The HUMANS creative team (Keenan Marshall Keller, Tom Neely, and Kristina Collantes + our awesome intern/helper monkey/pin-up artist, Carmen Monoxide) hit Bakersfield, CA last weekend and got to go Apeshit with friends and fans!!!
We hit BAKO early to meet up with photographer/journalist Joseph Michael Ruiz at The MINT for a quick interview and some drinks... Luckily their open at 6 a.m..... so by 10:30 when we arrived, the place was already hoppin'.
After a short interview, a few rounds and a couple pics, we made our way to our hotel lobby and watched a drunk woman puke all over the floor (sorry no pics) while cowboys sung shitty ditties around the fireplace. A PBR (professional bull riding) tournament was taking place next door to our hotel and people were raging. Then ZIG-ZAGS showed up and we hit a noodle joint before the show.
The party started at Babylon with us doing some signings and drinking a bit more...
1st up Douche Metal brought the thunder. (featuring the nites promoter David Michael Lopez)
Then The Sorority powered thru a killer set!!!
Then our good friends Zig-Zags killed!!!!
Zig-Zags fuckin' rule. Heavy shredders. They kill. Vid by Joseph Michael Ruiz.
The next day we awoke a bit hungover with our ears ringing still and made our way to the Bakersfield Comic-Con!
The WHOLE weekend was a blast... We wished we'd taken more photos but thankfully, Joseph Michael Ruiz documented both events and let us use his photos! His are all the good looking ones!!! Thanks Joseph!
Also, thanks to David for helping put together the show and having Douche Metal play.
Thanks toThe Sorority for coming out and playing the gig! Great to meet those guys!
Much love to Zig-Zags for making the trip and raging with us! Those dudes are a blast!
& BIG thanks to Steve Wyatt for hooking us up and inviting us to Bakersfield Comic-Con!! Maybe we can come back next year??!!!
and tons of love to all the fans whom came out to support at either event!! HUMANS FOR LIFE!
