Recall the St. Patricks Day show at Lomax Lodge, in which the singer of Galactoid punched Matt Bort in the face, as the rest of his band offered a breakdown for the brawl that ensued. An hour later, Mehkago N.T. took the stage and some kid got his face shoved through that mirror that no longer hangs on the west wall. Jucifer's recent show in Jacksonville rivals the aforementioned show in brutality (and dwarfs it in volume). No one's face was shoved through anything, but by the end of the show drummer Edgar Livengood's blood was smeared on the wall of amps behind him in the shapes of upside down crosses. Despite the unrelentingly brutal nature of their live show, Ed and Amber are two of the nicest people in show business.
