More Photos from Cro-Mags Stabbing at Webster Hall Tonight

Posted on: July 6th, 2012 at 11:07 pm by

It was gonna be a cathartic night of headbanging and moshing at Webster Hall with a great hardcore lineup as part of the inaugural CBGB Festival – VOD, Cro-Mags, and Sick of it All. Instead, the venue turned into a crime scene. As we exclusively reported earlier this evening, founding Cro-Mags member Harley Flanagan reportedly stabbed two people before being tackled to the ground five feet from our perch. Security swarmed and beat the ever-loving piss out of him – lots of punching, stomping, etc. Then a patrol of NYPD blue (both uniformed and plainclothes) carted him away in cuffs. The violence transpired upstairs in the VIP balcony section.

All this went down just before Cro-Mags were to hit the stage, shortly before 8 PM.

GlueHC is also reporting that one of the two victims stabbed was allegedly Cro-Mags bassist Mike “The Gook” Couls (also formerly of Cold As Life and Sworn Enemy).
