Pssssst, here’s a secret: people generally come to clubs to watch the DJ play music, not urinate onstage. For today’s installment in our Artist’s Guide to Pissing Off Club Owners, we turn to Alan Braxe and his pissy tendencies. Braxe allegedly turned around in the middle of his headlining set at DNA Lounge in San Francisco to urinate on a curtain, and promptly got thrown out. DNA Lounge tells the story (but first, did we miss any puns here? Urine charge of letting us know):
Turns out that our headlining DJ last night, Alan Braxe, has a bladder control problem. That’s the generous explanation for why he decided, in the middle of his DJ set, to turn around and piss on our back-wall curtain instead of using the restroom which is twenty feet away.
After his set, when we had tossed him out, he was aghast that we chose not to let him back in. We said that we’d be happy to let him in if he paid us what it was going to cost to have the curtain cleaned. He declined. Also he threatened to sue us. “For what?” I inquired. “Because I wouldn’t come out and talk to him,” Barry tells me.
Well, good luck with that.
What’s the strangest / most offensive thing you’ve even seen an artist do in concert?
