Coney Island #2: "Anarchy, Violence & Mayhem"
Looks like things got a little rowdy in Coney Island this weekend, at least, according to a dispatch from someone on scene. The action took place at Cha Cha's on the boardwalk where the band World Inferno played a show. According to reports, the crowd start tearing the bar apart. Here's the report that was in the email we got:
The band World Inferno played Cha-Cha’s in Coney Island last night but the show was stopped when the crowd started literally tearing apart the venue. From an eyewitness:The vid below is the crowd out on the boardwalk singing 'Anarchists are Pretty.' Definitely a different scene for Coney Island.
“The crowd caused several thousand dollars in damage in about ten minutes. The owner of the club asked the band to make an announcement to the audience to stop. Instead, the band broke into a song called ‘Zen And The Art of Breaking Everything in The Room’ and the audience did just that. Members of the audience pulled pieces of the ceiling and crowd-surfed with it, ripped out all the wiring from the ceiling, punched holes in the wall, broke all the ceiling fans, disco balls and light bulbs. One person got an entire light smashed in his face and had his nose ripped open…. The owner pulled the plug on the sound system (which may have been the worst idea ever). Meanwhile, the band grabbed their saxophones and led the kids outside pied-piper style. There, the audience began singing ‘Anarchists are Pretty’ until the police broke up the crowd.”
