About this time last year, I let y’all know of DIY basement venue I was running called Jurassic Park in West Lafayette, IN. Well after a series of unfortunate events, I had to call things off for the rest of the year due to noise violations and neighbors problems. Well I started it up back in January with a different format and it has fit perfectly since. Over the span of four months, I had Reading Rainbow, Cast Spells (Dave from Maps & Atlases), husband&wife, The Modern Electric, Secret Colours, and a whole bunch more. I’ve started it back up after the summer and my friend Chris Loudenslager has come along for the ride to take great photos and high quality videos of some performances. I had Bloomington shoegaze duo Stagnant Pools come play last weekend, who I posted about last month, and they played a couple songs from their forthcoming album.

I haven’t posted anything relatively hardcore in a while, so it was about time I found some good stuff. Former Thieves, out of the Iowa hardcore scene, play ruthlessly hard and loud punk. These guys have played past shows with bands Native, La Dispute, Xerxes, and Touché Amoré, so I just assumed they are good. The Great and the Alleged Great may be only 5 songs totally up to 15 minutes, but they don’t hesitate at all to let loose. While still a raw punk album, the music is surprising intricate and polished, which takes a few listens to notice those small things. Former Thieves are signed onto Mansfield, OH hardcore-label Mayfly Records. They got this release printed on sweet orange/yellow swirl vinyl from Gotta Groove Records! You can pick this release on vinyl from Mayfly’s Big Cartel or pay a dollar for it on their BandCamp.
