Local darkwave mainstay Bare Mattress has actually refused to play a show in the Capital District for the first time. Local hardcore band leader X. Vox was disappointed.
“We really needed an opener, and I asked Jay. He says, dude, Hans will play any show, he’s awesome. And then the guy says no!”
“I had nothing against the band or the show,” insists Hans, lead singer of Bare Mattress; “I just had 2 other shows to play that night. I’ll play with them next time though.”
Though Hans typically plays 7 nights a week, he admits to enjoying time off now and then. “Wednesday I didn’t have a gig and it was really cool. I ordered some Chinese food and played Grand Theft Auto. I’m thinking of taking at least one night off a week from now on.”
