I got hit in the face in the dark.
It was hard and above the left eye. The blow connected flush, flashed white, and my eyeball felt like jelly rolling out of my skull.
I can’t say “I got punched” or “I got kicked” because that would imply that I knew what hit me or where it came from. I had overextended myself into the Pit trying to get a photo of the headliner that night in The Underground, Chamber.
Stumbling to a dark corner after the blow, the eye watering and the pain rising, I smiled.
As always the Hardcore Crowd & Bands found playing The Underground space at Nile Theater in Mesa, Arizona left me inspired, exhausted and in pain.
