PICTURE THIS: The Airborne Toxic Event @ Warfield, SF 4/11/13
It was an early opener with an 8pm start, we”re not exactly sure why, but we heard rumors of needing to get back to LA for Leno or something. Even though half the house arrived late, we were there front row center for opener Nightmare Air.
After they finished, we met a group of a half dozen Los Angelans who had been following The Airborne Toxic Event around the country like Deadheads (and they were dressed like Deadheads to boot). After the third song, Mikel Jollett (lead singer) jumped into the pit, then the crowd, and Anna Bulbrook jumped onto Noah Harmon”s shoulders. It was a happy blur of musical madness.
