  • Regarding the fellow in the punk band who got attacked.

    I was at a show in Atlantic City a while ago, my buddies metal band (Pale Horse NYC) was playing a very shortened set, which kicked ass. The following band got on stage and had a really bad vibe about them. As they started their first song, I noticed a pair of guys in the crowd with football helmets and baseball bats. They just started hitting random people with the bats.

    Riot police suddenly showed up.

    I don’t understand people who can’t just enjoy music without resorting to violence. Why? Why ruin a show for everyone else?

    Still boggles my mind.
