Oh, and the crowd was just as moronic for wrecking the gear.
I don't find it edgy or cool. Booking fake shows and fests knowing that they will sell out then not letting the venue know you aren't showing up and waiting until over 3 hours after the show starts to finally have the venue take over and cancel it after the crowd gets pissed off isn't cool. I don't know if they are trying to promote something or be cool.
What they ended up doing was screwing over a lot of fans of theirs and even if we did get our money back, the wasted time and the thinking that they will come on isn't cool.
I don't ever want to have to go see a band live and always have to worry about if they feel like showing up or not.
