Same Old Shame, Skin 30
Celebrating Joey Kamiya's 16th Birthday
Live at the Okinawa Club
Gardena, CA
May 24th, 2003

Skin 30 opened up this show with a lot of energy while playing their ten own songs even though the crowd consisted of relatives from Joey Kamiya's family with a few friends of the band here and there. Skin 30 played "Prayer To A Dead Star" really solid and was one of their best songs they played. Even though there were some problems with the P.A. not being loud enough and the crowd problem, this was still a great set from Skin 30.

Right after Skin 30 was Same Old Shame to close the show. They kicked off their set with "Bro Hymn." This was their very first show ever and they played a total of two originals and six covers by bands like Pennywise, Green Day and Nirvana. S.O.S. had similar problems with the P.A. and the crowd but they still played a solid set and started off on a good note with their first show.

Special thanks to Janet, Eddie, Joey Kamiya and the Kamiya family.
