Last night we were at a show, we had finished playing about an hour earlier and another band had taken the stage. It was so packed inside that people
were spilling out into the street. And you know what happens when THAT happens....
Two friends of mine, one which happened to be our bands guitarist, were sitting at a small table outside drinking cofee. My guitarist just so happens
to be extrtemely political like the rest of us, hence the fact that we are a political rock band. He was adorning his che guevera shirt, a favorite in
his collection of political jargon, actualy, we have a song about old che. ha!
Well, a cop comes up to them, looks my main man up and down and says, "Why are you wearing a che guevera shirt?" My friend, outspoken to say the
least, replied, "Because I choose to."
The cop looks at him and says, "What, so ARE you communist?"
WTF?!?!?!?!?! This is harassment, this pisses me off, and later that night we were talking together and a cop passed by. I grabbed my friends shirt
and said, "Dude, I love your shirt, che kicks ass, COMMUNISM RULES!"
