    Official 2015 Pillow Fight band?

    by DJ Old Man Stares » Mon Jun 09, 2014 7:29 am

    Every year it seems there's a new tradition. 2011 had the pool moshpit, 2012 had the elevator moshpit, Barge and 2013 had the Lounge Chair Mosh pit, and last year had one of the most bizarre things I have ever seen. Last year, I remember Symphony X we're playing a bit late due to delays and while I love Symphony X and can't stand Raven, I have never seen Raven before. Leaving midway through Symphony X's spot on performance I went to watch Raven and while they were good, I still fell asleep for about a song. When I woke up about five feet in front of me, I saw about 3-5 sweaty dudes hitting each other with pillows in the mosh area of the Spectrum Lounge. I guess it started out with a few hot chicks, but by the time I saw anything, the pit degraded into sweaty dudes, which I guess makes sense for a Raven show. :lol:

    Anyway, Raven won the first ever "pillow fight award." Who will it be this year? Perhaps none of the bands announced so far will win the award, I don't really see any of them as "pillow fight material." For that matter though, what makes a band "pillow fight material?" What is the appropriate "pillow fight venue?" For that matter, why did the pillow fight have to occur during Raven of all times? Let's analyze these factors and see what will happen with the next cruise.

    Also, I feel like I should post a disclaimer. I am in no way endorsing throwing pillows at the bands. I think that's a dick move and if it happens again I'm sure that's a great way to guarantee that we never get to do fun things like this again. Also, while we're on that subject, if you throw glass around...you're a dick! Now that I've said that, lets have some fun!! :D

    Also, it is not my intention in any way to turn this into another lack of bands thread. We already have like 20 of those. Trying to keep it fun and positive. :D

    I heard from someone that the band was the one spreading the word to bring pillows to their set for a pillow fight. I am kind of sad that I missed it.

    The official pillow fight band is ORIGIN!!! I guess the band want this and its a one time thing. Any other pillow fights during other sets are henceforth deemed FALSE!

    Anyway, this is going to be awesome!!! :shred:

    Yes, I believe the band specifically requested the pillow fight for the 1st set only. Hopefully it'll be on the first day.

    Yes Brian, death to false pillow fights. :lol:
