MsHurricane Lives Here

For those who missed out on all the fun, Thorin Klosowski is here to save the day! He wrote this wonderful event recap for DETHRIDE on Westword’s art + culture blog Show & Tell.

“The award ceremony, to which we were called up to the stage to collect our rewards, followed after three of the bands on the ticket played. Under normal conditions, this wouldn’t have been a problem, but as it turns out, I get a little clumsy when I’m on a stage in front of people, and I managed to drop and spread out all of our winnings. Maybe it was the fact that organizer Jen Nordhem kept calling us all nerds, or maybe I’d just had a couple too many drinks. It was classy either way. “

This is Thorin right before dropping all the “winnings” captured by Sarah Slater.

That was funny. But back to the serious stuff. We had a great turn out, 65 DETHRIDERS joined us at 3 Kings for a night of bikes, metal and art.

Congrats to the first place team, check out their sweet shirts! Art by Sam Turner, printed + donated by Indy Ink.

Thanks for coming, everyone! This may turn into an annual deal so stay tuned!
