My Darkest Days Live at The Machine Shop in September 2012 [VIDEO]
Ten years ago this month, My Darkest Days played a sold-out show in Flint, Michigan.
September 21st is a big day in history for My Darkest Days as well as Flint, Michigan. It was on September 21st, 2010 that My Darkest Days released their debut album of the same name and took the world by storm.
On September 21st, 2012, they played to a sold-out crowd at the World Famous Machine Shop in Flint, Michigan. The bill that night also included Otherwise and Surrender the Fall.
So for the 12th anniversary of their album and the 10th anniversary of that show at The Machine Shop, I dug back in the archives to find some footage of that night. Below you'll find some behind-the-scenes footage of the band and some of us here at the station just before My Darkest Days took to the stage. The quality is a little rough as we just got the GoPro camera a couple of days before and none of us really knew how to use it.
Looking back on the show, it was a blast! Every time My Darkest Days would come to town, we had a great time and always ended up paying for it the next day. While the photo below is not from the morning after this show, it is a perfect representation of what we went through the next morning.
This was ten years ago as well when we were better at partying. Pretty sure I would die after a party like this at my current age.
Check out the video below for a cool perspective on what it is like for bands playing a sold-out show at The Machine Shop. Big thanks to My Darkest Days for putting up with us that night. (Also, disregard the date of the show on the YouTube description. I'm sure I was still in pain when that was uploaded.)
