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).

    Ok first of all the dude who ate the homeless dudes face wasn’t on bath salts the cops did a tox report and ruled that out. Secondly I think this dude was just drunk high and pissed off that his old band had the “audacity” to play a gig without him and went bat shit crazy. Case closed.
