The night started off a bit hectic as there was some confusion with the promoter of the show and the owner of the venue as well as what time we were actually scheduled to interview with Art Of Dying, so when Antman and I found out Jonny Hetherington and the boys were hanging out at Gallo’s Tap Room we jumped at the chance to have some suds and get out to a fun, impromptu location while the situation at the venue cooled down. Once we got there and drinks were attained we watched some of the Jay’s/Cleveland game (who knew they were such big fans of Baseball) till it was time to talk. When Antman came out to the show with me he thought he was just there to learn, but when he told me how much he liked Art Of Dying and the positive message they play out on stage I decided to pop his interview cherry!
See what happens below!
Once we all got back and the show was underway everything seemed smooth as butter even with the last minute addition of Dead Horse Trauma, a band that was on tour from Iowa. Little did I realize there was a nice little storm brewing outside while we rocked our butts off! I had taken a good amount of shots during the Art Of Dying set and had to run to the “little Generals” room and when I came out, something was off. Jonny was on stage looking for a mic in mid song, Only problem is they were all fried. You could hear just a bit but definitely not enough to play a show. Over the next few minutes the sound team did their best to address the problem to no avail when a second lightning strike hit. I’m no sound guy but from the talk I heard the crossover was friend and audio couldn’t get to the sound board and back again essentially putting the kabash on the whole thing. Johnny and the boys took a second to plan and then walked back out on stage with chairs and acoustic guitars in hand. Joined by Alexa Kabazie of Letters From The Fire, the band played on, and the fans LOVED it. Have a look at that clip as well as my photo gallery from the night!
