Remember That Time Koe Wetzel Took a Beer Can to His Head? [Distant Replay]
Throwing things at others is something most children grow out of by, like, six. For the love of God, don't chunk beers at bands who are performing for you on a stage. But Koe Wetzel's response to an asshat in Texarkana, TX throwing a beer at his noggin was poetic, and this week we relive it on our Distant Replay.
It's situations such as these that we get real insight into who our favorite singers are, at their core. There are so many ways Koe could've reacted: cuss the drunken dunce out, call him a "d*ckhead," have security remove him, jump into the crowd and hit him with a beer bottle, walk off the stage; really any one of these could be argued as a reasonable reaction.
But all would've turned the beerial-assault into something more than it needed to be. Koe handled it like only Koe could. Koe doesn't waste beer, and Koe knows the show must go on.
Shortly after the 2017 incident occurred we DM'd Lucas Owen, who tweeted the video, he explained why it is that Koe is connecting so well with fans, "he looks like he just got done bush hogging (the shirt, keys, and bandanna), and showed up to have a good time and play music all night.”
... "To have a good time, and play music all night." Not even a beer to the head can slow down the Koe show.
