So tonight my band played at a Battle of the Bands(the host really likes us so he keeps bringing us back, or giving us spots in the 'playoffs' even though we just go to play music). ANyways, first band up...a cover band. They were decent, I am still trying to comprehend why a cover band is at a battle of the bands type thing, but whatever. Got the crowd pretty riled up. A little too riled up. Two dudes got peppersprayed but some girl and/or guy(her boyfriend, or just some dude out looking to hurt people). My friend and I get some chairs(it was really packed), sit down...cough a little bit. Become proud over our victory at having acquired chairs...cough some more. Sing some Queen(We Are the Champions)...cough a lot more. Remark on how everyone is coughing. Realise we are breathing in pepperspray, and come to the conclusion that the mass exodus that occured moments ago was due to everyone going outside. We also exit...see one of the dudes who got it ALL in the eyes...me and my drummer try to help him(hes drunk so not co-operating). Cops come, helicopter comes trying to find the guy who did it. Anyways, the other guy who got peppersprayed starts trying to start stuff with everybody, almost started a fight with me. Couple minutes later we see him walking away somewhere and a girl is trying to stop him but hes getting a bit violent, we all(bout 9 of us) start making our way towards them. He leaves her alone, she says everything is ok. Talked to some of the cops. Most importantly, the show went on...and we started at about 1am(we were originally supposed to play at roughly 11-11:30). Had fun, but my ability to rock was totally shattered after the pepperspray incident. Luckily I didn't make glaring mistakes(our drummer prematurely ended a song but we caught on quick and some of his fills just totally threw me out of whack but I kept going), but the whole thing was a daze. Anyways, that was too long and had no point, just had to get it out.
