90s Emo Party House: Ohio

While searching around Flickr, I came across this set of pictures of shows that took place in one house in Ohio in the mid 90s. Normally band photography is insanely boring, but seeing them in a specific collection of this one guy's personal photos of the bands that played in his own house is kind of amazing. True fact: I have French kissed one of these people pictured.

The Rye Coalition


Braid


The Make Up (1994)


The Make Up (1996)


Ezra Pound


Harriet the Spy


Slant 6

These are from Ohio State University's campus & I think I know a few people who lived and went there during those times.

This is like looking at my life in 1995 just in Ohio.

not awkward nor embarrassing party photos, unless you're a 30-something nostalgic for their bland 90's youth.

wow. i knew something had to have happened for me to get all of those views on a rye coalition photo out of the blue. so i checked my stats and it led me here.

i'm sorry you missed my party too. and i'd love to know who it was you kissed.

usually I'm not the kind to French and tell, but if you must know it was the guy in the foreground of the Ezra Pound photo.

Neal said...

So, ah, did Ezra Pound or was it nice and slow?

party pooper said...

Very funny, Neal, very funny. It was sweet like a sunny day on the real estate of my lips (ew?).

erindolak said...

ooh ooh, i know i know! did it have anything to do with the three bottles of wine we stole from the 19 year old bartender when she'd leave them on the bar then turn her back?

i played shows with three of those bands and shared a bed with bob nanna from braid (he was in friction at the time) while on the road. brings back memories...

god i wish you had french kissed ian svenonious instead

party pooper said...

svenonious has made love to each of our brains so many times, it would only be a let down to have a physical manifestation of his carnal prowess.

Jess said...

And I've made out with two of them. I think this officially makes me a dirty groupie.

Andrew said...

These are great! I was going to vote Bob Nanna.

It seems to me it is excellent idea. I agree with you.
