"There were plenty of things those crowd-surfing at the Bouncing Souls show Thursday night at Webster Hall were wearing or holding on to that seemed like potential liabilities: glasses, hats, a backpack, a purse, a wheelchair.The Bouncing Souls completed their 2-night, 20th anniversary run at Webster Hall in NYC last night (Saturday, 8/21). The wheelchair incident happened on the first night, Friday (8/20), which is also when Lifetime and None More Black opened. More pictures and some videos from that show below...
During "Lean on Sheena," one of the Bouncing Souls' more agitated numbers, a few muscular young men toward the back of the crowd hoisted one of their friends, upright in his wheelchair, and thrust him forward. He rode the crowd, dozens of hands reaching upward to grip the tires, until he was deposited onstage, prompting the band's bass player, Bryan Kienlen, to exult, "That's Jersey right there for you!"

Brian missed None More Black and his camera broke at the show, so there's limited pics above, but more coverage from Friday when 7 Seconds played is coming soon...
