7th Annual Every Time I Die Christmas Show

7th Annual Every Time I Die Christmas Show

Friday, December 16

I can’t help it, whenever I think about Every Time I Die I think about Christmas. Not because their music is particularly holiday spirited (“Roman Holiday” is more about ritual sacrifice than ritual pine tree decoration) or because they are some kind of polite and gentle Christian group (“Jesus Christ I am forever making the same mistakes!,” sings front man Keith Buckley on “The Sweet Life,”) but because every year since Hot Damn! dropped, the Buffalo hardcore legends have brought the carnage back home for an annual Christmas show. Last year the five-piece played three straight shows to packed crowds at Mohawk Place, this year they’ll throw one huge holiday rager at Club Infinity on Friday (Dec 16). These guys have to embrace Christmas, I mean; as far as the rest of the world is concerned Buffalo might as well be the North Pole. But I doubt the little drummer boy can nail that sweltering punk beat on “Buffalo 666,” like drummer Ryan Leger does, and I know for a fact Santa can’t slay as hard as Jordan Buckley. Saint Nick certainly has nothing on Andy Williams’ beard either. Even if you don’t celebrate Christmas, hopefully this got you into a ho ho hardcore mood and ETID’s seventh annual Christmas show will definitely keep that holiday spirit going. Texas In July and the Donner Party open the show. —cory perla
