Let's get Hula-weird!



  • In honor of Spafford making their debut at Hulaween, where things are bound to get weird...
    Let's all join in and have some fun - even if we can't be there.

    Here is a little 'game' I like to play, especially at festivals where you never know what is going to happen.

    What is the weirdest/funniest/strangest thing you have heard when out to see Spafford
    (pre-show prepping, during the mind blowing moment or after party - doesn't have to be just while you are at the show).
    You can give context if you really feel it is needed...

    It is sometimes the little things that make a show or festival stick in your mind. Like this tiger just chillin' in the rafters at the Bloomington Bluebird show
    on 10-13-2017

    So... bring on the weird things you have heard/overheard... or even seen during your Spafford experiences!

    Here, I will go first!

    @Kyle-Burbank dude, do we tell them about the Papadosio Motorcycle Rail Rider from Cambridge? Can it even be properly explained? It was weird for sure...just not sure I can convey the scene properly...šŸ¤£

    The most amazing totally on-the-wall thing I've seen at a Spafford show: @RadiantDarkness dancing in a wall-mounted cage at American Beauty on 12/30/16. Yes, you heard me correctly. a cage mounted on the wall in which dancing was RadiantDarkness. Does anyone have pics of that glorious late night?

    @Johnny-Love
    Yes Love! That was amazing! I've never seen anything like it, and, despite having the cages on the wall, it was obvious that nobody else in that club had ever seen anything like it either! Radiant Darkness is truly an inspiration.

    The craziest thing I've ever seen at a Spafford show is probably really someone else's story. Let me explain.

    I wanted to change into some sort of crazy outfit last year during intermission at the Last Exit show on April 21st. (I wouldn't have known that without this site. THANKS Spaffnerds.com!) The bathroom was totally full. I don't want to get in specifics about the bathroom shenanigans, but suffice it to say there was no room for changing.

    So I turn around, and I see the owner in the hallway. I know him from helping set up and whatnot, so I ask if there's a place I can change. He gets a puzzled look, so I give him a sly/goofy smile, and he shows me to a back room. It's just a small, dark room with back of the bar stuff.

    I get out my stuff. I change into my shirt and cape, and I take off my shoes, and drop my pants. I'm grabbing my wife's leggings, and the door opens, light flips on, and a guy walks halfway in before I can say anything.
    "I'm in here! Don't come in!"
    "Customers aren't allowed in here! What are you doing?"
    "Brannon said I could change in here."
    "OH, IS THAT PETE?! Oh, okay! Hahaha! I thought you were some couple back here or something. I've got to change this tank out. Can you just get me when you're done?"

    I think I was probably the strangest thing that guy's seen at a Spafford show! Then again, maybe not. It's not everyday you get caught with your pants down in the back room of a bar, and the staff just acts like it's normal. šŸ˜„

    Oh yeah! If you know @RadiantDarkness you'll know he dances to the beat of his own drummer. Dude was fearless up there and the next day Brian was a bit upset that the whole room was watching @RadiantDarkness and not him! LOL!
