In Effect Hardcore conducted an interview with New York City’s THE LAST STAND.
You guys were telling me that your demo came out in October 2010 for your first show. Where was that show and can you tell us how the show went?
DION: Our first show was in NYC down on the lower east side at this place called The Bowery Electric. It was a Black ‘N Blue Production with The Last Stand (TLS) as the opener, our friends Maximum Penalty, Wisdom in Chains and Shutdown as the headliner. The show was great and I was more nervous for the TLS set than Shutdown’s because I had put so much into the songs and I hoped people would dig them. We played a really short set, people checked us out, and I thought it was tight and professional for a brand new band. I received a lot of compliments which was cool. Later that night I played the Shutdown set which was like riding a bike….really fun.
MIKE: We played for fifteen minutes…the whole thing is on YouTube actually. It was cool, but also odd for me as it was literally my first time singing on stage for a band that was not Inhuman…the first new band for me playing live in 15 years. I was a little nervous and stiff, but it went well.
