This World Is A Really Fucked Up Place

Posted by: Frank Giaramita (12/08/05)
Last night, at Skrappy's in Tucson, AZ a man in his 20's, was allegedly shot to death while attending a Shattered Realm and Donnybrook show. The fight broke during out between two (or more) groups of people during Donnybrook's last song. Following the fight, the group(s) were thrown out of the venue and that's when all hell broke loose. According to sources, weapons such as hammers, machetes, gun(s) and brass knuckles were involved. Details are vague at the moment and I don't want to accidentally drop names of people who really weren't involved. Check out a video news report on the incident right hereand read a witness account below. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the victim... a night of enjoyment should never turn this ugly.

One Person's Account On The Violence At Last Night's Donnybrook ShowSo, donnybrook was playing their last song and they told everyone to move and start dancing so my friends in on my honor run in and like 5 guys from FSU didnt want tucson kids dancing, so they beat the shit out of him.
So these guys from tucson (names removed) jump in to get them off, and (name removed) got his head split open and everyone was fucking eachother up.

Then the lady that owns skrappys got on stage and said thats it the shows over and FSU was like get off stage you fat bitch blah blah, started throwing the speakers on the floor and shit and then said everybody clear the fuck out we've got a machine gun blah blah, so everyone runs outside. Someone from FSU(some people are saying it was the lead singer of shattered realm but idk) chased (name removed) to his car, (name removed) got in and the FSU guy broke his car window open with a machetti and said "you know youre fucking dead right?" and (no name) pushed his gun up and shot the guy fired 4 shots.

So everyone in skrappys is in lockdown and they arent letting anyone leave and like, all the FSU guys are staring down the tucson kids talking shit.

And the lead singer of black my heart was talking to my friend (no name)(who witnessed fucking everything) and said he better not say shit to the cops and that if he opens his mouth he's fucked too. "

This is all I know, everything is still fuckin vague, kids are still in skrappys being investigated

Wednesday as Tucson police were interviewing dozens of witnesses and sorting out exactly who did the shooting, although they did not believe the shooter was on the loose, Batista said. Batista could not release any information about the others who were injured in the fight, but said that there were other weapons involved aside from the gun used in the shooting.

That is SO messed up. I keep reading about these kind of things happening in the states and it comes as a big shock because you don't get that kind of thing over here at shows. At least i've never heard anything about it or witnessed it.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the victims friends and family

It's just really upsetting to me. Like, music is supposed to be enjoyable. I could never ever imagine myself using it as a stomping ground for anything negative. For me, music was always an escape from the violence, aggression, and negativity in society... stuff like this should never happen. Never.

Well, I guess FSU is the new ICP. It sucks to know shows end up like this and now the venue maybe shut down.

And for the record, as of now, there are rumors that Joe hardcore was a victim.

but come on that's what hardcore is about right. Just like bradley hathaway says: "You get mad and start a fight right? I think I may, I think I might take my insecurities out on that punk in the pit tonight." the truth is no one has taken a stand to be against what is done at hardcore shows, most everyone advocates it. then when the situation escalates, something like this happens. i'd feel bad but its a product of the environment. if you've ever been to a hardcore show you know what its like there. this is just a step further. the bands don't help either. i found these lyrics on donnybrook's myspace:

You better recognize this is not your fight, or I just might bust another head tonight.


music isn't like it used to be. more people are becoming exposed to a wider variety of music, and they don't always have control that most people do. and situations like this happen because "BEING TOUGH" is what they think is right, no matter what the cost.
