    This morning I checked my Facebook and saw that a shitshow went down last night in Lansing, MI. From what I read, a local ran 30 minutes over time and the band and their fans started dousing people in lighter fluid and hitting them with baseball bats. The show got shut down before most of the touring bands could play. I don't want to post the band in questions name, because fuck giving them publicity. They shouldn't be hard to find though.

    Was anyone actually at the show? Hopefully Zack or Aaron stop in to give their accounts.

    What the fuck?! I can vaguely understand some shit like this going down at a big metal show or some sort of electronic show, but at a smallish gig within a pretty tight community? Fuck.

    have those dickbags never heard of what happened with great white and the 100 people that were killed when they burned a club down?

    the fire thing alone should prevent those guys from ever getting another gig again...

    I've played a show with this band before. They basically bring a "crew" with them. The fans get rowdy and start fights. The show I played with them was about a month ago, the usual incidents happened, cops showed up and ended up having to use mace. Needless to say, most Michigan venues/promoters know about them and will never book them.

    Fuck, what is the point to all that? I guess I just don't understand the whole "look how fuckin' tough I am" attitude that some people have.

    They live in Flint, which is fairly dangerous. I guess that's their excuse for their violent antics. I think it's pointless.

    Yeah, that's a pretty common talking point on the comments on their page.

    problems like this usually sort themselves out in a Darwinian sense

    They're blacklisted from just about every venue around here. There was a youtube video from one of their shows that shows them throwing part of a dead deer carcass into the crowd, along with what appears to be a dead cat in a plastic bag, but the video is private now. Their crew is full of 16-26 year old people that are going nowhere in life. Catch one of them by themselves and they won't do or say shit, they're only tough guys when their friends are with them.

    I've heard a few people say they're alright dudes, but then again I've heard of a few incidents of them beating the shit out of people. The violent tough guy image doesn't cover up shitty music.

    It was definitely a crazy situation. My band (7H7E) had just finished our set. I went outside to cool off a little after as Jeff's band, and chimp are all sharing a lot of gear so it is easier. When I was outside people started coming outside with black eyes, gashes and just over all totally messed up. The first kid I saw had his upper lip split in two!

    It took the cops forever to show up. When we went back in, it smelled of gas/lighter fluid so strongly you had to hold your breath to get our gear out.

    Nobody else from our tour package even played. Shitty night for sure!

    I will try to upload some pics but I am on my phone now. If someone wants to email me a reminder I will upload them either from the venue or from the hotel
