After years and years of being a metal fan I had never been to Saint Vitus. It always seemed hard to get to and I always knew it would have shows run late which wasn’t good for someone who realies on buses and trains to get to NYC(aka me). After my friend Doug moved to NYC, I deicided to pay him a visit as I had that weekend off. The Saturday of that weekend we both diecided to give the St.Vitus venue a first shot. We headed down to Vitus that night after doing random stuff in NYC. For dinner we checked out this lobster joint called Lobster joint. We got to the venue at door time and then 30 mins later the show started.
First band on was a punk band called S.N.A.F.U. They were a fun warm up as the had a sound simliar to Poision Idea. We ran into a bunch of my friends around this time.
Against the Grain
After chatting with my friends during the intermission the second band, Against the Grain came on. They were also a punk band but this time with some classic rock influence. Like S.N.A.F.U they were a fun warm up.
I had seen Child Bite play with Superjoint Ritual and King Parrot back in 2015. It was a very fun performance as was this second time. The singer had a lot of charisma and punk on a better performance than the first time I saw them. This would end up being Doug’s favorite band on the night.
Last but far from least was the main band of the night, Acid Witch. I had seen them once at mdf 2011 so I was overdue for another espcally after considering their album last year to be their best. Like, Child Bitte Acid Witch put on a better performance than last time. They mixed up the songs greatly as I got to hear greats like Mr.Bestile,The Black Witch,Worship the Worm and Stoned to the Grave. During the match members of Child Bitte came on stage in masks adding theatrics to the performance. All and all it was an awesome show and I can’t wait to revisit this iconic venue.
