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. On this episode, Gatecreeper vocalist Chase Mason (who also plays in doom dealers Spirit Adrift) discusses his former day job working at a porn billing company before the band took off, growing up going to Arizona house shows, maybe getting catfished by Thanksgiving hosts, being too old to do "the sneak in" (to pile in and pay for one hotel room), playing a vape shop that was painted like a teenage girl's bedroom and that shawarma he had in Budapest where he sharted himself. Listen below.
