Filter is awesome. At yesterday's KLAQ BBQ, they continued to play in the rain long after most bands would have run for shelter, citing their "contracts" and saying they didn't want to "get killed by lightning." Not Filter. They are so effing cool.
Right before I introduced them I had what I call a "Larry David" Moment. That is defined as " offending someone unintentionally or talking your way into a corner that you are then unable to talk your way out of."
Here's what happened.
