doin' it
doin' it
and doin' it well....
Man, it’s nutty to see all the hype surrounding At the Drive-In. I’m glad the music never died and young kids are still in love with the music. I can’t help but think how grateful I am to have not only seen ATDI live before they imploded, but also to come from their hometown.

I saw De Facto’s first show. They opened for Fugazi, and it was a huge controversy because Ian MacKaye didn’t want that “mainstream shit” to be associated with them. The rumor was that he told them they couldn’t even promote it as “ATDI’s new band”. That night was ridiculous. The energy filled the entire place. Most people had no clue what to expect of De Facto, people wanted them to play ATDI songs. I think they even had technical difficulties. Everyone was mind fucked when Cedric got behind the drum kit. 

I was 15 and stupid, but I had the time of my life that night. ATDI helped make the El Paso scene, and were a big reason a lot of good, quality bands came through. Their music was life changing for a lot of people. I’m happy I get to relive that feeling soon.
