The Summer of 2008 was difficult on the hardcore community in Utah. There wasn’t much left of a scene that was once packed with fans, musicians, and genuine veterans of

By

When I hear the word “crew” used to describe a group of musicians, my first instinct is that the reason for the crew is to make up for some lacking in the crew members.
