Charlotte black metal band Young and in the Way left Asheville's Lexington Avenue Brewery a bloody mess on Sunday night after spraying pig's blood during its performance.
The LAB, as it's known to locals, is one of the city's biggest entertainment venues. It closed its doors for cleaning yesterday. A sign on the door read, "Sorry for the inconvenience, we are closed for the next few days for reasons beyond our control. We appreciate your patronage and look forward to seeing you again soon."
A video posted on Instagram shows the bloody aftermath and cleanup. Comments under the video include, "#yaitw left the lab in ruins yesterday" and "I think the curtains and rug are done for. Lol." The concert was held to celebrate the 17th anniversary of Empire Tattoo.
The LAB's Facebook page posted the following:
