Crank County Daredevils - Bilbao, Spain 1.15.10

Found these photos on Flickr from a photographer in Bilbao, Spain from the 2010 European tour. Great live show photographer and has a ton of other great imagery. This was a crazy night for sure. We had no idea what we were in for, as we were looking for the normal type of punk rock bar then we pull up to this killer huge theater right in heart of old Bilbao. Bull fighting bars across the street, posh hotel and the Basque folks were more than gracious. The fellas in Crank County were opening up for the Bottle Rockets, who were great folks by the way. Well, the promoter and staff were awesome and the fans were amazing. But around 1am the place turned into a crazy dance club and damn if the real madness didn't begin. Those crazy Basque's would drink red wine and Coke, yeah, no shit, what the hell kind of drink is that? So of course they are having a good ol' time. Multiple near fights later after them grabbing drinks and thumping chests and throwing bravado and then after showing us how to swig their local flavor, all was cured. Bottoms up and hats off to one amazing city and hearty group of folks, Bilbao Spain we miss ya!
