SITC’s 1st Official Stage Dive Competition

As many know, tomorrow night, the Through the Noise Tour hits Toronto’s Opera House featuring both BANE and COMEBACK KID. The word on the street is that there will be no barrier. We figure there will be no better time than to hold our 1ST OFFICIAL STAGE DIVE COMPETITION. Get pumped.

In case you weren’t aware, stage-diving, as Jason Oyoung would say, is “very crucial.” Unfortunately, our usual venue doesn’t have a stage so they aren’t really option on the regular. This means that we have to compensate by trying to fit as many in as possible at the bigger shows. It’s also a rare occasion where such a huge hardcore show occurs at a venue without significant obstacles (we all hate the weird height difference of the stage at the REVERB) so we want to take advantage of it.

The competition will take place during BANE’s set tomorrow night. Should there be a tie, there will be a bonus round during COMEBACK KID’s last three songs.

Here are the rules:

  • All stage dives will be counted from the moment the lights dim until AARON BEDARD signifies that the set is finished.
  • You will be awarded for quantity over quality. Two feet must leave the stage (or monitor) and be in the air before your body hits the crowd for the dive to be counted though.
  • If you pull any bogus, intentional, feet first dives, you will be immediately disqualified. Keep it positive.
  • Catch each other. It will make for more dives overall.
  • If you pull any spectacular shit, like a front flip or a leap-frog over an unsuspecting frontman (it’s been done) you will be awarded bonus style-points at the judges’ discretion. Do not climb the P.A. You’ll basically guarantee getting yourself kicked out.
  • The winner will receive free entry into two (2) SITC shows of their choosing and a free copy of the Fucked Up Weekend DVD.
  • There will be no 2nd place. 2nd place is first loser.

Oh yeah, and we’re looking for judges.

It should also be noted that this tour is in support of COMEBACK KID’s new dvd on lame-ass VICTORY RECORDS. I interviewed Scott for the dvd one day while on lunch from work. Check it out.
