You saw this press release coming: Alan Braxe insists he did not urinate onstage at DNA Lounge in San Francisco, as was alleged by the venue’s promoters yesterday. With he-said/she-said incidents like these, it’s impossible to know the full details of the story, so we’ll abstain from commentary for now.
In the latest development, Braxe offered the following response to the allegations on his label’s website:
I want to personally address the rumors that are going around various online media and press, in which I am accused of “pissing on a back-wall curtain” during a DJ set in San Francisco.
Firstly, these rumors are FALSE.
I DID NOT and WOULD NOT ever urinate on or damage a venue’s or anybody else’s property. The accusation of a “bladder problem” is also false, and offensive!
These lies have been fabricated, twisted and spread by somebody at the venue in order to generate extra interest in that space, in what appears to be a very inappropriate PR stunt.
This personal attack on my nature and artistic image is distasteful, hurtful and it is something that I will be taking very seriously.
Apart from this unpleasant gossip, I really enjoyed having the opportunity to play again in the U.S. and Canada and want to sincerely thank everybody who came to the shows and made them such fun and successful nights.
I also want to thank all the promoters for inviting me and Jeffrey Paradise and his team for a great night in SF.
I’m really looking forward to returning to San Francisco in the future and I wish you all the best over the holiday season.
Sorry Alan, we didn’t mean to offend you – we were just taking the piss.
