Bent Rudder in Long Beach, WA was a very large “redneck” bar, with mostly loggers and fishermen patrons. Very loud, wild & crazy, and very armed as well.
Having a Seattle band play there was a big deal for them, so we gave them a very long show.
However, as we were loading out after Sat. night performance, a drunk logger challenged our drummer to a fight. We were able to persuade him to cool off and were able to depart without incident.
