We played an amazing festival this weekend. It was a totally sick time. We met tons of crazy awesome people, although I almost fucked it all up. Our tour manager and I got in Wednesday night, before the other bands. We wanted to get there in time to get to know all of the panelists before anyone else…don’t want you to think it had anything to do with getting extra time to drink. DUH!womens fashion

Anyway, the next day, everyone started showing up and that’s when everything started to pop off. After drinking and getting to know a bunch of important people, it was time to head back to the hotel. We ended up meeting and making friends with a band (that will remain nameless) and catching a ride with them. As soon as we got back we remembered that we had a half of jug of 90 proof vodka and a twelve pack of Colt 45. So, of course, everyone headed back to our room. For the next hour or so we all hung out, power drinking and laughing our asses off (so hard my face hurt the next day).womens fashion
I then got bored and convinced a couple people from the other band to go for a walk with me around the hotel. About ten minutes later we stumbled across an indoor swimming pool. The door was closed and locked on the outside but I could see that if I jumped the fence, the door to go into the actual pool was propped open. Now, if there is one thing that I love, it’s a pool in the middle of the night. So I said “fuck it” and climbed the fence. I wasn’t paying attention to what everyone else was doing. I made it in, took my clothes off, and jumped in. I noticed that the others that I was with were gone, but I didn’t care. I just kept swimming by myself.

The next thing I knew, the manager from the hotel barges in screaming all sorts of crazy shit. Telling me she called the ambulance and the cops, and that I was getting kicked out. I got right out of the pool and put my clothes on. I wondered why she would call the ambulance and cops on me for swimming, but soon came to realize it wasn’t for me!
Turns out one of the dudes was so fucking drunk that he thought it would be a good idea to jump off the 3rd floor balcony onto the cement. Do you realize how far up that is? Dude broke his arm and apparently some ribs and had to get rushed to the hospital. I saw him being taken away on one of those crazy stretchers. All fucking strapped in and shit. Dude had to go directly into surgery…it was so bad.

Also, either before or after this, they also thought it was a good idea to trash the fuck out of their hotel room. You know like the shit Aerosmith and Led Zepplin used to do? Smashing in the TV, flipping up the mattresses. All that shit. Crazy, crazy stuff. The hotel manager screams at me to go my hotel room and to stay in my room until she tells me what what will happen next.
I then called the head of the festival, and of course there was no answer, as it was 5 ‘o clock in the morning. So I just went to sleep praying that I wouldn’t get lumped in with this craziness. But, of course, I did. I get a call that morning from the person I had called to explain myself. They weren’t happy. I had to apologize to 10 different people and beg for them to let me stay on the show. Thankfully they let us stay on (after everyone and their mom begged them to). I’ve never felt so small in my life. Turns out not only did the other band get kicked off the show but they also had some big shot drummer from LA on a flight already to come and fill in for their set, who of course, had to turn around and go back as soon as they landed. Whoops!
Moral of the story? Don’t get so fucked up that you do something stupid like jump of buildings and trash hotel rooms that are being payed for by someone else. Or at least if you do… Don’t get hurt or caught!
