Best Punk Moment Phoenix 2010 - Die Ignorant hosts a car wash at Applebee's
What do you do when your band is broke and a national act wants you to go on the road with them for a few weeks? If you're Die Ignorant, you try to get an investor. And when that investor falls through, you steal a page from the McClintock High School volleyball team's playbook and host a fundraising carwash. If no one else will let you do it at their place of business, you go to popular American chain restaurant Applebee's. Then, we make fun of you because, you know, it's ridiculous. You're in a band, dude, play shows to make money! Actually, though, we have to give credit to Die Ignorant, who not only raised enough money to tour with California's Guttermouth, but taught us a valuable lesson about punk rock. That lesson? Screw the media; do what you gotta do. With that, the guys earned our sincere respect. We've already marked their upcoming bake sale at Chick-fil-A on our calendar.
