The scene was tense from the beginning, with dedicated fans fiending to see their boy Necro live at Richard's on Richards last night (March 21st). Around midnight, an announcement was made (I didn't hear it) that Necro was not going to be able to do his set. Apparently his bus caught a flat tire somewhere between Calgary and here.
So what happens?
Bottles, glasses, and basically anything that wasn't nailed down started flying everywhere. Actually I retract that statement, because even tables got ripped out of the floor and thrown around. The club was completely trashed and lots of people who went to the show for a good time were unnecessarily hurt. This all popped off while that frickin warrior DJ Sage was on stage finishing up his opening set.
To the people who started this shitstorm and to those who kept it going: Way to make sure that Necro will never be booked in Vancouver again because nobody is going to want you crazy fools in their club. There was already plans being made for a make-up show as early as tonight (Sunday, March 22) when it became official that Necro wasn't going to be able to do the show last night. But now that's out the window. Good work guys
