So last night, Halloween, I saw Torche again.

They were pretty fantastic. So loud that there were moments where I didn’t recognize the songs even though I’ve heard them a million times and seen them a bunch of times.

The guitarist, Juan, recognizes me from Miami even though he has no clue who I am. he’s like “Hey dude, stick around. we’re going to a party later” and I’m all bored and I still don’t know anyone in this town so I say “okay.” He’s like “hey come have a drink with us” so I follow him into the bar. Then he says “hey follow me backstage” so I follow him backstage. Then he leaves me alone to talk to someone else.

I’m in the backstage area with members of Clouds (one of the openers) and some other band. They’re passing around a joint. I say “uh… hi.” One guy is having a beer, and one guy is having a cocktail. Probably whiskey. The bassist from Torche is back there and he’s dressed like Subzero or Scorpion from Mortal Kombat but red. I don’t know who that’s supposed to be. I’ve never met him. I shake his hand.

Security guard comes backstage and looks at all of us. He points at the guy with the beer and says “you’re out. come on.” and the other stoned guys are all “why dude?” and the security guard’s like “you’re not supposed to be drinking back here.” he pulls the guy with the beer out and throws him out of the club. The rest of us are all there, one of us has a joint and one guy with the whiskey and we’re like “uhhhh.”

Everyone walks out and leaves me with the roach. Fearing the security guard’s return I put it on the table and leave. I see guitarist Juan and he’s like “dude come to the party” but I have no clue where this party is and they’re gonna take forever to load up. So I go out to the stage and say bye to the drummer (he’s the only guy I really know, he’s dressed like GG Allin) and I go outside to contact this dude because he invited me to a party but never texted me the address. I text him that I still need the address and he doesn’t get back to me. I go home.

On my way home, car full of people pulls up next to me. This girl on the passenger side rolls down her window and says “This is a citizen’s arrest.”
I shrug and say “okay, why?”
and she says “For driving a PT Cruiser, motherfucker” and they speed off, laughing.

The end. Wah wahhhhh
