Final moments of the Abbey

ABBSpitzz.jpg - 100.17 K      Wow the Abbey close was a great night!! It was so much fun, it's just too bad its because the Abbey was closing!! I got there with BeatGirl and Michele around 9:20 and it was packed and it remained packed the whole night. Everyone was in great spirits though and friendly and there was a really cool feeling among everyone. Some unfortunate things sometimes brings out the best in people I guess.
Because there was an electric energy running through the whole night every band was at their best!! Or maybe it's because I had had a few glasses of wine before getting to the Abbey…either way it seemed really great!!
They ran out of alcohol at around 12 or 1 I think but people kept going on and being crazy despite the lack of booze. During the Konks set the guys in the bands started smoking, I mean hey why not, what are they gonna do shut the place down???

      And for the last set, Coffin Lids, people started piling up on the stage until there was literally no more room for another person!! Everyone was singing and screaming and stage diving.
After the last set ever played on the Abbey stage, people milled around, it being like a party atmosphere. They also started ripping the beer signs and stuff off the walls. I finally left at 2 but it seems to me things would probably have gone on for some time. It was quite a night and we are out an awesome club….damn.
I have TONS of photos and we will have a page up in no time so you can see all what was going on during the night if you weren't there. Or if you don't' remember what went on….like some people I know!
