Heres the deal.
Last Friday (13) I went to a gig at my local recreation centre (bridgend rec) for a night out.
My dad drove me and a few mates there after getting some alcohol for us on the way.
We arrived at the gig and walked to this bridge thing to drink before we went in.
About four swigs into my first can, 2 cops turn up around the corner. Not wanting to risk being arrested we neither fought nor ran. Our alcohol was ‘confiscated’. No doubt those cops got drunk after their shift.
Already pissed off, we went to the gig. After queing for like 10 minutes I realised that about half the people I went down with hadn’t even got in due to the place being full.
I have to admit though, it was an awesome gig. Great bands, (all heavy/death metal) awesome moshpits and even a wall of death.
I left the gig early with some of my friends to meet up with those who didn’t get in.
So we met up and were all chilling outside when this big group of chavs (and yes I use the stereotype here because they fit it oh so well) just ran up and punched one of my friends .
Now understand that there was LOADS more of them than us and we were not prepared at all.
Everybody ran and then we realised that we’d left 2 people behind.
Nobody wanted to risk going back so me and Sam Webb ran it alone to try and find them. At this point there was like 30 of the chavs.
Pointless attempt really and we ended up running, but we had to try.
Even more of them turned up in cars.
So, the fights broke out and by the end of the night (after we’d all met up and left) there was literally fighting all around bridgend.
The next day I heard rumors that somebody had been killed in it and I didn’t believe it at all. People like to talk.
But today I saw in a newspaper that 2 people from the gig had been stabbed, one fatally.
So now theres probably going to be all out war or something. Maybe the gigs will be shut down. Some poor guys dead now.
And all because some people idea of a good time is picking fights with people THEY DON’T EVEN KNOW.
