Metal Band Shuts Down North Carolina Brewery After Spraying Pig Blood on Audience

Posted June 26th, 2014 @ 10:16am

An Asheville, North Carolina brewery was forced to close for several days in order to clean up the pig's blood that a metal band sprayed on patrons.

Young and in the Way played a show in the backroom of Lexington Avenue Brewery on Sunday night.  According to the Asheville Citizen-Times, the show was the "Empire Tattoo Party" which featured three bands.  See a photo below.


According to LAB's co-owner Mike Healy, the venue had no prior knowledge of the stunt. He added:

"After the incident, they took all their equipment and wiped it down and left the place a disaster zone.  Our staff was there until 2 or 3 in the morning cleaning and the next day...we might have to rip out the stage.  It's a very dire situation."

The brewery/restaurant says the incident was nowhere near the kitchen area and there is no concern for food safety.  They plan to reopen on Thursday.
