MUSIC MONDAY // Purity Ring
Purity Ring came into Boise on Friday night, and it was a night to remember!
For one thing, they had to stop the show halfway through their second song because some crazy tried jumping the barrier. I'd managed to keep my spot right near the front and had an amazing view the whole night. However, I do recall a young woman heavily pushing her way past me and the first row of people, and suddenly a wave of motion rippled out from the center, shoving over everyone as it expanded. A commotion from that area drew everyone's attention, and I saw the security guard dragging someone out of the front row and hauling the girl I'd seen earlier outside. She seemed really out of it and bewildered, and I wouldn't be surprised if drugs were involved.
Anyway, Purity Ring halted mid-lyrics and Megan hesitantly said into the microphone: "Um, I'm sorry, but I just want to make sure everything's alright..."
They then exited the stage until the issue was resolve before returning to finish out the night in the most fabulous way.
Also, after watching their show, I want nothing more than to invest in hundreds of light strands so I can dance in their magical glow every night...
*EDIT: I was back for another concert Sunday night and talked to a security guard about the incident that occurred, and he informed me the guy who had made that call to drag the girl out of the crowd had been fired. Yikes!
