Liferuiner attacked in Ohio

Friday, September 04, 2009 9:57 PM PT

Liferuiner, clearly no strangers to drama, were the targets of some troublemakers following a show at Jazz Central in Dayton, OH this week. Ultimately, the melee resulted in a few minor injuries. Here's a statement from the band:

"Before anyone gets the wrong impression, and runs their mouth to Lambgoat who obviously does not give a shit about anything concerning this band, here's what really happened in Dayton, Ohio on Wednesday night...

"We showed up at Jazz Central, the only people who were there were our friends in The Gun Show, the promoter and someone working with him, and 2 girls that we know from the columbus area. The opening band Did you mean, Australia shows up, and in the time it took them to play their set some other kids had arrived. During our set 2 or 3 of these kids, one wearing a ski mask started dancing like assholes, throwing chairs, being overly disrespectful which is something none of us are down with, so we already anticipated there being a problem later on. Once our set was finished I ran outside to check and make sure no damage was done to our vehicles. There was a group of 12-13 kids outside by their cars yelling shit about us being faggots or whatever so I ran back inside to make sure everyone was aware, in the time it took me to go inside and back out, Kevin got in a scuffle with one of the kids, and had him on the ground, he was pulled off by security and then all hell broke loose. We were completely outnumbered so while trying to square up with 1 kid at a time we had to worry about multiple kids 'jumping' us from behind. Our guitar player Dave was knocked to the ground and kicked in the head, so he's got a few small cuts and some bruising around his left eye. Our tour manager Billy got hit in the head with a maglite and had to get 6 stitches which is why our band had to go to the hospital that night. Myself, Kevin and the others are all fine despite the show these kids put on. I was hit by a car, struck in the back with a baseball bat, as well as Kevin being hit moments earlier.

"The whole thing ended with these kids trying to get in their cars as fast as possible and drive off in that smashed up Monte Carlo. An old school dude showed up and confirmed the list of names we were given as the kids who did it, he was mad cool, and explained how these kids have no affiliation with courage crew so please save yourself that drama.

"After about an hour, the cops showed up and said that 2 girls had been screaming about it at a gas station so they came, asked us if it was a problem with 'straight edge' lol, took our pictures and left.

"At the end of the day this is all we have to say about it, if you have 10 more people than us, and an assortment of weapons, don't fucking run... Be a fucking man and fight for what you wanted. We've never showed up trying to start fights, or provoke them, we respect all venues, promoters, and opening bands, but we are not going to run, ever, which is why that kid posted about it on twitter later on that night saying he was realizing how lucky he is or some stupid shit. We are not going to avoid Ohio on future tours, we are not going to run our mouths at upcoming shows or on message boards, we are not going to cry about this because were all super hurt. This is the truth, this is what happened to us, and it is what it is. Props to those kids for having the balls to even try, because most people only talk about it."

9/4/2009 10:06:12 PM

9/4/2009 10:36:23 PM
merry Christmas lambgoat

9/4/2009 10:40:27 PM
Puts money on the fact that they actually got beat way harder than they are admitting. Glad someone finally did it.

9/4/2009 10:40:33 PM
"we respect all venues, promoters.." aren't these the guys who destroyed a venue to such a degree it had to shut down? got what you deserved, but not enough.

9/4/2009 10:42:39 PM
oh snap, liferuiner named dropped lambgoat...be proud.

9/4/2009 10:44:24 PM
"I was hit by a car" That's all I gotta quote.

9/4/2009 10:46:43 PM
This is the most dramatic band on Lambgoat. http://lambgoat.com/news/archives.aspx?search=Li

9/5/2009 12:31:38 AM
fck those stupid kids. Liferuiner dudes have done nothing to deserve this. Its all new repectable dudes. fck the haters

9/5/2009 12:38:03 AM
lambgoat goes all TMZ and shit. photos!

9/5/2009 12:42:27 AM
If they were such respectable dudes, I doubt they'd join that band. And way to think Courage Crew would give two shits about your gay fcking band. Someone finish them next time.

9/5/2009 12:47:39 AM

9/5/2009 12:49:31 AM
i agree, theyre all new dudes. if they wanted to be tough why did they run. gays

9/5/2009 12:50:52 AM
I dont give a fck about Liferuiner getting beat up, but jesus, kids at shows have no balls anymore. They NEVER settle shit one on one. NEVER.

