I have been coming into a dilema lately. I love hardcore music but I am not edge. Just about all hardcore bands are straight edge. I have never been to a straight edge show before. Closest I came was when Face to Face opened up for Snapcase. I am concerned that I will be minding my own business, drinking a beer and...well, Boston Beatdown comes to mind. Sick of it All is the only non sXe hardcore band I am familiar with. I really like bands like Champion, Bane, and Most Precious Blood, but they bring the edge crowd. Now I still love punk, always will. But, I have really taken a liking to some hardcore all the sudden. Can anyone recommend a band that is hardcore but not sXe? Anyone else feel the same, or have had similar experience, or worse experiences? I don't feel like getting my head stomped just because I want to have a drink.
