Tales From The Pit: Knocking Out The HxC Kid

We've been talking to bands, promoters, and fans to get their favorite mosh pit stories. This is from Bake in Indianapolis.

“Here at the Emerson (Indianapolis) it’s impossible to see a show without some ‘tard tough guy trying to smash heads all night. So I went to see Zao and Unearth and this dude wearing daisy dukes kept running to the front and jumping on us. I grabbed the guy from the back of the head and told him I’d kill him if he hit me again, and he spit in my face... just a little. So my bud kept his eye out for when the kid was coming to jump; we all moved when he made his flight. Luckily for me, the stage took care of knocking the f**ker out. Stupid bastard.”

Awesome story! Always hated Zao. Zao was one of the originators of the ninja windmill kick scene. Sucks to hear they are back, they didn't tour for a long time.

Never really liked the whole idea of "Hardcore Dancing" at shows (2-steps, arm flares, etc, etc). The first time I saw someone performing those actions, I thought to myself, "what the fukk is this guy smoking for breakfast? Is he trying to fly or is he mentally ill?" In my opinion, it just makes you look really pathetic...to each their own I guess.

No offense, but this story is about half as lame as The Rockstar Ramblings...which is still pretty lame.
