Once we kicked into our set (which is more "modern" sounding) we won the crowd over, but we had a ton of people come up to us after the show "Wow, your vocalist actually... sings!" That didn't sit well with the "hardcore" band on after us though, they were constantly shouting at us from side stage. I wanted to pull a Blaze and after a song just start yelling "FUCKING KILL HIM!" But we just ignored them.
Why not pull a Bruce and go "I'll rip of your fucking head, and shove it up your butt you stupid dick face!"
and the singing dies down for just a second, right? Long enough for my dad to go "This is how they used to transport the Jews!"
