I made him wear earplugs.
They were keying bumps of blow onstage.
Jimmy left the stage to puke in a back room between songs, at which point the other EHG members shared a collective glance and a shrug, then launched into an Outlaw Order song off their Legalize Crime EP, ("Byproduct of a Wrecked Society," if I remember correctly).
I saw them in December of 2010, but I barely remember it. It was right before I cut booze out of my diet, which means I was so blacked out that I produced gravitational lensing in the couch corner of The Earl in Atlanta. (I had forgotten that I'd seen them a second time until a few days ago.)
Fun fact: These three people were born on September 11th:
- My brother (turned 27, was at show)
- Brian Patton (EHG guitarist, age unknown, was at show)
- Wes Reynolds (39 (I think), was not at show. Old bassist for Hellstomper, also the dude who turned me on to EHG when I was 15, a mitzvah that probably contributed to my decision to make him the best man at my first wedding.)
('nother factoid: my brother was best man at my second wedding. So both of my best men were born on 9/11. Maybe if I get around to a round three, I'll call up Brian Patton and ask him. Never met him, nor spoken to him, so I expect to be shot down. Not planning on a third marriage, so it's okay.))
