When we first heard stories of Brazilian favela rave/fight clubs wherein half the crowd attacks the other half, we said, "Givvus some of that." Well, American rock band Aiden got all multiculti and dedicated part of its Taste of Chaos set Saturday, Feb. 17, at Bill Graham Civic to a segment where lead singer Wil Francis commands the crowd to split and separate twenty feet down the middle. When he orders the collapse of the gap and launches into "I Set My Friends on Fire," about a thousand kids promptly start to kick the living shit out of each other. Many hardcore fans laughed at the tweeny-bopper-pandering lineup this year, dubbing it "Taste of Gay-os." But when I look at these little bastards seething atop each other like vicious forest ants, I must beg to differ. Video after the jump.
