Luca Brasi Call Out “Piece Of Shit” For Sexually Assaulting Fans During Sydney Show

000000Luca-Brasi

Tassie vibe-punks Luca Brasi are halfway through their biggest ever headline run of Australia – a completely sold out ripper of a tour, at that. BLUNT were in tow to catch the madness unfold in Sydney, last Friday night: the music was loud, the beers were frothy, and the pits were as wild as only a Luca Brasi pit can be (see: hella). But while it was a great night for some of us, there is unfortunately a small group of fuckbuckets in the scene who exist purely to sour the experience for others.

After their set, the Brasi boys were made aware of “a certain piece of shit male in the audience” – as they’ve described in a statement to their Facebook page – who sexually assaulted two female punters in the crowd. It goes without saying that this is beyond unacceptable, but somehow, even in 2016 and after countless other similar incidents, this shit is still going on.

We play shows because we love it, people come to these shows to enjoy the music, everyone has the right to be safe and other people’s bodies ARE NOT YOUR PROPERTY,” the band wrote. “Completely and utterly horrified and dismayed, if you want to come to see us play, keep your hands to your fucking self, it is NOT HARD TO DO. If you believe it is your right as a male to do as you please, you are NOT WELCOME HERE.”

As comments on the band’s post have pointed out, this was not an isolated incident, either. Luca Brasi’s tour kicks back off on Thursday in Perth, before moving through Adelaide, Melbourne and Hobart. If you’re planning on hitting any of those shows up, we wholly recommend keeping an eye out for any unsavoury types in the crowd and tipping them off to your nearest seccy.
