Here’s hoping Kai can redeem himself this weekend. He has a show Saturday at the Starline, with a pretty solid lineup of bands.
Original post from 3/29:
I was not in attendance for Patrick Contreras’ show last night at Fulton 55, so I didn’t see the special guest performance by Fresno’s favorite hitchhiker. But a post in my Facebook feed this morning painted an interesting picture.
I am not going to name names but I was asked to play a show with a hatchet-weilding, YouTube sensation, hitchhiker. Listen, I’m glad he stepped in and saved a life, but his stupidity left me jaded. From destroying sound check, to yelling obscenities, to singing out of tune, to his non-guitar playing, to his drug-induced, missing-nueron mumblings, I had to walk off stage. I have too much respect for my craft …
… It’s sad to see him squandering his 15-minutes on drunken stupidity instead of trying to inspire real change. Shame on him and shame on all the people who leech off of his mediocrity.
I wondering if this surprises anyone, or if it’s a case of Kai being Kai.
FYI: Kai has been hanging around town for the last couple of days and has some kind of CD release show next weekend.
