsake The Fellowship" by Anti-World System for a soundtrack.

It's always an adventure at a Desiring Dead Flesh show. Lots of objects fly through the air. Stuffed animals tend to be dismembered. Circle pits, sweat...maybe some blood too. It was nice that they could pass through Chicago again & that we could have them once again at Catacombs. They are always welcome!
Some other footage I captured on this night include Leper giving medical advice to Desiring Dead Flesh & other banter, some merch sales, & a wonderful post show meal of pulled pork & chili for the bands.
