"I'm told that your client has testified under oath in a deposition that he presented a former employee of Psychopathic Records with a glass dildo, who then allegedly gave the dildo to me? ...If he was joking then he's just an asshole who isn't funny. But if it was not 100% clear that he was attempting to make a joke, then he just lied under oath because I've never met your client, and if I had met your client I'd certainly remember if he tried to give me a glass fucking dildo... You're the types of lawyers that make America a worse place for everyone."

The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