9/5/2009 12:52:50 AM
New dudes or not, they deserved it. Why would you WANT to join a band with the kind of reputation they have? Expect shit like this to happen. Don't like it? Quit. This was a long time coming.

9/5/2009 12:59:04 AM
pssy bullshit. ALL the current LR guys and their TM are nice dudes. Those 18 OHioans must be super soft if they needed bats, pipes, and brass knuckles to take on 5 dudes and still left bloody with a busted car. Fail Train goes chooch chooch.

9/5/2009 1:01:10 AM
lol @ people defending this band

9/5/2009 1:08:26 AM
This is what you get for stealing this band from the people who actually started it. Sorry guys, but you diserved it.

9/5/2009 1:16:23 AM
liferuiner should stay the fck away from long island you covershitband

9/5/2009 1:30:37 AM

9/5/2009 1:53:58 AM
so xTUFFx, funny and stupid all at the same time

9/5/2009 1:54:21 AM
fck this band, regardless of how 'respectable' the new members are. That's the same as saying some neo-nazis you met were respectable. Also, who the fck names their band Did You Mean Australia?

9/5/2009 2:28:28 AM
don't maglite me bro

9/5/2009 2:37:42 AM
sgt_crumbles...what do neo nazis have anything to do with the new members of LR being good dudes? you are going out on a limb...and that branch broke.

9/5/2009 3:05:29 AM
Whether its Liferuiner or not, 13 on 5 is gay pssy shit. fck Dayton kids.

9/5/2009 7:44:00 AM
@gymclassjerk not out on a limb at all. same thing as saying neo-nazis aren't bad dudes because they weren't directly responsible for the holocaust. fck this band everything they've ever stood for and anyone in it. i will now rep ohio harder

9/5/2009 8:49:01 AM
another episode of "as the gay turns"

9/5/2009 9:15:22 AM
This is the most gay thing i've ever heard. People actually care this much about hardcore?

9/5/2009 9:55:18 AM
stupidest fcking gay shit trash I have ever read

9/5/2009 10:33:21 AM
i like this band, and this was a shitty event and everything...but why the fck post it on lambgoat of all the places in the world?

9/5/2009 10:42:33 AM
best fcking news i've heard all day. only if johnny oc was there with them....

9/5/2009 10:44:58 AM
and for "if they wanted to be tough, why did they run". its cuz they didn't wanna go to jail. who wants to get arrested.

9/5/2009 10:58:09 AM

9/5/2009 11:40:59 AM
best news ever... coming from an ohio goater

9/5/2009 11:49:02 AM
yet another reason why all hardcore bands and hardcore kids fcking fail.

9/5/2009 12:09:01 PM
Why would anyone ever give "props" to their enemies?! That's a sign of weakness right there! Liferuiner giving respect to them earns just the opposite in my book. Get fcked.

9/5/2009 12:27:16 PM
Bahahaha. Fun.

9/5/2009 1:12:45 PM
i love my friends.and if im not mistaken there were not more then 6 of them. so i think saying there were 10 more then you guys would be a lie,wouldnt it. i thinks its funny

9/5/2009 1:13:33 PM
This is great.

9/5/2009 1:22:20 PM
in Ohio no one can hear you scream

9/5/2009 1:39:02 PM
"mad cool"

9/5/2009 1:49:43 PM

9/5/2009 2:54:40 PM

9/5/2009 4:45:41 PM
"we respect all venues, promoters, and opening bands" thats bullshit. lambgoat needs to stop posting LR news, they're only getting fame through drama, they have no real music talent, shit like this proves it.

9/5/2009 4:50:07 PM
the kid with the Maglite sounds cool...

9/5/2009 5:02:42 PM

9/10/2009 11:30:12 AM
Gives Liferuiner cred for getting their asses kicked, even though they suck. Whatever kids did this need to man up and fight them one on one, this jumping people shit is ridiculous.

9/12/2009 10:00:42 PM
this is the queerist shit i seen

12/10/2011 10:31:51 PM
This shits so funny, i'm friends with a dude who's band played this show, and liferuiner got the SHIT kicked out of them super hard. but they deserved it from what i heard, and apparently it's because it wasn't the original liferuiner from canada, and they were stealing symbols and shit from some crew. and they suck. hahahaha
