The Defibulators go to Prison!

While in Belgium, we played our first prison gig.
Belgian PrisonThe Hoogstraten State Prison is an old castle that Napoleon used to hang out in.

We weren’t allowed to take pictures of the inmates, but here is the view of the auditorium from the stage:

For dinner we ate prison sandwiches and drank toilet wine.

The inmates were loud and rowdy, hollering at Bru throughout the set, and Metalbelly nearly caused a riot at the end of ‘Down in Mexico’.

Here’s our video diary of the gig:
