Back around the turn of the century Toronto’s El Mocambo was ground zero for some of the best, most dangerous rock ‘n’ roll shows. The place was scuzzy and dirty and that was partially the point.
One night, while trying to climb onto the El Mo stage I tripped and dropped my glasses into a garbage can full of the filthiest nuclear bar sludge. It was a woeful experience fishing them out.
Dirty Ghosts lead singer Allyson Baker had a similar experience when a band member of the Killer Elite picked up the same garbage can and threw its contents all over the audience. She was part of that garbage slimed audience.
