Alan Braxe Accused of Peeing On Stage During DJ Set in San Francisco
Update: Braxe rep says: “This is a personal attack”
Update: In a statement, an Alan Braxe representative claims DNA Lounge’s accusations are false: “I would just like to confirm this is a complete fabrication of the truth and Alain in no way urinated on any curtain or wall. This is a personal attack on Alain and something we will be taking very seriously indeed.”
Alan Braxe is what some might consider an important figure in French electronic music. He is also allegedly someone who likes to urinate on stage, apparently. As FACT points out, San Francisco venue DNA Lounge posted an explanation on its website as to why Braxe was kicked out of his show there this weekend:
Turns out that our headlining DJ last night, Alan Braxe, has a bladder control problem. That’s the generous explanation for why he decided, in the middle of his DJ set, to turn around and piss on our back-wall curtain instead of using the restroom which is twenty feet away.
After his set, when we had tossed him out, he was aghast that we chose not to let him back in. We said that we’d be happy to let him in if he paid us what it was going to cost to have the curtain cleaned. He declined. Also he threatened to sue us. “For what?” I inquired. “Because I wouldn’t come out and talk to him,” Barry tells me.
Well, good luck with that.
