Straight Edge kids are rad. Some of the best hardcore shows Ive been to are straight edge shows, becuase I dont have to deal with some drunk ass falling all over himself like a fucking fool.
There are ton of different degrees of straight edge, from people who are simply sober and dont flaunt, to the Hardliners who are vegans, anti Pharma, anti-sex, etc.
And what do you expect? Richmond has one of the largest hardcore scenes in the states, and if your buddy got jumped to almost getting killed, then he obviously fucked up somewhere.
Regardless, just respect them, and they respect you. Other than elitist dicks, which nobody likes.
Make friends with the dudes in Richmond. Ive had so many fun times up there.
Then you have assholes who missed the whole point of it

Plus Total War is a White Supremacist band, so theyre not really welcomed in the scene regardless.
