YAITW making a bloody mess (via @kc_xiii)

Charlotte black n' crust collective Young and in the Way went full The Shining on Sunday, "spraying" pig's blood during the Empire Tattoo showcase at Lexington Avenue Brewery in Asheville, North Carolina. This caused the venue to shut down and call the Buncombe County Health Department to assess the damage. Lexington Avenue Brewery general manager Benjy Greene said (via WLOS):

After a private music event in our back room, we voluntarily closed and contacted the Buncombe County Health department to advise us the best cleanup procedure for our back room.
Young and in the Way have yet to issue a statement, though Empire Tattoo have apologized for the event:
Though the actions and result of Sunday nights show were out of our hands we are sorry another local business is suffering. We have been in contact with Buncombe County health inspector over the matter and are aware that the "contamination" was confined to the back room of the LAB. We were also made aware by the health inspector that LAB was given "go ahead" to re open as soon as they wished without re inspection. Our mission for this party was to celebrate our business and customers with another local business. We hope for everyones sake we can all move forward from this in a positive manner. We appreciate everyones support on this matter.
Lexington Avenue Brewery hopes it can have the stage cleaned by Saturday for the David Bowie cover band Wham Bam Bowie Band. Godspeed, cleaning crew. Remember, we can be heroes.

Young and in the Way will be in NYC opening the BV-presented stop of the Oathbreaker and Cult Leader tour which happens July 24 at Acheron with Badr Vogu and the recently-added Meek Is Murder. Tickets are still available and the show is now 18+ (rather than 21+). Luckily, Brooklyn doesn't have any history with bands wielding pig's blood. Nope. None.

You can check out a local news report -- which might as well be presented by Perd Hapley -- regarding the incident, below...

I know this site is pretty much "Vegan" in name only, but why the fuck are you reporting on shit like this. You're presenting this as if it's funny and it's not.

5:05 Guessing you haven't been on the site long, Chainey and Sacher are some new, very terrible writing interns who got rejected from vice, buzzfeed, village voice, and pretty much every other awful sassy publication website who try to bring that shit here.

Bring back the hummus.

BV has become a joke in the last couple of years. This type of story isn't anything new.

Half the band is vegan so whatever.... stage antics

Yes, making sausage is sometimes messy.

Also, at least get your horror movie references right. Pigs blood, The Shining...really!?!?

5:10 - I've been here long enough to remember them complaining about a picture of Joanna Newsom in a fur hat. They didn't used to cover shit like this let alone make light of it. I just think it's stupid to have a picture of pigs blood on a site that used to at least pretend to disagree with the mistreatment of animals.

"Half the band is vegan so whatever"

Oh, why didn't you say so? That makes it all better. Someone killed the pigs, but since this sausages are so ethical they refused to eat the pigs after.

Chainey's writing is legit! It's funny, engaging and entertaining. Plenty of hyperlinks, quotes are indented, the man quotes Bowie lyrics. What else do you want mthrfckrs? Infinitely better than Sachercore. Godspeed Ian!

Everyone who owns/works at Lexington Avenue Brewery is a total pussy. The fact that these morons pulled this stunt and left walking proves it.

"Guys, guys ... don't get me wrong, I like 'dress up' as much as the next guy, but lately I've been thinking we need to bring it up to the next level ..."

"You mean like we all come out?"

"NO! DUDE! My mom would kick me out if she found that out. What we do together is special, but no that's not what I meant. I meant something like, I dunno, maybe something involving pig's blood?"

"Do we have to eat the pig after? 'Cause, you know, I'm vegan, man."

"No, we don't eat the pig. We just use the blood. We spray it all over the crowd. Won't that be cool?"

Hey remember in The Shining when there is pig's blood

12:04 yup. If any of the clowns had pulled a stunt like that at my business it would have been Louisville Slugger time. Half that blood would be theirs.

Metalhead here. Don't lump these guys in with us. These guys are terrible. The metal scene is generally nice and most metalheads and sweethearts.

Also, not a vegan, but there's a lot of vitriol in these comments. I get you have your views. How about live and let live?
