Audience members at the Welcome to Rockville festival were shocked by the cover band Brass Against’s performance, after their leader, Sophia Urista, appeared to urinate on a fan.
The band, known for covering songs by bands like Soundgarden and Black Sabbath, were performing a cover of Rage Against the Machine’s ‘Wake Up’ when the incident occurred.
After inviting a fan to the stage, Urista motioned for him to lie down. He then proceeded to drop his pants and apparently peed on his face, as he continued to perform the song.
Those who attended the show in Daytona Beach, Florida, and people who viewed the tapes online called the moment “disgusting.”
After that, the New York-based group apologized for the act and said that Urista “got carried away.”
“We had a great time last night at Welcome to Rockville,” they said in a post on Twitter.
Sophia got carried away. That is not something the rest of us expected, and it is not something they will see again at our shows. Thanks for giving it your all last night, Daytona. “
The band’s Facebook page, which has more than 450,000 fans, describes them as “a collective with the goal of creating music to inspire social and personal change.”
