Well, I never thought I'd see this. We've seen our hefty share of crazy in the moshpit over the years, but that's nothing compared to what happened Sound and Fury Festival this past weekend. Here is the report as it appeared on Lambgoat:
What really happened isn't exactly clear, but according to Santa Barbara Sheriff's Department, a "large fight" erupted at roughly 6:20pm. Strangely, it seems that the ruckus was partially precipated by someone riding a motorcycle into the pit area of the Earl Warren Showgrounds during a set by New York hardcore band Backtrack.
The show was eventually shut down, and some of the bands played ended up playing a house party not to far away. That show was also shut down after neighbors reported noise and loitering with the host arrested for violating a noise ordinance. Jeez! Here is a lovely video some citizen journalist took at the scene:
