Hungover..But Still Hangin’ In

 

Hey Fiends,

Well, we’re knee deep in a crazy July concert schedule. It’s definitely a survival test on our old bones. We’re still a bit hungover, but there’s many miles to go before we sleep. Hope you had a chance to catch the broadcast last night. We had a fanatastic weekend and partied it up..Maybe a bit too much (lol)..The AVENGING BENJI show at The Coliseum on Friday night was incredible!! It was amazing to see all the CRIMSON GLORY alumni that performed onstage..That was a FUN time for us!! On Sat we had TRAPT at The State Theatre. It was a packed house, and the local openers DARK SAVVANT and CROW kicked major ass!! We did not stick around for TRAPT or their support acts because a member of their crew was pushing our stage crew around. Seemed like this guy was looking for a fight. We didn’t give him one. We’re a bit more professional than that. So the entire stage crew left (lol) We sometimes deal with douchebags, but this guy took the cake. He was also overheard by everyone saying that ‘He Hated Local Bands’..That was pretty much it for me, and it took all my willpower to not give this guy the fight he wanted, and seriously this guy ‘wanted’ to fight.  I’m wondering how many venues on the tour have complained, or even tossed him from the premises. This guy was ‘not’ even the Tour Manager. Why is it that some of the smaller B-National bands are the one’s that have the dickheads on their crew? We deal with some of the biggest bands in the world at State Theatre, and usually their crew is really cool. Seems the problems we have had in the past, and there’s not many, are always from the B-Nationals. But when a crew member slams the local bands, thats pretty much it for me. The local bands brought in half the crowd for TRAPT. Well, I’m not going to harp on this. All I can say is, THE LOCAL BANDS KICKED ASS..Then we left, so did the stage crew..I forgot the guys name, not really worth mentioning anyway, but with an attitude like that, he won’t last long on many tours. At least we got an early night. We’re NOW preparing for a massive weekend with 3 shows in row..See below
