Riot as told by an anonymous Mansonwiki user[edit]

The Lost Horizon is a small club that hosts local punk bands and smaller national touring acts. It's a little smaller than "The Clubhouse" in Tempe. Smaller than the old Electric Ballroom, but about the same acts played there. The stage is about 1 or 2 feet above the pit area. There is no room for barricades, and in 1996, a small club never used such things anyhow. The pit was about 20 feet from stage to the next seating area. There, there was about a 1-2 foot step with a railing across the width of the room. I was posted up dead center on that step. The pit was packed. Behind me were some tables and the bar itself.

For some reason, Mr. Manson kept getting electric shocks through his microphone. This was pissing him off to no end. After about 4 songs, he threw a fit and walked off the stage. Roadies and venue personnel brought a rubber mat for him to stand on and I think swapped out the mic cord. He came back out and the band played another song and a half. He was still getting electrocuted. About half-way through Down In The Park he kicked over the mic stand and smashed the drums while the band kicked over amp stacks and the drum kit before they all stormed off stage.

After about a 10 to 15 minute wait, the band came back out wearing their street clothes. Marilyn proclaimed to us that the club was a piece shit and that we should tear this motherfucker to the ground.

Almost instantly after the first chord of Irresponsible Hate Anthem, beer bottles started flying. About a minute into the song, some people in the pit got up and started pulling the drop-ceiling down. Metal track and ceiling tiles started flying *everywhere*. A large chunk hit me (about 2'x2') and I gave it a throw. It left my hand like a Frisbee and sailed over the entire pit area and hit Marilyn in the chest. Glass, metal and all sorts of other stuff are going everywhere. A fight or two have broken out in the pit area directly in front of me. Tables and chairs are getting knocked over and thrown around directly behind me. The venue cut the front of house speakers. The band kept playing. Since Marilyn's mic was off, he stormed off stage while the band continued to play out of their amp stacks. Security is trying to take of the situation, but the 4 fat guys with goatees were no match to the 150 people going apeshit. Finally, the venue cut all power to the stage and the rest of the music stopped. The band smashed their instruments and ran out of there. Yet the chaos in the club ensued for several more minutes.

As told by a Spookhouse user[edit]

OKAY!!! The concert in syracuse started off really sucky. I hate the club (the lost horizon). there is an unusually long wait. they played the xian music twice and then started the diamana galas music. they finally came out. Get your gunn. It was very good. Then another song (organ grinder?) . Then they started another song (cake and sodomy?) . the rev was getting **VERY** pissed. he smashed the mic stand a few times, threw the mic down and walked off. Twiggy put his bass covering his amp so it started to feed back. daisy did likewise. Pogo threw his keyboard across the stage into the drums. Ginger got up and left. (it's looking real bad) Frankie comes out and they fix the stage. They put tape around the rev's mic. They come back out and start with down in the park. (the rev is **PISSED**) he get's most of the way through it and smashes his guitar down and then smashes it into the drums, he then leaves. Twiggy gives his bass to someone off stage, as does daisy. pogo leaves, ginger kicks apart his drums and also leaves. <<>> they start to rebuild the stage during the wait. they put rubber mats on the stage where the rev stands. Finally, they come back out. They are ALL pissed at this point. The rev screams about how the club sucks and that if they could get their shit together he wouldn't be getting fucking electrocuted. He says they are going to play a few more songs, but it was up to us to rip this place apart. IRRESPONSIBLE HATE ANTHEM. (like I said they are pissed) about into the second chorus the ceiling behind me comes down. (here's the layout. First the stage, then a pit area where there is a high ceiling. then a railing and a higher floor where there is a dropped ceiling) the dropped ceiling get's completely removed. Chaos ensues. The rev gets hit by a large peice of the ceiling tile, but continues to sing (zepp is taping the whole thing) (don't ask me for a tape, I don't have one; zepp works for the band) The club shuts down the lights and the sound system, but the band still has power to their own amps and continue to play. they finish the song (in the dark) and then they leave. (it's now 10:50 pm) shows over. But we aren't done. The crowd stays for ten more minutes ripping the place apart. Franky comes out at about 10:55 and announces that The Rev. got hit by somethin and that his eye is bleeding. A riot almost starts. A bouncer jumps into the pit and starts punching people (fucking total anarchy at this point) ceiling tiles, the metal support braces, and beer bottles are flying everywhere) finally at eleven most people start to leave.

--the end - No name given.
