I am going to be busy tomorrow so you get 2 videos today… and oh boy, do I have a story for you. In between Field Day and the Fear set, I was trying to figure out a good place to film without getting hammered by the pit. I decided to get right next to the bar- it is close to the stage and PA and usually isn’t too crazy there. So, while I am waiting for Fear to start, someone spills a beer all the way down the back of my pants. The perpetrator apologizes and leaves. There’s nothing I can do, so I stand there in wet pants and film the show. After the set, I see my friend Barbara Manning and I tell her that someone spilled beer down by back. I look back, and it was PUKE. Someone barfed on me and I did not realize it, then soaked in it for over an hour. I was so skeezed out that I took off my pants in the middle of the street in Long Beach and drove back to San Fernando (45min!) in my underwear, with the window down and heater on. The next day, I go to the car to fetch my hoodie and it was puked on as well.
Have a beer with Fear, indeed.
I don’t have much to say about the set, except I paid more than $1 per minute that they played. Also, they would be completely screwed if Spit Stix was not with them. He is one of the best drummers in the world and he carried the band through this set.
