On the podcast "Worst Gig Ever," Geoff Garlock (Orchid, Panthers, the Year Is One, Low Estate, UCB Theatre) wallows in the crapulance of what it takes to be a musician in this world, with different guests sharing their own hilarious horror stories every week. "[History] is a ball and chain and the greatest thing ever," says former Coliseum frontman Ryan Patterson of starting over with his new dark-wave band Fotocrime and moving outside of hardcore music. True to the podcast's guiding concept, the singer happily takes us down memory lane to relive some of his more remarkable misadventures from life on the road — from shooting airsoft pellet guns in the van, eating weeks-old "punk stews," seeing fans smashing delicate fine china at basement shows and much more.
