2/6/12: Kyle Mabson & Sean Carnage present The Mae Shi (original line-up), Totally Radd!!, Laco$te (original line-up), The Pope, DJ Jonathan Snipes and MC Andre Hyland at Pehrspace.
If you though the Val Kilmer / Dan Deacon / Future Islands show was nuts (huge crowd, celebrities), this one was even more insane. Lines around the block. Kids camped out for hours before the show. A gazillion people crammed (safely) inside. Sweat running like rivers down the walls (no exaggeration).
And all for a barely-known local band who had been broken up for a number of years—The Mae Shi, with original line-up including frontman Ezra Buchla.
I was really proud of our scene on this night. We created the most excitement I’ve seen at a Monday Night show without any “name” acts! Well, maybe Andre Hyland—he’s on TV.
In retrospect it was all a bit of a downhill slide after this one.
Once again the photos do not do this justice to the event. I was at the door coordinating entry in shifts, so that everyone was safe, had some room to breathe and could see just a little of the show. Consequently I did not get to snap many pics.
Do you have photos of this show that you’d be willing to share with me?
