Eyehategod at Bluebird Theater, 1/26/14

EYEHATEGOD at BLUEBIRD THEATER | 1/26/14 A couple of people tried to heckle Eyehategod, but Mike Williams was took the flak deftly and turned it into comedy; you had to hand it to him. Someone yelled out, "I'm bored." Williams told the guy to come down front where there was lots of free cocaine. He then said, "You came here and paid eight hundred dollars for a ticket and you stand back there? Killer friends. Come down here. You only live once." In reality, there was nothing boring about this show beginning to end.
