! I saw Crash Worship about a year and a half ago at Emo's in Austin, Tx
. Emo's was packed. Emo's contains an outside and indoor stage
went to the outdoor stage, but my friend and I believed they were playing inside. The indoor stage had equipment sprawled across it. The show
was billed as The Crash Worship Marching Band. The anticipation escalated, I had never seen them.
Enter the sound of drums
The few people inside, turned to see a marching filing inside of Emo's.......
Thunder filled the air!
All at once, seven drummers began pound
ing their drums while four girls led them with baton
s and whistle
s. They reached the stage where a few of us stood. Emo's was wall to wall with a crazy mass.
the music stopped, the band looked at everyone from the stage.......
Perfectly timed, the drums exploded again, and the girls tore off their tops. The entire show was drums! I can't recall much of what happened inside. I really stopped thinking logically and acted purely on instinct. Instinct told me to dance. The drummers seemed like Energizer bunnies gacked out on speed. While they played, the topless girls poured wine, glitter, syrup, flour, and all sorts of crap all over us in the front. Everybody in the fucking house danced their ass off. Not MTV kinda dance, like tribal shit. Movement to the sound suppressing any kind of thought.
I don't know how long this went on. But the band filed out into the middle of the room and everyone danced around them. Then they preceded outside of Emo's onto Red River. So did the entire audience. Lots of clubs and bars stray across Red River, and they all vacated to see the crazy mass of people dancing in the streets. Naked women standing in truck beds, the marching band standing on cars, and 500 people forgetting they were part of society. This went on for roughly 15 minutes. About 20 blueboys on horses arrived with teargas, so the crowd dispersed. Cops reminded us really quick about sanity. The only thing I can say is, go see Crash Worship. Throw concert etiquette out the window and enjoy!
