British extreme metallers CRADLE OF FILTH have posted the following account of their ill-fated November 8 show at Bogart's in Cincinnati, Ohio (which was cut short after two people were stabbed during a fight with a security guard):
"We played [Bogart's] last year and so were familiar with the local surroundings. Not much going on, just like last time. Went for lunch with some of the ARCH ENEMY guys and then sound checked. The show started out good. Both HIMSA and ARCH ENEMY did their solid sets and it was about half way through BLEEDING THROUGH's set that things started to go weird. None of the bands knew what was going on at first. The main hall lights come on mid-song and the police came in and shut the show down. Frontman Brandon got news and went onstage to explain to the fans it was going to be difficult for the show to continue as the police had proclaimed the venue as a crime scene, due to an incident involving a bouncer and a group of fans. It sounded serious at first. Someone had been stabbed. We were half-way getting ready and were instructed to leave the building and went and sat on the bus and waited it out. The rest of the night went slowly as we reluctantly got back to our normal selves without actually playing the show. We did go out and sign stuff for the few remaining fans that were waiting around in the cold. The rest, as they say, is history."
