our second or third show ever at a house called 412 douglas in kalamazoo. we didn't know anyone there. we played last and by the time we played everyone was real drunk and while we were playing everyone was going crazy, just bouncing off the walls. when we got done playing our 6 or 7 song set, all of the drunk people wouldn't let us leave until we played more so we broke into a sunny day real estate song just for kicks. all these kids grabbed the microphone and just screamed all the words. we finished the night trying to destroy these gigantic plastic bunny decorations that were in the basement where we played.
