Tales From the Pit: Spin Kicking AFI's Davey Havoc

Band Photo: Early Graves (?)

We've been talking to bands around the world to get their best mosh pit stories. We heard from Makh Daniels of Early Graves about his favorite pit experience:

"11 years ago at a now defunct SF venue called the Cocodrie, I was stage diving and moshing a bunch at a Disembodied show. During the part in the song "Bloodshed Rain" where it goes "GOD SAVE US!" I ended up spin kicking Davey Havoc in the face and nearly knocking him out. Highlight of my spin kicking career."

Next week we'll hear about an impromptu boxing ring at an Unholy show.

What's Next?

RTB- Frank Dukes LOL! I could always pull a Ryu Hurricane Kick from Street Fighter. Unfortunately though I can't make the Hatebreed show- spent too much money at the Down show on Saturday. I am seeing Tool on Saturday, so it's all good.
