What’s good with Committee Entertainment? The same company that had riot police come out when fans couldn’t get into a Dada Life show are now back in the limelight (for good or ill) after word that Carnage, who was performing at Club Cinema in Florida, got arrested for playing 45 minutes after his set was supposed to be over. They let the world know that he “shut shit down” and “left with a smile,” but we have to wonder: why would they let him go so far over the allotted set time? We’ve seen 15, 20 minute encores, but almost an hour? “Turn down for what” might be the motto, but we have many questions. Judging from the pictures we’ve seen, it seems like cops stood there for a bit. What was going on during the time when Carnage first got told to stop playing and when the cops finally shut it down? Until we get the full story (i.e. whenever Carnage starts talking), we just have to go with the picture and info we’ve been given.
