HARDCORE FEST 2010: WHY ARE THEY SO ANGRY?
Crossingpoint, The Rising End, Go! Go! Bronco, Conqueror, Compass, Towers| Saturday, July 24 |The Winston Pub, Durban|
Dust off your flannel and come limber. Tonight’s every card-carrying Durban hardcore fan’s ultimate wet dream. The kind of show the Winston hasn’t witnessed for a long time – featuring a cast of faces I haven’t seen out since Uprising 2008. It’s Durban hardcore champs Crossingpoint’s last show, featuring a hello-goodbye performance by once-retired-now-retired-again local heroes The Rising End – plus Go! Go! Bronco, Towers and new Jo’burg buddies Conqueror and Compass.
For the past 12 years, guitarist and only original member Brandon van Eeden’s held Crossingpoint together like a human defibrillator. No matter what happened, he’d regroup, readjust and keep the dream alive. Tonight that ride comes to an end (for now). Bassist Ross and drummer Richard are off to Hong Kong to open a tattoo shop and this time, Brandon’s had enough.
