The Sounds Of The Underground gig was going to be a doozy because it was a Festival styled event that brought together eighteen bands on a single stage out in Sayreville, NJ. While being held at the Starland Ballroom venue, the actual show would take place out in the parking lot on the asphalt blacktop and since we were in the middle of Summer, it was a sweltering day with temperatures upwards of 98 degrees with no shade to speak of. I braved this show with my buddy Pete Pardo from the Sea Of Tranquility website and gave heaviest focus to the later performing bands.
