Now that the holiday season is behind us, its time to look back and see how Christmosh 2010 was.
Christmosh was a term that was coined only a few years prior. Though originally it was only a one or two day thing we had decided to make shows for everyone and reach out to a wide variety of audiences.
Our first date was held at Club Karma in Patchogue - with Hit the Lights and Such Gold. The weekend started as a pop-punk fest, with The Wonder Years tour being moved to the venue on short notice only a day prior (an early xmas present, if you will).
It was cold, but inside people got rowdy and really enjoyed all the bands playing. There were circle pits and singalongs throughout the night.
The next night at the Crazy Donkey was a total different vibe. Local friends Stereo Skyline and Cash Cash came through to celebrate the holidays with their fans. Its a surprise if any of the girls left that room with vocal chords - screams and picture taking was a sum up of the entire night.
The following week started off as a mess because of a terrible snow storm that came through the area, postponing both the Patent Pending and Life as a Ghost.
However, we were able to reschedule that week.
Patent Pending came with a lot of family members (Mania in Urbania & This Good Robot & You Again). Other friends joined on the show, including Love, Robot, Kids of Survival and Giants at Large. All in all it was a fun rock show - the reschedule didn’t stop anyone from coming out and having a good time. The venue, though, must have taken a hit from the storm because there were about 3 power outages during Patent Pending’s headlining set. The show must go on - and they did. Jumping all around, disappearing bass players and X-mas PJs were some of the highlights of the set.
Life as a Ghost certainly brought the mosh to the Vibe Lounge - the hardcore lineup featured circle pits all over. The whole show was full of friends which helped. Although Kills and Thrills couldn’t make the new date - all of the bands had a great time. For those that didn’t see the heavy bands when we first announced - this was the show for you. If you missed it, expect a lot of heavier shows this new year. Your welcome.
The final Christmosh show was This Condition - also postponed but to January 9th (so it technically wasn’t 2010 anymore, but whos counting?!) The local heroes brought their friends along: The Sliders, Justin Morrell & One Love to open the night. It was a completely free gig that sold out a month or two in advance. Though some people probably were deterred with the new date - it was a special night for all those who attended. The band played a stripped down acoustic set of songs from their most recent EP - back to their first songs written back a couple years ago.
All in all, the festival was a success. Kids loved it. We loved it. The bands loved it. Now the real question…
