The Regrettes’ Set At The Growlers Six Was Cut Short By Unruly Attendee PHOTOS: THE REGRETTES @ THE GROWLERS SIX 10/29/17
San Pedro, CA-
” …Lydia would later address the incident on social media, reassuring fans that she was all right and would keep on rocking. The stage is supposed to be a safe place for every performer. Let’s make sure it stays that way… “
Being a performer is one of the most vulnerable things you can do. The last thing I want to worry about during a performance is being in danger in any way. The stage should always feel like a safe space for self expression and art. Yesterday, someone invaded my safe space in an aggressive manner and that is absolutely not okay. Thank you for all of your concern and love. I am still pretty shocked about what went down, but I will be totally fine. I did not know the girl who attacked me. I was told she was on a lot of drugs and mistook me for someone else. Love you all and I'll see you next month on the east coast.
