Coalesce / Cave In 10.8.09
got the chance to hang out with Sean Ingram at the free Coalesce and Cave In show at the Knitting Factory in Hollywood that was sponsored by Scion. I felt like i was interviewing him, so ill try to pass along some of what i learned.
1. Scion was sponsoring the event as a marketing tool. instead of putting money into tv ads and stuff, they flew the two bands across country to play in markets that they thought needed help, Atlanta and LA. the bands got to stay in 4 star hotels and all expenses paid for. the cool thing was that Scion didnt put up ANY posters. all they did was pass out shirts after the show. the knitting factory holds 500 people, and close to 2000 people RSVP'd for free entry.
2. Sean has 4 kids, Jes has 4 kids, Nathan has 2 and Jr. has 2.
3. Smallville is a real city in Kansas
4. Coalesce rules
Sean is one of the smartest most down to earth dudes ive ever met. i feel lucky to call him a friend. its awesome when your friends happen to be in some of your favorite bands.
Cave In was whatever. they played a couple old songs, and a bunch of new ones. honestly i dont like anything they did after Creative Eclipses.
After the show we went to House Of Pies and then walked by Danzig's house.
