Comments:This was Kristens birthday party, house shows are always so much fun, this was no exception. Although the sound wasn't all that great, we had a blast. Gerry jumped over the drumset and tackled me (Dave) while I was playing, he almost killed me...it was fun.

Comments:This was the third night of a three show weekend celebrating the release of the 'harbour mix' compilation, made up of different bands from all over the halifax region. The cd's avaiable at alot of stores in the Halifax area. The show was alright I guess, nothing special really.
With:Bound to Happen, Dry Leaf, Nothing To Say, By Any Means
Comments:This was the second night of Punkfest '00 and also our cd release show. There was a ton of people at the show and was really fun. We sold all 50 cd's we brought with us (which broke the record of cd's sold at a release party at the pavilion/cafe ole). Some girl wrote an article on the show for the Dalhousie newspaper, it pretty much sucks (according to her we only have 4 members now??) but I'll try to get it scanned (my scanners busted) anyways, thers a prety cool picture of Scott in it.

With:No Control, Self Inflected, DTA, Purple Knight
Comments:The best EVER!! There was over 300 people there and there was a HUGE pit!!! The whole show ruled!! We brought up 15 cds and sold them all in about 3 minutes. We can't wait to go back.
Comments:I'm not sure this counts as a show, but we played on the show Firestorm and CKDU run by Ian and Morgan. It was super fun! The night guy didn't show up so me (dave), Wayne and Jay ran the show all night.
With:Jokesover, Malpractice, The Rivals
Comments:There was a really good turnout considering it was a Thursday. It was Ethans entrepeneurship project and a pretty fun show, I'm pretty sure he made enopugh money to pass his project.
With:Last Few Years, Bound To Happen and The Dumpsters
Comments:OMARFEST 2000!!!! Haha, this show ruled!! There was a lot of people there for a house show. We played pretty good I guess, the cops came and shut it down during Last Few Years last few songs (haha, get it?).
With:Dichotic, Terratomb and Subservient
Comments:Ok, this was our first metal show. Everyone was kind of wondering how many people would be there. But suprisingly quite a few people showed up. It was a really fun show. I think were going to try to set up another show with Dichotic sometime later on.

Comments:This show was part two of the New Seen Fest to raise money for a compilation cd we will be appearing on. The show started almost an hour late because Dry Leaf brought the drums and they showed up late. Because of this evryones sets were shortened. But the show was still really fun. We opened with the Snot Party theme song and everyone went nuts, the crowd was really into our set. Some people are saying it was our best show yet.
With:When All's Been Said
Comments:This show sucked so much. When Alls Been Said were the only people watching us. It was just bad. Crappiest show we've ever played. And as if that wasn't bad enough, Matt's car broke down on the way home, and it was fucking cold out. So it all just sucked. I don't think we'll be going back to Truro for a while, unless we go up to release our cd up there.
With:When All's Been Said, Malpractice, New Terra, Jokes Over
Comments:This whole show was so much fun. It was the first time we headlined as Falling Short. Our set kind of sucked, but we still played pretty good.

Comments:This was supposed to be the second show of the weekend. We went up to Truro to play Friday night but we got there and there was no show...so we hung out in Truro all night, it was pretty fun. But PEI was awsome. We had three car loads of people (2 with us and 1 that was When All's Been Said). The whole trip was fun as hell. The show kicked alot of ass. When All's Been Said were so good, we fuckin love those guys. And we played a really good set, we seemed to break alot of stuff though. The crowd was fucking nuts, it was so fun. We played a total of 17 songs, the most we've ever played at a show. We were worried about the set being too long, but someone said it was only like half an hour or so. We wasted practically no time speaking, just pure music, it was great. The PEI scene seems pretty great, since we didn't play in Truro we got no money, and we needed some cash to get home, we hate buming money but we did it anyways because we needed it. Everyone was real great and helped out, they ended up donating over 50 bucks and we got home fine. Thanks so much to everyone that gave us some change...well, thanks to everyone for coming out and making this show so fucking fun.

Comments:This was our second time playing in Truro. It was fucking amazing. Even funner than the first time. When we were done people started chanting more. It was really cool. So we played Filler and I Don't Want To Hear It by Minor Threat and everyone went nuts! It kicked ass!! Cafe-X-treme is a real cool place, if ya get a chance go check it out. Michelle and Alana weren't weren't there this time, they got kicked out of their apartment...but we'd like to thank Darren alot for letting us stay at his place and for setting up the show.

Comments:This was a benifit show for A.L.S. There was alot of people, alot of money was probably made for the A.L.s. foundationg. Fun show.
Comments:Umm....I think this classifies more as band practice with people over then a show.
With:Choke, Jokesover, New Teraa
Comments:This was Wayne's first show. It sucked. The sound was all fucked up and everything kept cutting out. I think Matt had fun, but in the rest of our eyes it was the worst show that we've played so far. But we did start a pumpkin fight, that was kinda cool.
TimmyX's thoughts:Pavilion sound sux.It really does.Perfect ex.Falling Shorts set last night.Ahahahaha man the sound was so bad it wasn't even funny.I couldn't hear Scott singin.BLAH! But they played a new one so that was cool.As was the minor threat cover.As usual there was crazy pit and as usual timmyX got hurt.Gosh darn pumpkin.And now since Wayne is in the band they have a new hardcore fan,Nick.WATCH OUT!!!!! Uhh yea.Overall alright set.I've heard better.

Comments:This was our first out of province show, it was possibly our funnest show yet. Greg played bass with us, and also Wayne played 2 songs. There was a lot of people there and everyone was going nuts! We might be going back sometime in December but we're not sure yet....hope we do.
Where:Cafe X-treme (Truro)
With:Shoebox, Slight Return, When All's Been Said, Led By Regret
Comments:We get to Truro, expecting maybe like 5-10 people to be there, but there was tons of people, and they all seemed to get really into it when we played. We can't wait to go back. The place was amazing, really big, and it was all done by the youth, they painted the place, built the stage, worked the lights, everything. So we're up in Truro and find we have no place to stay, we get up on stage and ask who wants to let us crash at there house for the night. Before our last song we find out that two girls (Michelle and Alana) are going to let us stay at their apartment for the night. So we'd like to give a big shout out to Michelle and Alana and there roomate Amanda for putting up with us, they were really cool people...cya next time we're in Truro!

Comments:This show was a suicide prevention/awarness show, it was also a benifit show for a family from Cape Breton in need. We were really glad to be a part of this show, thanks to everybody who played, Condon and Selwyn for putting it on and a special thanks to everyone who came out!
With:Last Few Years, New Terra (sorta, Matt played guitar for them)
Comments:The show at Evan's house was so fun, we decided to have another basement show, this time at Dave's. This Day Forth we're supposed to play but couldn't because they had to head back home to Newfoundland. Last Few Years seem to get better each time I see them. This show was really fun, I (Dave) will probably host another sometime before too long.
Where:Evan Peacock's Basement
With:We were the only band
Comments:This was a last minute thing. It was Evan's birthday party (and also his first show with us), people were supposed to go to Evan's house and then go skating, but it started raining, so they couldnt skate. So the band played instead. It was fuckin fun! There were about 20 people there and everyone was up and dancin....it got soooo hot in there
