Brass Against apologise after frontwoman Sophia Urista

… urinates on fan’s face during live show

Band have since apologised in a post on social media

Audience members at Welcome to Rockville festival were shocked by a performance from cover band Brass Against, after frontwoman Sophia Urista appeared to urinate on a fan.

The band, known for covering songs by bands such as Soundgarden and Black Sabbath, were performing a rendition of “Wake Up” by Rage Against the Machine when the incident occurred.

After inviting a fan on stage, Urista instructed him to lie down. She then proceeded to pull down her trousers and appeared to urinate on his face, while still performing the song.

Those at the show in Daytona Beach, Florida, and people watching the clips online branded the moment “disgusting”.

The New York-based collective has since apologised for the stunt and said Urista got “carried away”.

“Sophia got carried away. That’s not something the rest of us expected, and it’s not something you’ll see again at our shows. Thanks for bringing it 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”.

Before the incident, Urista was heard telling the crowd that she needed to urinate. “Get my man with the can on his head ready, ’cause we’re going to bring him onstage and I’ma p*** in this motherf***er’s mouth,” she said.

“I gotta pee,” she added. “And I can’t make it to the bathroom. So we might as well make a show out of it.”

:joy:That’s utter bullshit, she did the thing, the band are trying to back her up (probably to save all their arses). Their google history post event will tell all.
