YouTube Gold: System of a Down in Grand Rapids 1999 [Video]
If you dig deep enough, you will find gold in them thar hills! A few nights ago I typed in Grand Rapids into the YouTube search bar and found concert footage from all types of concerts in the past years. Then I stumbled upon one that shows how small they once were, and that was System of a Down.
Before you get big, you've gotta start somewhere. At a venue known a SubCulture in the Grand Rapids area back in 1999, a little known band named System of a Down played there...no joke!
System of a Down just released their first album with songs like 'Sugar' 'Suite-Pee' 'Know' and plenty more. It's really cool to see how young they were before having an elaborate stage setup, playing arenas, etc.
They were just a band trying to make it big, and they sure did. I think it would be fun to talk to these guys about their old days.
Check out the video below from August 23, 1999 at SubCulture in Grand Rapids, MI!
