For those that have never experienced the phenomenon known as “hardcore time,” I envy you. Hardcore time means that whatever the advertised start time of a show is, you add at least an hour, sometimes more, and that’s the actual time the first band will play. I’m well aware of this. I’ve been a victim (and admittedly, the occasional instigator) of hardcore time for many years, but it still gets me every single time. Friday night was no exception, only it wasn’t as bad as it could have been with only three bands on the bill and the mighty Insight set to headline.
