Demand Forces Municipal Waste Venue Changes
Municipal Waste have been greatly enjoying their time in Latin America. The shows have been some of the most incredible of the band's career and every moment both on and offstage, has been a memorable one. Frontman, Tony Foresta comments on the great times they've experienced so far on their Latin American tour:
"Greetings from Bogotá Columbia! We're about 5 days into our South American tour and it has been a really fun one. We just finished our 2 gigs in Mexico one of which was with Sacred Reich, Cynic and Dying fetus. That was a really fun time and its is always a good to hang with Phil and the rest of the Sacred Reich dudes. Our show last night in Bogotá was really insane. Kids were jumping off of the balcony and scaffolding. I didn't know whether to sing or just watch the insanity unfold. The crowds here have been really cool too. They get really rowdy but are very respectable to each other and the band. So far no one has fallen into our equipment or done anything stupid to mess up our show up. Very very cool audiences. It makes it so much more fun to play when its like that.
"My favorite thing so far is seeing all of the Waste bootleg shirts that people make and sell. They are so funny. My favorite shirt was a picture of me Phil and Ryan chilling with a fan on the back of the shirt (pictured here). I guess the guy making the shirt thought the fan was Dave and that he was printing a band photo on the back! It looks hilarious. Also some kids make there own Waste shirts and wear them to the gigs. I've seen some really cool ones. I love it when fans do that.
"One bad thing that happened was that Phil got food poisoning on the first day in Guadalajara. It was really bad. We almost had to cancel our Mexico City gig. But the promoter called a medic to the show and he gave Phil some pill that made him feel a bit better. He managed to tough it out and played a killer set. I've never seen him that sick in my life. It was scary. What a trooper. Gotta run. Off to Peru! More adventures to be had!"
