RESISTANCE
August 25th, 2015 by Tim

7Seconds

In 1985 I joined and performed in the New Jersey Hardcore Band: Resistance. I played one fabled show with the band on September 15, 1985 at the Jazz Loft in New Brunswick, NJ. The show was headlined by 7 Seconds — Aggression also played but were not featured on the flyer — A flyer that I helped design… That is all my handwriting. Our local heroes, Pleased Youth, also played that night. I however was grounded that night and it was also a Sunday night, meaning I had school the next day — So, I had to sneak out of my house in Edison and run two towns over to New Brunswick to play the show and then I had to run back to Edison to sneak back into my house, not able to watch the rest of the show. Resistance soon dissolved after that show BUT it was an epic time and the music was good. I’m glad to have reconnected recently with my old Resistance bandmates and we are working on recording some of our original material as well as some new songs for a future release.
Thanks to Mitch Gurowitz for digging this flyer up. – Mike Vallely

Our mission is to bring life into the Bay Area California hardcore/punk scene by supporting smaller bands and their various communities. We have bands from all over the west coast coming out for this and are flying a couple bigger acts to make an even better weekend. Also, labels, local business, zines and charity organizations running tables during the festival. We look at this as a community event in addition to music festival. We look to make it an annual event.
