Spider1 From Powerman 5000 Remembers His KLAQ Balloonfest Performance
It’s a painful memory, but … in the end … turns out to be one of his favorites!
Powerman 5000 played the 2010 KLAQ Balloonfest, despite a bad head injury Spider suffered shortly before taking the stage!
I’m having a beer with one of the other bands, errrr … I mean, working really hard when Powerman 5000s tour manager comes flying out of the RV yelling at me to call for an ambulance. Spider One had suffered a BAD head wound while warming up.
It was way busy at the park that day and the medics were scattered taking care of others so for a few agonizing minutes there, all he and I could do was try and control the bleeding. The medical people got there, did their thing and Powerman 5000 gave one of the best Balloonfest performances EVER!
A moment Spider remembered well when I interviewed him recently, check out his recollection!
This year we added camping to the experience as well, reserve your spot now while there are still some left!
