Graveyard's opening act clocking YouTube hits for bloody on stage meltdown
Its January 7 show in Ames, Iowa ended with blood on stage and guitarist Parker Griggs being rushed to the hospital. You can see what happened in this YouTube clip. Griggs (pictured pre and post-scar above) is clocked squarely in the forehead by his own guitar, which (and here's the kicker) was wielded by his drummer (warning: there's slight profanity at the beginning). The video explains the situation. Griggs, the band's leader, quickly replaced the bassist and drummer the following day. This tour was scheduled to be both members last with the band anyway.
Graveyard, Radio Moscow, and Husky perform Wednesday at Tremont. Tickets are $12-$15 available at www.etix.com. Show starts at 9 p.m.
