im not a big fan of piebalds last few records, but i LOVED them before that. i did a piebald poster and they gave me a bunch of free merch and were really cool dudes. they did remember me from shows in massachusetts and brought me backstage and wined and dined me. they ARE definately bostonians though...
yeah. i played a show with them. granted, we were a really bad band, but even before we played they treated us like dirt. they didn't give us any merch table space - hey, they had to display three fucking tables worth of shirts and stickers and pins and whatnot. when we introduced ourselves, they shrugged their shoulders and went back to reading their books. a friend in my band seriously LOVED piebald (for whatever reason). he walked out of their set in disgust. they spent the entire night bitching about canada. they broke my amplifier (fuckers). their music sucked ass. by the end of their set, i think there was about 20 people in the audience, 10 of which were in the opening bands just waiting to haul their gear out of there. i'm proud to say that the promoter came up to us after the show and thanked us, because we, a band who had only played one admittedly awful show at that point, managed to outdraw piebald, and pay for their ridiculous guarantee (if i'm not mistaken, it was something crazy like $500 us. might not sound like a lot, but when the fucking band draws like 30 people, it's pretty ridiculous. he ended up refusing to pay them the full sum, and instead sent some money our way. we just passed it off to the other bands on the bill that actually deserved it. fucking piebald.
this poster is AMAZING and has nothing to do with piebald. mr. dwitt, i'm sorry for venting in this poster's space...seriously, great job!!
wow, i've never seen this but it is AMAZING.
melismatics behaviour sounds to me like that of the worst band in the world - piebald. i hate asshole bands. especially asshole bands that aren't good enough to act like assholes.
so, it came to my attention this evening, that The Melismatics are supreme assholes.
Heard stories from this shows events, really insulted my friends in Superhopper, not to mention the other bands that played.
Not cool at all. :evil:
