Hi guys.

Sorry about that little hiccup. We're back now.

Dan and I aren't involved in the HC scene on any sort of regular basis anymore, that's why we never update this site. But there's a lot of stuff here that we worked hard on and we want to continue to be available - for both us and you.

When we bought the domain and started Grudge City Activities in 2008, we had no idea it would turn in to something that actually got web traffic. When we we stopped regularly updating it a few years ago, we assumed that the traffic would die off as well. It dropped, but didn't die. GCA still gets a decent amount of visits every day, so we figured we'd better keep it live.

Last month, the domain expired. We had it on automatic renewal, but since Dan has moved a few times between 2008 and now (and lost a credit card or two), it billed a card that was no longer active. Since neither of us check the GCA email on a regular basis, we didn't catch that until I logged on last week to look something up.

It was down for a week or so, but we're back up and, even though it merely functions as an archive now, it'll be up for as long as we can afford to keep renewing the domain. And let's be honest, if we keep doing our jobs right, that shouldn't be a problem.

So feel free to keep checking back and peeking around the archive, reading some SLHC 101's or some videos.

You can find the rest of us doing cool stuff elsewhere around Salt Lake City, but here's where we live on the Internet now and a few other cool sites you should be keeping up on if you're looking to keep up with SLCHC.

Salt Lake Hardcore

Skinned Elbow Records

Fool Proof

and you can find Dan and I on our respective blogs at Fletcher Lives! and trevorhale.com

And don't forget about this:

Whoa. Hey guys. It's been a minute.

The GCA has fallen by the wayside the past couple of years, as you've probably noticed. Dan, Sias and I all got (and continue to be) too busy to keep up with everything going on in SLC.

Luckily for you guys there's a new site run by dedicated people to keep you all in the loop. They've even got a nifty little group text feature to keep you updated on shows—something that we never even thought of over here.

Head over and give them your support.

Also, and brace yourselves here—

There is a message board.

My, oh my, what fun they're in for.

But seriously, head over and check it out. They're doing some great stuff there and everyone that still wants a hardcore scene—or hell, even a local music scene—should be supporting this site.

Austin Chirillo has a new show on UtahFM.org airing the fourth Saturday of every month from 10:30 AM to noon.

While not promising a full hour and half block of straight hardcore, the man does have good taste in music so be sure to tune in and check it out. The first show starts tomorrow, so dial in (or log on, I guess would be the phrase to use here) and support him and UtahFM.org for being kind enough to try something a little different.

You can learn more at his Tumblog or "like" him on Facebook. So check it out and listen tomorrow.

Our good friend Andy Carter dusted off a couple of old videos and sent them my way recently. Granted, they've been sitting on my desktop for the past couple of weeks, but I finally got them loaded up on the Internets for everyone else to see.

Pretty sure these are from the Aftermath CD Release show back in 2005, but I could be mistaken. And be warned, the sound quality on the Gutshot video is awful. But don't worry, it's the fault of Andy's camera, not the band.
